I still see a lot of potential from cobble land... If alignment is right and pulley/tension-er can be found or fashioned. The drive lines on Ebay could join power to drive the tines. We can rebuild it... The 6mil dollar snow blower. Because hey, who wants OEM right...lol? All kidding aside, this is designed to retro down to a 300 for real? Looks heavy enough that major back end weight would be needed in any case. Thanks for the up close and personals (parts break down and diagrams) JD318420 always nice to see what it is supposed to look like before the COBBLE begins. Or, in this case before it began. thz71, good luck, I am hopeful and a twitter to see what the gurus suggest because I am interested in what becomes of your project.

Missing parts can be salvaged, just its the proverbial "egg hunt", or you make make you own if you have machinist skills, know a machinist or know of a shop you trust.

I think I have it all figured out. I'll wait to post about it until I'm sure it's going to work. The diagrams were indispensable. Thanks!

Got lucky and found a guy with a 300 series pulley assembly on facebook. The slip yoke from deere and it's the same as a rotary mower. U joint from deere.d963ce828419d7d6f4219dae0537f8d9.jpg the brackets on the bottom must have been extended to fit a bigger tractor because the effectively make it drop down lower. 7d22db841c560fefcfb466b817ee83f6.jpg3dedf68ee6c9c505f600be8880227dab.jpgadf7c757ae6499471230850684e401d1.jpgec3619b6c4c872ebe26cb104204cff22.jpg05c492fb6a96cda034c83eca8c471ea1.jpg cut that booger welded on bracket and painted0054bf888d0d0fdcfa8a5c4889ac62e7.jpg mostly done3545a6e11430b1a134a759f98d9428f9.jpgjust need 2 of these quick connect fittings and it's ready to go.12c916c3f9a1140e5159685c81f226aa.jpgac5eb4b1cf0d58d72af5c7b57f25f48d.jpg Thanks everyone for the help!!!

You plan on mounting this on tractor or selling it as separate piece? If your mounting it on a 300 series I'd suggest a 318, 322 or a 332, anything else it would be a bear to use. They are not called chest freezers for nothing.

I have it listed by itself right now but I have a 332 322 and 316 I could possibly throw it on if it doesn't sell.

I'll see what I can do about getting it on a tractor

Sounds like you are going through a lot of the same pains as I am on my snow blower in the Ariens section. I just haven't quite posted "all" of my headaches just some of them. I'd have been better to drive 2x as far away and paid more to get one that was ready to bolt on and go. As it was I went 3hours 1 way and crossed the cheddar curtain (into Wisconsin) for what I did get... Mine will be practically a brand new machine once done, but it is looking more like an attachment for next year every day.....

Yah sometimes cheap doesn't always turn out to be the best deal

Got the blower on a 318 today when I first got it on it sat like thise05af8ff2333e22b0cc56002287ce3b4.jpg I realized that was due to yet another modification from the previous owner. The top holes had been re drilled farther out. So I moved those back to stock position and all good.4f8da1c3c8dc5522f96da4b4987af0f8.jpg4da40ba354e32e67d606a40a6e0a0592.jpg ended up getting new quick connect fittings and new belt. 318 also took some rewiring to fix Some issues from the PO. I can now lift the rear of the tractor with 1 finger. Definitely need weights and chains.
