I own a 1991 yt18h, dang good tractor, and i found the beloved ford yt 36" snowblower on craigslist this past week.  Had to purchase it sight unseen, which i wasn't wild about, but came from four states away.  Evidently the owner had phone calls from all over the country wanting to buy the dang thing.   Looks like the blower works, but boy is it rusty.  any advice on where to get a few parts?  Looks like the gear box needs seals (started to leak oil when i tipped it over)  and a few new pulleys on the frame section would really help.  Would a new Holland dealer be an help?  also anyone know where i could get a manual for the blower?  i found one on ebay, which i believe is the correct one.  

 

I'm pretty new at this ford tractor thing, and i have only owned by yt a few months.

 

 

Also, the yt it came off of was an 86, and mine is a 91, so i can only hope they are compatible.

Welcome to GTtalk!  :wave:   I can't help on the Ford, as I have little knowledge on them.  Someone will come along shortly with info I'm sure.

I just finished restoreing a Roper 39" blower, If you don't mind, How did you have it shipped? And what was the shipping cost for 4 States away? I may sell mine. 

Oh, and welcome to GTtalk :wave:

PS, I like the rainbow picture.

well i had a buddy heading out east, so he made a side trip for me.  I did contact JB hunt, and shipping freight wasn't too bad 270 bucks.

Thanks, I had a Ford LGT-145, but no blower for it. Your blower dosn't look to be in too bad of shape. I took mine (Roper blower) completely apart, had a few things welded that were broke, replaced about 1/2 of the fasteners, and painted each item, then re-assembled. About $50.00 in parts and paint, includeing the welding fee, and about two weeks of after hour work.

Welcome to GTT. That was probably made by Gilson so look in the Manuals Section under Ford/Gilson. Many parts are generic. If you have a good NAPA, they will look them up for you. Good Luck, Rick
