It'll be used on gravel (3/8" chips)! I've used a 37A for several years with god results. Does throw some grave too though, just have to keep the runners down! Helps if the drive is frozen.
This one will go on the 314, have a 54, 4-way blade for the 420~~ grnspot

Had to adjust the drive pulley, it had more than a 1/4" of wobble! Tried a rubber dead-blow mallet first, with no results, so then I broke out the 3# hammer & wood block, no more wobble! Pulley was also missing the key, replaced it & the missing set screw in the auger sprocket.

Got most of the paint & rust cleaned off the shell today, still a ways to go;

Looking good. I love to 'tweak' things with the hammer. Keep on posting, I might learn a bit about blowers.

Looks good Grnspot. I recently painted my 54 blade. I primed a large bare spot with Tremclad (Rustoleum) grey primer then sprayed it with Yellow. The yellow wore off where the primer was after the first plow session. It seems like it didn't adhere to the primer. On the rest of the blade, which I only sanded before painting, the paint stayed on OK! Just one of those things I guess. I hope yours holds up better!

Looks good to me! What do you plan for the inside of the chute? It doesn't look painted in there yet. When you put it back together, can you name the parts so I can get more of an idea of what is what? I haven't even seen a blower in real life.

The chute is coated with EZ-Slide, a graphite-based paint!

It worked well for me on the 37A I had before this one! ~~ grnspot

Finished the blower up today, at least until I get the tractor ready:

Auger in; HPIM2232 (640x478).jpg

Drive & lift mechanism on; HPIM2233 (640x478).jpg

Put the chute together & installed, drift cutters on; HPIM2234 (640x478).jpg

With the electric actuator for spout control; HPIM2235 (640x478).jpg

Installed the decals & moved it out of the shop around 5 pm; HPIM2237 (640x478).jpg

The chute control rod will go on later, when I get the 314 ready. Need to change fluids, & install the cab on it yet! ~~ grnspot
