The shoot wheel is engaging just fine (and the belts are fine as well) the auger blades will not move. they seem to be locked. Everything else works as it should.

Hello, when you turn the impeller does the shaft going to the auger gear box turn?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it does. The response took longer than I expected (needed to fix the snowblower asap to dig myself out after the major snow storm) so I had to trouble shoot the issue. Turns out the gear box needs to be replaced. At this time I will not need the assistance with the understanding that I do not owe any $$ since I did not receive a resolution.
