hello new here and trying to find auger bearings for my 2 stage blower. i just got it working and the chain tensioner and belt tensioner went, fixed them and found the auger bearings are bad also. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1st of Welcome to GTtalk graycharles88! I just looked up the numbers for the bearings. They are showing as NLA.

 

I have the same blower myself but the bearings are in good shape. My only guess would be to measure the old ones up ( ID from the shaft since bearing is worn) then call an industrial bearing supplier and they could help you find a replacement that way.

 

The blower is made by Jacobsen if you didn't know already and the bearings are JAC342858 or JAC343498

 

I'll look around more, Good luck.

Welcome to the forum. I upload a Jacobsen 2-stage blower manual a while back. I hope this  is your blower.  I agree with Chris on finding the bearings, probably the easiest way. If you can get one off and take it with you, that may help them match it up.

We may have manual for both the tiller and mower in the Manuals section. These were built by Jacobsen, so you may have to look for the manuals with a Jacobsen name on them. I have some more to upload.

A few pics of what you have can help us help you, so check out the link at the bottom of my signature for pic help. Also, there is a thread here  that may help.

I went back and edited the links. Those are working now. Not sure of the challenge earlier with this.

A couple things you should know when looking at parts books for these old Ford/Jacobsen tractors is  they messed up on a lot of there parts lists.

 

If you look at a parts drawing then look at the list with the part numbers, you will notice some of the item numbers are not what they show on the drawing. This can mess you up if you don't know the name of a particular part.

 

So far I have seen it in a 67 Ford 100 gt parts manual, and now again in the 36"  2 stage snowblower parts manual.

 

I think it showed the snowblower bearings as item number 18 but on the list they actually show as item 4 (or close to that)

 

Also if you go to New Holland Tractors site here http://www.messicks....llandparts.aspx on the left of the page that comes up, second search box down (parts look up) enter in the part numbers you find in any Ford/Jacobsen manual.

 

When entering a part number from the manual add "JAC" in front of the part number. Example: 343498 in manual would be JAC343498

 

They do not have a lot of parts for these machines (They bought Ford/Jacobsen). But sometimes you will also find alternate part numbers, Then you can search the Net and or Ebay and some times I have had luck finding parts.

 

Good luck with your Ford! These are great machines IMO! :D

Take your old bearings to your local NAPA....Either they can measure or cross refference the number on them....or can refer a local machine shop that can get the bearings for you.
