Mat did you check out the manual section to see if there is a parts manual for this. Sorry about driving off & forgetting your parts. I knew a guy drove off & left his ramps in the PO's yard. He was too far gone to go back. The excitement overwhelms us all during a buy  :D

I've checked and have yet to locate a manual for my snow blower. I believe mine is 36" and the only one I've found is for the 45" version. I'll keep searching.

I believe this manual will help you, even though it's for a different width snow blower from what I can remember all the mounting brackets and controls are the same on both. 

Hope this helps.

Best I can tell, the brackets or rods circled below are required for full operation. I am missing all items circled so I will be needing to fabricate these items. My dilemma is determining size and dimension.

Are both belt guards required for operation? Thanks.

While I work to resolve my snow blower mounts I had the boys lift the motor off the frame and set it safe and sound on my work bench. To think I had planned to only clean the tractor up and begin using her around the place. Funny how a busted fan can cause one thing to lead to another.

Now to finish the tear down and start cleaning the rest of the frame.

The lift rod #38 can be a length of chain. It will then be adjustable lift height, although it does not lift but a couple inches.

You will find the belt guards are going to be needed to keep the engine belt from coming off.

Dorothy, we're not in Kansas anymore. Today I took the plunge and removed the final bits and pieces from the frame and began the task of cleaning up the frame ahead of priming and painting. With temps consistently below freezing I decided today to build a "paint booth"/ work area in the garage that can be heated so my progress won't suffer due to the cold.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through the frame. A buddy of mine is gifting me a power washer that I hope to put to good use on the frame and trans axle very soon.

Mat are your front's Vredestein's V61 tires. I like those they look good.

Yes. I have them on my '71 Case 444 and really like the look and performance.
