Well, got my chains on and blower working (42" single stage) only to then pick up a rock... Bad, bad jam in the auger. I cleared the jam, but now the main drive shaft (that runs right-to-left and is powered by the PTO) spins but does not turn the chain pulley wheel. I took off the chain cover and see there are two allen head type set screws that appear to attach the top chain sprocket mechanism to the shaft.

When I look in the parts manual, the two parts I am looking at are:

Part 3246-2 set screw
937089 – Key Woodruff

I tried to tighten the allen head bolts, but they are tight. Did my key woodruff shear off? Or, what else might be broken? Also, any suggestions for locating replacement parts?

Many thanks (again!) for all the help...

The 937089 Woodruff key is more commonly known as a #9 Woodruff key. The size is 3/16" x 3/4" but that is not the actual length of the key. The 3/16" is correct and actual length is .740". I am not a machinst but believe the 3/4" is the diameter of the cutter used to cut the slot in the shaft.
A good hardware or industrial supply will have the key.
Hope that is all that is wrong and actually a good part to have fail.

Thanks so much Garry! Greatly appreciated, as I would not have known what to look for as the replacement... Thanks!
