Question about Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
8/26 2 stage need to remove the auger assembly off of shaft, so I can weld the chute thrower back on. Have gear case in middle, but will not come off. I removed the shear pin and bolts holding gears together
Shearbolt is located at #54 in this diagram.
It may be hard to spot on the auger shaft as it may have sheared flush with the holes so look close. You may also need to remove the part of the bolt remaning inside the shaft.

sure sounds like a shear pin, usually one end will be missing if it is broke. They are simple to replace but get one that is rated for your machine to avoid damage. Can you turn it freely without the engine running?? if so, it's the shear pin

The oil leak normaly would make the 'friction disc' inside the frame slip so as to not drive the axle.
Locate the oil leak
#1 engine crankshaft seal
#2 engine crankcase cover gasket
#3 engine overfull so that the excess oil is coming out of the crankcase breather tube and running down inside the frame

Hi, The blower spins at full speed? If it does the belt, pulley, and shaft are good. Look at the shaft from the fan to the gear box while it's running and that shaft should be turning at the speed of the fan.
If the blower spins at full speed and the auger doesn't the most likely problem is the worm gear transmission from the blower shaft to the auger shaft.
A good way to visually inspect this is: With the machine turned off and the spark plug wire unhooked go to the front and try to rotate the auger by hand. If the gear box is good you will only be able to move the auger less than an inch. If the box is bad you will be able to move the auger a lot farther. While you are there recheck your shear pins.
You can also remove the blower drive belt and have someone turn the pulley by hand while you watch the auger. Put resistance on the auger with your gloved hand. If the box is good the auger will move smoothly in you hand. If it is bad, it will ****, move roughly, or stop.
While the other person is turning the pulley and you have some resistance on the auger look closely at the shaft running from the gearbox back to the blower. On some models there is a connecting sleeve and the roll pin that connects the sleeve to the shaft and gearbox will break.
If the gearbox is bad, it will have to be replaced as a complete unit.

Testimonial: "Have not tried the trouble shooting steps yet. I does make sense to me and will try them when I get home. Hope it works. Getting a lot of snow."
It is belt driven, the belt is located between the chute and the engine behind the inspection cover some have it on the top and some on the bottom.That model may have to be split in half to get the belt past the shaft.But regardless it can at least be inspected by taking the cover off.Please let me know if this helps
