Son's snowblower all fixed up. New bearings, shaft and changed impeller cog. Went from a 20 tooth to a 22 tooth cog. Throws much better and doesn't kill the engine as much, doesn't use as much gas or oil. The cog on the 90' gear box driving the impeller is 18 tooth.  Greased and oiled blower and tractor while here in shop.  Checked for loose parts, nuts and bolts.  These tractors tend to shake them selfs apart.

Those Kohlers will shake the tin right off the tractor. Have you checked the motor mounts. Some of the Fords were solid mount I think but some have the plate mounts. Those mounts tend to deteriorate and while they may look ok on top they can be cracked underneath and have loosened up to the point where they allow the engine to move too much.

Old cast iron water trough on back with railroad rail, old leaf springs and mower blades in there for weight, no wheel weights, don't really need them. Noel Works good.

is that a custom bearing setup on the first bearing on the snowblower that the driveshaft from the tractor connects to?

It's a self centring bearing that you can get at your local tractor shop. Because it is not original equipment it did not fit in the hole that was there, so we put nuts on to space it out from the metal on the blower. Put one on the other side as well. Works well. Also put the same on another blower too. I can get more pictures if you need. Noel.

same basic idea i was thinking of doing.  My brass bushing was gone .. literally dissapeared.  I pressed the bushing out of my spare snowblower for reference and i was going to try and find some.  for now i made a homemade bushing and retainer to get through this storm!
