I have a Troy-bilt/Bolens snow thrower for my Troy-bilt GTX 16. I need shear bolts 1/4" x 1" grade 5 and 5/16" x 2 1/4". Can't locate any. Does anyone know of a source for these?
Thanks

ebay, Fastenal, or any bolt house should be able to help you. Also JD or CaseIH dealers have bolts.

Walmart, Home Depot, or Lowes should have them too. Make sure that the groves match the inner shaft. Using regular bolts can take out the gears in the auger gear box. Good Luck, Rick

Would you really use a grade 5 for a shear bolt?

 

I didn't know there were shear bolts on my Bolens blower & I took out the input shaft, broke right off inside the housing!
