Hope you have som answers to my questions of parts for Jacobsen GT42 inch Snow Thrower 59794 for Jacobsen GT16 (Homelite, Ford)

I have to weld Liftarm and find "balance spring" for Snowthrower

1.
what is the purpose of nr1 (45) "balance spring" ?
is it for push up or push down or what....

2.
Where on GT16 will this Fork nr2 on Liftarm be placed ?
Should it be placed on 2A or 2B or what ?

3.
If Liftarm shold be placed on 2A that is static, how can the Snowthrower be lifted up and down then ?

(1) all the two springs do is hold the blower houseing from falling forward and it acts sort of like a trip action , (2) if you look closely at the lift arm you will see that theres a latch on one end and the other end bolts to the blower houseing , the lift arm latchs onto 2A , (3) the lift arm is just ment to be attached and pivot on 2A , up front on the lift carrage which is on the tractor theres a round rod , its right below the front axle , then the lift arm sits on that rod and when the lift carrage is lifted the rod is in turn lifted and then blower arm is in turn lifted , (4) i would attach the spring to A and the attach the other end of the spring to the left side of the frame , you might have to drill a small hole in the frame but i would think it would work fine , tech speaking mode off:bigrofl:

Lift arm latch 3A is connected to 2A rod under tractor

When huydralic is lifting up "Mowing Deck Carriage" 3B it also make front of "Liftarm" 3C to lift Snow Thrower

Is this correct ?

Hi "Ford boy"

Do you mean around "C" in this picture ?
spring_pulley_IMG_1362C

When you wrote "....attach the other end of the spring to the left side of the frame"

I am not shore if you mean Left side of tractor or Left side in that picture !


Can you please take a picture of how your PTO looks like with original spring around pivot arm.


Best regards

sorry for the late reply , unfortunately my snow blower pto setup is missing some parts too , but i managed to find a thread on another forum with a photo of where the spring should mount on the frame its the 3rd photo down from the top , also that photo was taken from the left side of the tractor as you sit on the tractor , the other end of the spring mounts in hole A in your photo , granted this pto setup is a little different then yours and mine but i thought it might show you how the spring go's , FORD LGT 42" Single & Dual stage Snow Thrower info - MyTractorForum.com - The Friendliest Tractor Forum and Best Place for Tractor Information sorry i can't help more right now , but i will look around and see if i can find any other pictures for you

I just purchased a snowblower online and then discovered that the lift arm is missing. Would you consider sending me the dimentions or drawing for the one you made. I will try to have one made localy.
Thanks for your help.
