I've been watching this forum for a while and have learned a lot. I have recently picked up a '74 LGT165 and a Single Stage Thrower (09JC9795). I'm looking to remove the Auger so I can restore. I'm looking for advise on removing the Auger Shaft Bearing Assembly.

Welcome to GTT. Try our Manuals Section for the info that you need. This might have the correct info  http://gardentractor...ge-snow-blower/   it sees like you need to remove the chain guard first.  Good Luck, Rick

Thanks for the suggestion Rick. I was able to download the manual and also a parts list earlier today. I removed the chain guards and the chain. I've removed the three bearing nuts but the bearings are pressed onto the auger shaft. My thought is to hammer the shaft about 1/4 inch and then get a puller under the bearing to remove one side at a time. Not sure if this is the best method.

Front panels are also removed to repair one of the supports.

There are set screws on the flange of those bearings, in that little hole in the picture. Loosen them, lube up the shaft well with PT Blaster and you should be able to get the bearing off quite easily.

Be careful trying to get the auger off. I am repairing an old Jacobsen snow blower similar to this one. If you strip a nut of a screw you it is next to impossible to get off. Some of the parts on the snowblower they do not make anymore, so be carful not to loose of damage any parts. Hope everything goes ok for you. That is a nice find and it is nice that you are taking the time to fix it up!

Don't even try and use a hammer to bang shaft thru bearing, u will spread the steel shat into tge bearing. Dont try and use a bearing puller unless u can contact the inner race of the bearing. If u pull on the outter bearing race u will damage the inner race ways. Use a condenser fan hvac puller that will secure to the out side flange with the set screws and the puller has a center bolt that will hit the shat and pull the bearing off with out damaging the bearing. Good luck
