    I think my snowblower just broke


    Under load she spews smoke from around the cowl, it has an exhaust and there is preassure coming out.

    This is NOT a good time for a snowblower to break!!

    Re: I think my snowblower just broke

    Could be your head gasket puking oil externally, and said oil getting hot and burning off.

    But you're a bitch who doesn't answer his PMs, so I'm sure thats not it.

    I think it is the head gasket, now back to using it again.

    Chris, you ever going to get a real bike?

    Damn you, I haven't lost any fights yet....

    Define "real bike". I'm currently on the hunt for a Triumph Tiger or similar big off road capable rig. I sold the DRZ.

    Head gasket should be super easy to change - is it a Briggs & Stratton motor?

    Yes it is.

    Anything 600(+)cc inline 4 that can hold up on the race track, where I see you riding.

    Even if I got such a bike, the only time you would see me would when you passed me three or four times a session at a track day. I have given up on sportbikes, I suck at riding them.

    I sucked a melon sized rock into my snowblower and all it did was bent a shaft and slip a belt. "shear" pin my ass.

    *knocks on wood*, I've cleared my driveway with a snowblower for 5 years, and never broken a shear pin.

    Re: I think my snowblower just broke

    Seriously. The thing sheared the wheel drive pin just trying to go up two 6' ramps 1' in elevation into my basement but they don't break when I managed to suck a 15lb rock the size of my squash into the second stage. REALLY NOW!

    Re: I think my snowblower just broke

    Clayton, I hear ya man. Mosta the reason I got the quad set-up with the plow was because I was keeping shear pin manufacturers busy worldwide! Drive wheels too! I made an executive decision on the drive wheel/axle pin though - put a regular 0.17 bolt in there. It WILL snap if it needs to, and there's very little reason for the axle pins to. Badda-BING!

    Wunna the blades on the auger looks like Rocky 17 though. Like you said, it didn't shear when it shoulda. Yet run over an acorn and your replacing pins and hitting the zerks...

    I had a warranty repair, someone during assembly didn't torque a bolt properly, the main auger drive pully began to vibrate & wobble and sheared the keyway. took almost 3 weeks to get a new pulley. the shop where I bought it said they had never seen or even heard of that pulley every having a problem

    an acorn, or a buried chunk of fire wood

    I've sheared 3 pins, the first 2 were the 1st time I used it, the 3rd was when I hit a chunk of wood, the rocks i hit mighta chipped the paint, the 2'stick of oak got tangled pretty good , bent the auger on both sides and the stage 2 impeller

    4 now'

    last night I sheared a bolt on the stage 2 impeller, it doesn't use a special shear bolt, all I hit was snowflakes, musta been already sheared 9/10 of the way
