    Trying to get the mount/drive section of ST done today. Photo shows what work bench normally looks like. Not cleaned up and parts staged like I normally photo.

    This will be finished tonight but will not publish more photos until paint is dry tomorrow.

    I had difficulty removing the locking collar on the driveshaft bearing. It finally came loose; in my opinion the collar was not installed correctly. The gear spins clockwise looking from gear box end of shaft. Locking collar should be locked counterclockwise rotation (ccw). CCW rotation unlocked the collar. What is correct installation of locking collar?

    Eccentric locking ring! This will probably be justifiably argued in favor of each direction. I ALWAYS lock the ring clockwise, when locking at ring and bearing behind it. I then let the setscrew do its job. If it did not have a setscrew, that's a whole different ballgame, but it does have a setscrew. 10 years down the road when I need to remove it again, I don't have to say, 'This shaft is driven by that gear this way, and that's driven by...and on and on!' Lefty loosey, done!

    If the collar is installed the "wrong way" and the collar was installed TIGHT, and the setscrew was installed TIGHT, and the collar is now loose, that means the bearing has seized...so you'll want the collar loose/off anyhow!

    Just my logic, Bob

    Sorry members. Took Laurie out for Valentine's breakfast. Then grocery shopping; then home for a day of rest. Tomorrow morning is breakfast for JD retiree group and Laurie has doctors appointment tomorrow afternoon so I will not be going to work on shop at rural property. Will get you some more photos tomorrow between errands.

    Yesterday had to shovel 4" of wet heavy snow to finish off my busy day.

    Here is the status after today.
    • Mounting bracket and drive assembly is fully reassembled.
    • The assembly was mounted on the front of my 1983 318 project tractor to set location of the drive pulley on the model 49.
    • The assembly was then mounted to the snow thrower shell. The driveshaft was installed and original pulley temporarily placed on auger shaft.

    I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Work left to do.
    • I need to transfer chain drive components between the two model 49's I have.
    • Cleanup, sand, and paint standard and tall chutes,
    • mechanical chute rotate mechanism
    • and center bracket in front of chute.
    • Install all the above parts
    • Install auger paddles.
    • Finish up work ... decals and s/n plate

    I need to go back and look at money I spent restoring this ST. There are some new parts I put on this model 49 that I will remove and replace with parts from model 49 I got from Rick. This will allow me to reduce asking price for this model 49. I will still have the parts to reinstall if potential buyer is willing to pay for the new parts. I cannot and will not charge for my labor to do this restoration ... Gabby

    Work on ST has slowed again as I have been working on new storage building. Will try to get one short chute and center bracket painted this weekend.
