Did this video help you?

Dave leaf: do you know what kind of fluids or gear lube goes inside the auger gear box?

gwadaman31: GREAT VIDEO AND VERY GOOD EXPLANATION, BRAVO!

Mark Cramer: what would cause the impeller shaft to move back and forth ? so much so that the impeller blades scrape the back of the auger housing and the auger pulley hits the engine frame ? Auger Pulley looks like it woobles a bit too?

Michael Rumak: Rebuilding a very similar blower mtd 29 inch and have looked at the diagram for the blower it only calls for one washer by the gear box and in my parts box i only have 4. Am i missing something?

dick bailey: don, i know you are very busy, but ive a question. i have an mtd snowblower,8/half hp. my auger housing is all bent up,on the bottom, what should i expect to pay for a good used one? pickle bailey thankyou

Rob Kennedy: I am having trouble pulling or separating the Auger and impeller from the bearing! Any advice?

Bruce Bastarache: Can you explain how to determine RH vs LH and in/out on the auger spirals need to be in the case that they get mixed up?

John Romanoff: Thanks for the video. I got the gear box replaced, but now I can't get the impeller/auger assembly back in the housing. The shaft for the impeller won't fit into the bearing. I've greased it, but I don't want to start pounding on the thing now that I fixed it! 

Enrique Benedicto: Salut Don, I think I've detected a bit of a French Canadian accent... but I'm going to go ahead and ask my question in English, in case I'm wrong... :) I have one of those tractor mounted snow thrower from MTD (model OEM-190-823). My auger gear seems all messed up. I'd like to take the assembly out WITHOUT taking the whole Impeller assembly out in the process. There are a couple of spirol pins on the shaft that goes through the Impeller. Is there a way to remove those pins easily without having to pull the Impeller and/or snow housing assembly? If I need to pull everything out... this may just be too much work for me. If I could, however, remove those pins... then the job (with your videos) seems pretty easy. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. P.S. I'm using the user's manual for part names... I have no clue what I'm talking about :)

dick bailey: don, thankyou very much, for your quick reply. i had no idea that the auger housing was that expensive used. thanks again, pickle bailey

Jonathan Dignam: Donnyboy, great video as always. Very detailed. Do I have to maintain the gear case in anyway? Do I have to remove the grease plug and add grease? I have not lubed the MTD snowblower. When I remove the shear bolts what kind of oil do I put in there. There is no nipple for a grease gun anywhere. Thanks

lanp2502: First, thanks for this very helpful video! My problem is very similar to the one in the video, except that my gear is not snapped, but very worn. Is there a way to replace only the gear? It seems to be pressed on the shaft.

Grant Parr: I had a similar problem. There is a pin on the shaft, just behind the gears that broke a couple of times. Difficult to replace the first time.

Jon Jones: Thanks... bought an old one the other day, and the gearbox blew after an hour. With your video and $85, I'm running again

sunshineman68: I forgot to mention that I couldn't find a video that included removing the shaft from the housing. It looked like an easy thing, but since I didn't see anything I ended up taking the bearing retainer plate to see if something else was needed, but didn't see anything. I gave it a couple of taps with a brass hammer, then some anti rust spray, let it sit, and tried the brass hammer touch. Nothing was happening, so I took it into a shop for repair. Here in Michigan we need our snowblowers this year, but I don't think Michigan needs me to be here while all this snow is coming

Lisa Iobst: Thank you so much. I fixed my snow blower yesterday and today we had a foot of snow and worked great! Thanks to your great videos!

sunshineman68: I just watch the video and it looks like you favor replacing the gearbox, maybe because you have them. I haven't taken mine apart, but I'm sure something is broke inside. I guess 12 years of Michigan snow have done it in. Although I did find it interesting about not making shear bolts tight. So I think I might have shortened the life of this part because I usually make my shear bolts snug. I don't really tighten these with a lot of power, just enough so the shear bolts don't spin. Could you have just changed the worm gear on the blower from this video? 

ryanarey79: Great video 

mtbdudex: Thank you for posting this my worm gear went and I'm going to fix now.

Pejones95: Appreciate the video. I am working on my 2005 MTD Pro, the bearing in the housing behind the impeller did not want to come off the shaft. I used a gear puller to get it off. Should that actually just slide out? - I am afraid I stripped the threads inside the impeller shaft when I did it. Also can you recommend a site to purchase parts?

