Hi all, I've been gone a while but winter hates me and my blower again.


I can't seem to find a listing for the captured nuts that hold the blower to the tractor. Does anyone have a source or part number?


Also, apparently the lithium grease I use turns to cement at 0 degrees. What do you all use for grease on the drive components?

aren't they just 5/16x18 hex nuts? should be able to find waterproof low temp grease at your local auto parts store.

I believe they are 3/8-16 but they are captured by a cage to hold them in.


I searched NapaOnline and found nothing but I could take a ride over there. I think I need a belt anyway.

I ended up getting this:

But there's a lot of metal contact in the carriage that slides the rubber drive wheel back and forth so grease in there is going to make it stiff. Maybe it should just be a bit of oil.

Also, it turns out I had flipped a cheapo auger belt so a new Napa Kevlar went in, re-filled the auger box, and did an oil change.

Jack, I'll give you a visit when I get a free afternoon.

Napa has the lithium grease is a tube the size of tooth paste. Perfect for that hex shaft that runs the rubber drive wheel. Regular ole grease is fine for everywhere else.

In my dumb movie you see me with that tube from Napa.
