Would anyone know if I could get a lower blower chute rod for a tube frame 38" blower ??  The part # is  1734779..

 

      Are they still available or a'm I going to have to start a parts blower search.

 

      I was thinking of making one   or    getting my broken one  welded  ( again )

 

         Any thoughts    Thanks    sodi

There's plenty of blowers around so it shouldn't be too hard to locate one.

Where did yours break?  I usually just grind down and re-weld mine

     Right in front of the lower entrance into the blower chute, it's self.. It had been welded before at that same spot

Could have been a bad weld

Its strange that these rods break, maybe they were made out of inferior metals?  I dont know but I have had atleast 3 blowers with broken chute rods that I had to weld up, you wouldnt think solid steel would break moving a tiny Chute!???

Likely a vibration-induced failure mode.

more likely the torsion on the shaft is exceeding the strength of the metal that's why i lube the chute plates and a plus to that they don't freeze up and cause undue stress on the shaft thus reducing overall stress including stressing over repairing and or replacing said shaft . after you repair / replace the shaft use a light grease like white lithium or something along those lines and grease the heck out of the chute base and gear this has saved me from excess stress for the last 3 years that i've  used my blower and it doesn't rust around the base with the grease in there so it's drop it and hook to the tiller in the spring instead of service this and that before you drop it . :thumbs:
