Q:

correct snow blower gear case gear replacement part 536.881113

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

This is a manufacturer substitution. The worm gear may differ in appearance but is a functional equivalent to prior parts including 53732. The image shown in Sears Parts is just a image of a worm gear and it was likely an image of the original and the substitute. Just because it is not brass does not mean it's not a soft metal. Grease is also needed in the gearcase so I do not believe the new worm gear will cause in prematurely failure to the other gear. Just be sure to grease up the gear case and it should be fine.

Joey! Thank You for your reply. A file test on the replacement gear indicates it pretty hard, I'm going to have it Rockwell "C" scale tested just to be sure. It's hard to get past my reluctance to put two steel worm gears together unless one is sufficiently softer. Although Lubriplate grease is recommended, most literature indicates otherwise for steel to steel but it may be the only option as the case is not well designed for an oil. Thanks again and I'll let you know the results. Respectfully, Don

Thank you for your question. Removing the auger assembly on a snow blower is not an easy repair that is usually done by a service technician. If you decide to repair the blower yourself, please follow the steps below. *Remove the spark plug wire and belt cover. *Disconnect the chute control rod. *Remove the belt and the auger control cable if it is attached to the blower head. *Locate and remove the bolts that attach the blower head to the drive assembly. *Once the blower head is removed tip it onto the nose so the pulley is up.  *Remove the pulley from the shaft. It should have a setscrew on the backside, maybe two. I recommend spraying the shaft and pulley with a penetrating oil to help with removal. I have seen in some cases a puller is needed to remove the pulley because of rust. Some models have a bolt in the center securing it. Remove the bolt and the pulley will come off. Then remove the pulley adapter. You might need a puller to remove it depending on the amount of rust.   *Once the pulley is removed you can remove the bolts securing the bearing. Then slide the bearing off the shaft. This can be difficult to do if the shaft is rusted. I recommend cleaning the shaft with emery cloth before trying to move the bearing. You might also need to use a puller here also.  *Remove the bolts securing the bearing for the left and right auger shaft. Then slide the whole assembly out of the blower housing.  *Remove the shear bolts and remove the augers. Make sure to mark the augers left and right so you do not get them mixed up. If they are reversed, the snow will not be pulled into the impeller. Most of the time I fine the augers are rusted to the shaft so you might need to spray it down with penetrating oil and let it sit over night. If they do not come off you may have to heat them up to break them loose. *Once the augers are removed you can split the gear case and replace the auger shaft. *Make sure to clean all the old grease out of the case and repack it with high quality grease.   *Just reverse the above steps to reassemble the snow blower.  I have found a video that should give you a little more confidence in doing the repair.
