auger shaft

i have a ys624t (1987 i believe) and it has a cracked auger shaft at the keyway. i looked for a new one and found the part to be obsolete. i see a shaft for the newer models is still available but a different part number. i see the gear and bearings are the same number so the shaft diameter and gear housings are the same. the augers are different. all i can think of is the shear pin holes on the shaft might be different? any ideas on if i can replace with the newer model and just redrill some holes in the augers or get the one i have welded?
hate to junk a good blower

Welcome to the forum Billy

Don't know about the new one fitting with some drilling but you should be able to have a machine shop weld and cut the key way back in.
Just not sure how much $$$ it might be.
You might need to drop in a couple shops to see.

Would like to see some photos of your machine and also the damaged piece if you get time.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

When you say a newer model, what exactly are you referring to?

Could you post a few pics of your shaft and augers for comparison, I have a few plastic fuel tank YS624 (wich I assume are what you call later models)

I'll look at them tomorrow and get back with what I find, can you measure the distance from the end of the auger "tube" to the shear pin hole on the augers and also, do they have the shear bolt on the auger housing side or on the gearbox end?

hopefully somebody will have a good used one. try looking on CL for a non-running unit you could grab for parts. I don't see any parts for yours ebay at the moment. Keep looking - something will turn up.
