Smile Yamaha YS828W partial restoration

This is my latest YS828W (#6).
I purchased it yesterday. It seems to be by far the most solid 828 I've gotten (seems like it did not get too much use for its age, but unfortunately was not garage kept, so it needs cosmetic attention).
Auger housing, augers serations and even the scraper blade are in very good shape (despite the corrosion on them).
I've decided to give it the powder coat treatment of the auger housing and all of its components.
It will be getting commercial Honda side skids (side plates are drilled already to fit them).
I was able to disassemble it tonight except for one auger which has a seized shear pin and possibly seized auger. As soon as I get it apart I'll be dropping them off at the powdercoating place.
I will try to keep you updated on the progress of the project.

How were the bearings on the end of the auger shaft?

Bearings are bad, but whenever I disassemble an auger housing, I change the bearings, unless they are in excellent condition (which rarely happens).

I was able to remove the seized shear pin, but (as suspected) the left side auger is seized to the shaft, so I would have to deal with it (I'll try the heat and cool trick fist since it worked on another YS828 with frozen/seized augers).

Just dropped off the parts at the powder coating place (except the siezed auger that I still have to remove).
It will probably take a few weeks or so to get them back.
I'll keep you posted.

I was able to free up and removed the remaining seized auger (using heat/cool/twist and pull method), so this evening it will be dropped off at the powder coating place.

Hey, while you are waiting for those parts to come back from the powder coater, a nice road trip to Bay City to pick this up might just be the ticket. You know it has your name written all over it...

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

It really looks like a very nice and clean unit.
And while it will make a nice addition to my Yamaha OPE "collection" I really like a Zero Turn Mower instead of a Tractor.
I also need to sell some of my Yammies before I buy a big ticket item.
It is not a total NO to a Yamaha tractor, but at least not for now, maybe in a few years...., and maybe if I can find one with all or most the attachments (assuming they were made for it)