JorgeOcampo22: Thanks donyboy, this is my e-mail address jorgitoloco48@yahoo.com

donyboy73: @semtech30 i never put in regular bolts, this is a shear bolt

dude1352: The machine is 2 years old and seems like no gas going into the carb and I just filed up the tank how can I fix it myself?

donyboy73: @JorgeOcampo22 send me ur email, i have pics of where they go

mcdowlake: @donyboy73 thanks again, i will report back with the result if i can get it just incase your curious.

donyboy73: probably a carb issue

mrbluenun: This is a case of 'false economy', because it really did not need much work doing to it. Some mechanical aptitude and the previous owners would have realised the problem and made what is essentially a new machine from the bits. Nice clear explanations thanks.

donyboy73: @mcdowlake for $50 i would buy it just for the parts and maybe u can get it going??? cheaply who knows, but it's a project

VE9REJ: Great Vid as usual Dude . 5 * Reg

mouse4ahouse: You have some very good videos here on snowblower repair. I have a question though. I have an MTD Snowblower that I am trying to get the gear assembly and auger out of......I have it apart like in this video but can not get it to break free from the bearing in the back. In another video you put a piece of wood on that area and hit is lightly with a hammer and it came out.....no luck for me....suggestions?

donyboy73: @runningtat i would have to physically see it to diagnose it, but make sure nothing is rubbing on the belts, check the idler pulleys to make sure they are in good shape

Larry Lafferty: Thank you I replaced the auger belt and found a stone stunk in the wheel the throws the snow out the shoot. well I have a new auger belt on know. I have to watch your videos on how to tighten the belt a little loose.

mcharb7522: Hi Donyboy, Marc from Ottawa here. I have a 10HP MTD, with 2 auger belts. I've replaced them following the very informative videos from another post. I have a problem though, every time I fire up the engine, the belt closest to the engine keeps jumping off. The idle pulley can't be adjusted like you show in another post. Any ideas how to keep the belt from jumping?

craigpc1974real: Those cheap gearboxes are a reason why i love my 40 plus year old Ariens machines.

Greg D: Interesting that most of the snowblowers you repair are MTD-built units......

donyboy73: practice makes better

rocsvt1: hey donyboy i have a 5/23 craftsman track snowblower and i was wondering what oil to use for the gear box?

Larry Lafferty: I have a tecumseh snow king press the auger lever the auger well not turn I get a squeal what is broke?

WJCTechyman: Yupp, but you still do a good job, and that was fast.

Garrett Jdbe: i like how simple Mtds are i have a MTD myself

WJCTechyman: I can see a vast improvement between this video and your newer ones, as you list what each bolt size is and also how the parts are to be reassembled. Either way you do instruct but you've gotten much better.

Frank Toscano: HI Donyboy,my yardmaster two stage snow thrower wheels lock up when the engine is off. Waiting for Service Advisory MTD 028A Seems there is a bering defect with certain models, lucky me I have one. Have You, encountered this problem?

LARRY NORTON: GREAT VIDEO, MADE MY LIFE A LOT EASIER. I JUST REPLACED A GEAR BOX ON MY SNOWKING 5.5 HP SNOWBLOWER. GREAT JOB, EASY TO UNDERSTAND, KEEP POSTING. THANK YOU!!!

imtrev4: darkphoenix, I'm having the same issue w my MTD 8/26 blower. I think it is around a 2005-2008 model. Bought used so not sure. There appears to be a bushing or something that holds it in place. Did u figure out how to get yours off?

donyboy73: @mcdowlake I just bought the gear for the gear box on a 4 hp/20" myself and paid $55 from randysenginerepair on ebay. it all depends how many parts are shot. if u buy a complete assembly it's around $200

deannicholle: I have a yardworks 48" snowblower. The propeller spins but the augar doesn't. I can move the augar by hand no problem with the brake on. I looked online and it looks like it could be a shear pin inside the gear box. Could it be that or could it be something else? Of Course this would happen after getting 30 cm's of snow the other day.....

Larry Lafferty: I am replacing the auger belt hopefully tomorrow just got the belt today thanks.

donyboy73: they break the most, never have honda and rarely ariens

JorgeOcampo22: Hello donyboy. I have a small problem with my mtd 10.5HP snow blower. Its not functioning right and I found out that one spring by the friction wheel is loose and one more , smaller spring is broken and I don't know where it goes. i believe the one loose is like a a belt tensor, but the small one I have no idea where it goes and i have to buy it because its broken, Thanks or your videos, they are very helpful.
