Hey;

ON the front drive hookup , are there supposed to be shear pins that fasten the two ends of the drive shaft to the the gear boxes? That is how it appears to be in the book I have,
and at present there are bolts in there. I got a wobble of about 1/4" or so while running and am trying to get it squared away.

Thanks

Yes , they used a roll pin, but if the shafts and yokes are worn it will most likely break them and make one heck of a mess of them . Best to use a soft bolt that fits snugg in the hole.

Hey ;

Would you have the part number for the universal joints on the drive shaft?

Thanks

Not having a model # for the blower makes it hard to find part #'s. Wonder if the u-joints are the same they use on the tiller?
