At some point I will get the sensor out(which looks like I need to take apart the auger as I can't get to it with a wrench/ratchet) and have a look.
You should be able to access it with a combination wrench... I like these ratcheting ones.

Hmm. Well, I will have another look. I didn’t see an angle at which I could get a wrench on it when I was in there.

Wouldnt you replace or test sensor to see if that is the problem before removal/bypass? If a new sensor does not shut down engine then you know for sure there is no other problems. If a new one also shuts down the engine could you perhaps be causing more expensive repairs down the road by bypasssing?

seriously want to know as I have very little repair exp with these HSS models.

Yeah, as I've suggested to him, the FIRST thing I would have done after checking the shear bolts and clevis pins would be to pull out the limit switch and check it. It's just a simple switch.

Well thanks for the thoughts but I’m not sure why you thought I didn’t know where the sensor was. As I mention I disconnected the sensor and also stated I could not get a wrench on the sensor when I first had a look. I’ll post what I find when I get the sensor out.

Sorry, but it's been about a month and a half. When you first posted I went out and pulled my limit switch and checked/reinstalled it in maybe 5-7 minutes, so my suspicion was that you might have needed a visual cue. At one point you were talking about disassembling the gearbox to get to the switch, so just trying to be helpful...
