Not sure if this is the correct forum--  We have an old '74 or so Cub Cadet # 265 26" Snow Blower.  I understand these were built by Ariens, along the lines of their 10000 series units.

  Looking for some insight to getting the blower shaft out.  The cast clutch engagement sliding dog on the blower shaft input is frozen on the splined drive (fan and gearbox) shaft.  We used penetrating oil, put heat to it, and tried tapping and prying at the same time.  Doesn't budge.  Really -- this is not my first time "mechanic-ing"  just want to error on the side of someone else's experience when dealing with non-findable parts!!

  Hate to put a puller on it and break it.....Anybody got any experience with these as to how sturdy the casting is?  Would like to put a puller on it with heat, and some physical encouragement  but don't want to break it.

  Thanks!

Sounds like a walk-behind blower, but not sure.

I have always had good luck using a torch to heat it up not quite red hot and pouring cold water over it. The thermal shock usually will break up the rust binding it together. Once it is cool give it a shot of penetrating oil. I myself use kroil. It is by far the best penetrating oil on the market. Good luck.

He is dealing with a walk behind blower. CC never made a model 265 blower attachment.

Good Morning,   Thanks for the replies.  Yes, it is a walk-behind.

  Appreciate the tip on the cold water shock.  Kroil seems to work the best of different products I've used over the years.  Heating with a hand-held torch on MAP gas, hope I can get enough heat into it before the shaft gets real hot too.
