Question about Hobart 4346 Meat Grinder Mixer Chopper Extruder
Need to replace bearings and seals on the gearbox shaft which drives the hopper auger. Have opened the cast gearbox and removed the hopper but can't figure out how to pull the shaft (with large drive gear) out of the hopper side of the gearbox casing.
The oil seal is the resistance you feel. take a soft mallet or hammer with a soft drift and gently but firmly tap the stub shaft and it will drive out the oil seal in the hopper direction.The lower skirt of the tapered bearing is what contacts the seal so go slow.
Worked for me.

yes the cast can be welded(brazed). if you are able to weld this yourself, just remember before you can weld it, you have to heat it till it is cherry red then you can weld the piece. if your not qualified to weld it you can usually find a portable welding company to do this for you. hope this helps you please rate the solution...thanks
