hey guys. so my b112 42" snowthrower attachment finally has its first real problem i think. I just took it out to blow some space for the next storm and after about ten minutes she started clunking. i turned it off and i notice there is a lot of play, movement back and forth on the left side of the unit if you were sitting on the tractor. the side without the 3 screws on the outside of the augerblade.  any ideas on why and how to fix? 

 

two flat tires in 4 days and now this...

Not sure your model, but most have bearings with those 3 bolt plates on each side to center and allow movement. BUT, to get it off might require removing that side's auger completely??  Best to look for manual. Maybe one on here for your model?

 

OR..........maybe a diff brand of lawn equipment needed, hee, hee!  :poke:

haha nah, im sticking with allis. just to be clear, if you were sitting on the tractor its actually the left side bearing I threw. there are 3 screws on the outside of the thrower on the right side(again, right side if sitting on the tractor) 

 

tractor info is 68 allis chalmers b112 with the 42" snowthrower attachment. 

 

its the one in my profile pic.

In the Manuals Section there are a bunch of snow thrower attachment manuals under Simplicity. Find the number on yours and match it up. The ACs and Simplicitys have overlapping manuals. Check both areas when you need a manual. Good Luck, Rick

yeah i took a look in the manuals. im not seeing anything for the 42" snowthrower. they have some kind of listing for it at the end of the b112 PM but just some numbers. no info. on my service manual, there is a whole section for the 36" rotary snow thrower, but its not exactly the same. and i dont know enough to know if it actually is the same "enough" or not.

The bearing with the three holes in the plates are called, self centring bearing, is what I was told to call them. I have two ford blowers that are broke. Not finished cleaning the 65 cm of snow that came yet and the blowers are broke. My sons and mine, and 20 to 30 cm of wet snow coming tomorrow. I am thinking of a newer larger tractor that I can register for highway use and be able to drive it between our driveways to clean each other out, sorry about the rant. Noel

Not a happy camper. !!!!

MH81, the manual has this listed under attachments. but no section on it. the only section on snowthrowers that have pics and text details refer to the older snowthrower, 36", which is slightly different. how much, dont know. another member pointed me in the right direction, but will still appreciate all info anyone has. would love to get the ACTUAL manual for this attachment at some point. im just not finding it anywhere. 

 

the manual states: 

 

421  SNOWTHROWER, ROTARY, 42"  (Use No. 182 and No. 045)

Maybe you can find something in this list (under Attachment & Accessories) as they show a whole bunch of snowthrowers there!

You probably just ruined 9. However when you buy a new bearing it will come with the 2 plates. Replace the bearings on both ends of the rotor. They are relatively cheap and you have to loosen off the lock screws on both anyways to move the rotor enough to get the right bearing off. Take the chain cover off and remove chain and sprocket. Chain has a master link like a bicycle from the factory.File the lock screw divots smooth to get the bearings off the shaft easier..Dave

thanks everyone. I got her fixed and the blower is running smoother and quieter than ever. dave, yeah the flanges were fine. I ended up using a napa bearing which is virtually identical. the hardest part really was getting the set screw off the sprocket. it was heavily painted and super tight inside there. needed a torch and a torque wrench to finally get it off. ruined two allen keys trying. but all is cool now. replaced bearing on both sides and ready to go!

 

thanks again to all. and for petrj walking me through things step by step.
