Hey guys. I'm not sure of the model number on my blower but I think it is off an Estate keeper. I made some changes to be able to mount it on the 800. The problem is with the shoot crank. It is up front on the left hand side so I have to bend over the hood to change the direction of it. I would love to get the proper shoot and crankarm so it comes up on the right side so I could change directions from the seat. I'm quite sure the would be adaptable with a little work. Does anyone have a scraped blower and willing to sell just these parts.

Trent:

Can you post a pic of what you have?

What is the width of the snowblower?

A picture would help in identifying which blower you have....

Alright here goes with the pics you wanted Bruce. It is a 32 inch thrower. As you can see where the crank is now is causing scratches to the hood when I have it up. So I see a bit of painting in the future.

Yeah that is definitely a older model EK Snow caster.
I believe all you would have to do is get a chute crank assembly off a tubeframe snow caster and you would be all set.

That was what I was thinking also, but would I need the big gear on the chute and the little gear on the crank.

The plastic pinion Gear was the same on both models ,but I am getting different numbers on the chute housing.
Those may need to be switched as well.

Parts breakdown for the #19302 -01 & -02 Estate Keeper Sno-Caster (which appears to be what you have) is located here:

http://gardentractor...-32-sno-caster/

Parts breakdown for the (32") #18514 -01 & -02 and (36") # 18516 -01 Tube-Frame attachments is located here:

http://gardentractor...ster-partslist/

The main auger housing is the same for all of the above, but you will have to compare part numbers to see what is interchangeable, and what different parts you will need.

If you feel ambitious, you could probably shorten the shaft/crank assy that you have, and add a reversible 12v motor for remote operation of the chute rotation.

Now that sounds interesting, but do you have any ideas where would I find one of those 12v motors?

What a shame, I have what your looking for too, and am going to scrap it, as the auger sprocket is worn out, and it doesnt throw far enough for my drive.

Trent, power window and power seat motors should have enough torque to rotate the chute, and should be available cheaply from auto salvage.

You could also try Surplus Sales (www.surplussales.com) or Surplus Center (www.surpluscenter.com) to see if they have 12vdc motors. ...You need to make sure they are reversible.

I did purchase a 12vdc reversible motor through Grainger's years ago.
