Did this video help you?

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?

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! 

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

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

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 :)

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

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?

gwadaman31: GREAT VIDEO AND VERY GOOD EXPLANATION, BRAVO!

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

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

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!

ryanarey79: Great video 

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? 

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?
