I cut a new one with my rotary tool. Then welded in the old key way, put the cog on. Then broke the bolt off to help hold the cog on, "(&"$)&@")), welded a nub on the bolt, didn't work, then tried an easy out, didn't work, drilled it and tapped it, put 5/16 bolt in. So that finally got fixed. Now on to the next trouble, I'm going to make. Noel

Looks like a good repair!  :thumbs:  As far as the extra trouble with the broken bolt....we can all usually count on things like that.

Just when we think things are going our direction, something turns the road sign. 

 

When you encounter a twisted off stud like that, weld a nut onto the stub good and solid.  Let it cool down then heat the area on one side of the part where the stud is in and turn the stud out.  Heat it fast and only one side so you don't heat the stud up also.  Learned this from a guy who ran a welding and repair shop.

I would have to walk away from that after bolt snap, think on it awhile, then maybe come back another day to try again. I have very few times that I can keep the drilled hole centered, do don't like to do that. Must have steady hand to grind a key with dremel, mine would be all wallowed out, same as the damaged, heh!  What is this on? Not a GT.  This at your work?  Not just a shaft they could have replaced?

Snowblower for the lgt145 ford. Shaft replacement is nasty. Easier to get new shaft and make an impeller, like I did last year to the other blower, than to put a new shaft in old impeller. Noel.
