I was wondering if I could tap some of the great knowledge that is on this sight and clear up something for me. I have included a picture if the rotor bearing assembly of my QA42 snow blower/thrower. The picture shows the rotor sprocket and shaft, a bushing, the collar that holds the bearing on bushing and the bearing.
My question is. The bearing collar is held on the bushing by a set screw but there is nothing that holds the bushing to the shaft. When I took the rotor off of the housing, the bearing, collar and bushing was loose and could be moved easily. I am not sure if this is good, bad or makes no difference.
Any comments appreciated.
