37a snowthrower

James Francis I recently bought an old 37a snowthrower and have begun to evaluate the moving parts for wear. It seems as though all of the bushings and bearings are in decent shape but the auger seems to bind up when it is spun by hand (removed from the machine with no belts attached) Does anyone have experience with a 37a and is yours difficult to spin? Could it be the chain or perhaps the chain sprocket that is slighty not true? Or it is it just normal to be difficult to spin by hand?


Jon James,
Just went thru this w/ a Model 49 thrower. I'd take the side cover off and check the chain for 'tight' links-that was the problem on mine. One way of seeing if it's the chain is to look at the position of the auger when it binds-if it keeps changing, it's the chain. If it's always at the same rotation point, it's probably something in the bearings or hitting the housing.
Jon

James Francis Thanks for the suggestion. Did you end up replacing your chain?
