I have an 18516-05 Bolens 36" sno-caster (snow blower) that needs another gearbox, gearbox parts, or maybe a complete replacement snow-blower.  I'm in North Idaho but I'm willing to suffer shipping if you have a nice complete snow blower attachment for a tube-frame 1656 / H16 Bolens.

 

Please PM if you have a gearbox, complete snow blower or leads.  :thumbs:

 

Thanks in advance,

Craig

I have an 18516 snocaster that worked fine. I want $100 for it. The bad part is I am in Central Connecticut. I will take some pics tomorrow and post them here. Fastenal would be the cheapest.

I rebuilt the gearbox on mine right after i bought it, the PO ran it without any gear oil. Got the bearings from the local bearing shop and a new set of gears from Ricks Bolens Parts, ie blackjackjakexxix. After replacing all the bearings, including the ones on the auger, it spins like a dream. Cost more than $100, but it was money well spent. if your gears are ok, replacing the bearings and seals is fairly easy and much cheaper. Until i looked at the pictures I had forgotten that I had a broken wrist when I rebuilt this. It took me a while to figure out how to get the self adjusting bearing out, it just turns and then pops out.

Actually sounds pretty interesting.  I'd really like to see pictures.  Is the housing "pooched out" in the middle behind the auger?
