Dear Member,

I just bought and old snowblower John Deere 726 , and I want to apply new paint to each part. My questions is How I unfix the shaft from the auger housing(see pictures).

Do I need a puller or a heather ?

Please help me

Take off that bushing flange, then unbolt both sides of the auger and bow the bucket very slightly and remove the entire impeller/auger assembly.

Usually that bushing, as well as the auger shaft end bushings will need replacing.

Another one that wears out often is the end bushing behind the cap on the auger/impeller gear case. While your there, might want to replace seals also ..... that is all depending if your going that far .... you will know if that bushing is shot, as the back of the impeller will be scraping the back side of the impeller housing.

Yes, you have to remove that woodruff key in the keyway, and save it for re-assembly. Be careful not to damage it, and clean it up good with a file if you put any dings in it.

If all else fails, tap it out and just replace it .... woodruff keys are cheap and can be found locally .....

Dear Oneacer,

As you can see I am ready for the winter season,

Thanks to you and all the members who kindly answered me, I was able to disassemble my blower and paint it.

Here is the final result.

Nice job .... if you find those lawn tires slipping on you, you can put on some XTrac, as I did on my 826 restore ... I also could not find poly skids with the 2 inch oc holes, so I made my own out of poly ....
