Hello,

I purchased, new, a Toro model 37777 Power Max OTE snowthrower. After using it last winter the plastic snow chute cracked and finally developed a nice hole. The machine has a lifetime warranty on the chute system but I was unable to take the machine to the dealer so I took the damaged part. The problem is that I am unable to get the spring tensioned properly in the new chute assembly.
Gentlemen, I need help, please. Snow is on its way in the upper peninsula of Michigan.

Are you talking about part # 20 here: Toro 37777, Power Max 826 OTE Snowthrower, 2015 (SN 315000001-315999999) Parts Diagram for CHUTE ASSEMBLY


Those torsion springs are a bit tricky - you have to wind it a few turns as you slip the rod down through it while maintaining the ends of the spring so that you can slip it into it's rightful resting spot while under tension. I sometimes use a straight rod of some sort to wrap it around then use the actual rod to push that rod out as I work it into place - easier said than done. Keeping the spring wound is that hardest part! A small pair of needle lock nose pliers can act to hold one end while you work with it......
