Ford two phase snowblower rebuilt
Posted January 19, 2018 - 09:07 PM
This is my first post on the GT talk forum so I hope that I am in the right place to submit my question.
First I want to thank all the GT talk community members for sharing this huge amount information, I was able to find a lot of answers to my questions that helped me fix my Ford LGT 165 open side.
My LGT165 came equipped with a 60 inch front blade and a two stage Ford snowblower product number 59805.
The snowblower is not in working condition, all the bearings and sprockets where abused and the chains where rusted and jammed for sitting outside for years not protected from the elements.
I proceded to disasemble the snowblower,
while doing so I noticed it was repaired at some point in its life and some of the sprocket where replaced.
I do have all the Jake pn but I was not able to find the sprockets tooth count anywhere, some of them seem to have been replaced at some point but I suspect that some of them may not have the right number of tooth.
I was wondering if this information was available somewhere or if someone on the forum knew the sprockets tooth count?
The sprockets presently on the snowblower are as follow.
The big auger sprocket has 80 tooth, the double sprocket is 34 tooth and 12 tooth, the sprocket on the small shaft in the back is 14 tooth.
On the second phase side which I call the fan,
the sprocket in the center (fan shaft)has 15 tooth and the other one on the left side attached to the 90 degrees gear box has 18 tooth.
I tried to make this as clear as I could, hopefully You can make sense out of my sprocket description.
Than you in advance for any information.

Welcome to GTT. You have a great tractor there. I have an LGT 120, an LGT 125, an LGT 145, and a Jacobsen 12 hp parts tractor. I don't know the answers to your questions. I suggest that you look at the manuals in the Manuals Section. Pics will help us understand your questions and we like pics. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to the forum! Don't need a snowblower down here, so I'm no help. Hopefully the folks will find your answers.

Auger 102, give or take a tooth.
Double. 34 and 12
Impeller fan. 22
Gear box. 20
Now the impeller fan and gear box sprockets are not original. I been playing with sprocket sizes on those two, and that seems to work well for me.
I would say the auger sprocket on yours would make the auger turn faster than mine, but that’s not a bad thing.
Our blower numbers are a little different, and I don’t know what difference there would be in them.
