I purchased a used snowcaster that is complete but in parts. I tore it all down, sandblasted it and painted it. I am in the process of putting it back together but have a question with the chute control (to make the chute turn). I have the screw part that has a straight pin running through it. I pulled the pin out and put the screw between the 2 brackets on the snowcaster frame and put back in the pin. However when i attach the handle to it and turn it the pin through the screw just spins as well and doesnt turn the chute? am i missing a piece? What prevents the pin in the screw from just spinning in place?

Mark,
Thanks for the response. I have the L80 snowcaster and I have that parts guide but still cant figure out what stops the chute control rod from just spinning in place in the coil. The pin they show prvents the rod from slipping out. Is there another pin that i need?

I have a newer snowcaster the SB42 on an ingersoll. It has a different setup. I am looking at the assembly drawing on the link I sent and from what I see it looks like the cotter pin should lock everything together. I wish I could be of more help, but I am not familar with this setup. I am sure one of the experts will jump in and give you some advise.

The cotter pin does not only keep the rod from slipping out, it goes through the rod and the flat bar portion of the coil, fastening them together. Look at the flat portion of the "stirrup" the coil is welded to, and you will see a small hole that the cotter pin goes through. If my description doesn't help, I can take a picture for you, but that will have to wait until tomorrow night.

Edit: Beat to the punch by wurkenman! :sidelaugh:

I see it now! i was pushing the rod all the way through the bracket and putting the cotter pin to the outside of the bracket on the caster causing it to just spin and place and not turn anything. Thanks for all your help!
