Ethan - now we're getting into something. I don't understand what you're saying about the pulley being welded to the shaft. I have to assume you mean it's welded on the main input shaft on the right angle gear box. Even with that the thrower main mounting bracket should disconnect from the tractor. You should be able to release the "Quick Attach" latch and it should slide right off.

Guess we need some close up pics to see what you're talking about.

Also, about the small chain sprocket. One large washer on each side probably isn't enough but at least they should keep the sprocket from chewing into the aluminum sprocket mount bracket.

Ethan, here's A LINK to where I posted some photos and info about using shims to protect the aluminum chain tensioner bracket from wear caused by the thrust of the drive shaft. That's what Hydro is referring to. Click on the link and then scroll way down to the 4th post from the bottom and start reading and working your way up to whee I posted photos of the greasy mess.

Ethan, one more thing, and I'll mention it before Steve Blunier does and I'm even going to use his nicely notated photo, be sure to install the drive shaft with the U-Joints in proper phase. Here's Steve's photo:

Ethan, back before I got the windbreaker cab for my #2 125, I would wear my full face snowmobile helmet when throwing snow. Worked great!
happy.gif
I posted this photo and info of my current snow removal attire back in 2013.

<blockquote><hr size=0><!-quote-!><font size=1>quote:</font>

The snowmobile suit was my fathers, it's from Montgomery Wards from the early 1970's. The leather boots are 1990's vintage Thinsulate insulated from Cabela's. The gloves are just non-insulated leather work gloves from Menard's. If it's real cold I might change up to a pair of insulated work gloves. The hat is a "Stormy Kromer" style insulated buffalo plaid hat with ear flaps that I bought back in the late 1970's at a store that used to be in Stillwater, MN called St. Croix Outfitters" Good thing I don't live in town where people could see me, they might think I'm odd.

You all probably already think (or know...

) I'm odd.

But at least I stay warm and comfy.

Nice work Kraig!

I moved a little snow last night (In cheap Menards flannel lined jeans, if you must know
happy.gif
)and managed to get the cutting edge of the 54" blade STUCK in a sidewalk expansion joint.....so much for being nice and plowing the walking trail!!!! Took a pry bar to get it out!!!

Was angling the blade (knew better than to run down the walk way with it straight), and it dropped into a wide joint just as I swung it through straight on my way from left to right...what timing!!!!! Tripped the blade on the joint and cutting edge dropped deeper and wedged tight.....no wiggling, lifting, etc was moving it!!!

Probably wouldn't have happened on a IH 54", but the cutting edge is very tall on a Haban 54, and I had just flipped it over, so there was plenty of 1/4" thick edge sticking down below the blade frame to hang up.


AND.... for the record......I was not using BRS at the time, just tooling along about 1/2 throttle and 2/3 hydro......

Steve, I bet if you tried to do that again you wouldn't be able to. Do you think it would have skipped right over had you been using BRS? Menard's Flannels? What, no frosty Carhartts?

Ethan, does your QA36 have the shims already? If so, someone either had the same idea I had or they stole my idea.

The Stalk Mounted Lights, aka "SML", were on my #2 125 when I purchased it back around 1993. I don't think I would drill holes into the cast grill to add them but they are nice to have.
