Hello,is the bearing flange the shaft goes into bolted on or riveted?
It is bolted and can be removed
I have removed it but am unable to get the shaft back in place because there isn't enough space to slide it between shaft and the outer wall of the snow scoop
There is no give in the outer wall to slide it in place
Loosen the other side too so you have more give.
Worst case scenerio would be splitting the case,removing upper bolts from traction frame and loosening bottom two.Then remove the auger pulley and pulling the aguer assy out the front ,then re installing both bearing flanges ,slide back into position and retighten everything.
