The chute on my new to me snowcaster does not rotate freely. Years of grime and surface rust had built up.

Now that it is clean, should I lube the contact area between the chute and the 'caster body?

The coil on the chute control rod also tends to move forward or back depending on cranking rotation and hangs up on the leading tooth that it is trying to engage. A couple of spacers/washers may take the play out and allow the coil to engage in the center of each tooth cut out. Anyone else had this problem?

Thanks,

Joey

I do the same thing Bart does. I took mine off when I painted it last year and ground it completely smooth which helped a ton as well.

Lithium grease works pretty well as it doesn't attract dust and grime like regular grease does.
