I have a 13.5 horsepower husky snowblower that I am not

Customer Question
I have a 13.5...

I have a 13.5 horsepower husky snowblower that I am not happy with. The shaft on the right side of the shoot comes out from the side and the rep at the place I bought it from said he knows of no fix for it. Can you advise, is there a fix?

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

It has happened 3 times and the company puts it back in and says lets see how long that lasts.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

It is an 1130sb-LS. I can do it on my phone and send it to your phone number. Just sent them via phone, did you get them?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

There is an attaching icon next to the typing box, a tree or a paperclip icon. You have to use it.

Did you get the pictures of snowblower chute and model number?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

I see no pictures, but here is a parts link, I can't identify any shafts associated with the chute. Can you pick out the part?
