    Default does this look correct? (54 snowblower)

    Greetings,

    I was cleaning up my 54 snowblower and notice something that doesn稚 look quite right.

    I am referring to the twisted wire in the following pictures.

    Appears as though it could be a safety wire, but is that really how JD would do it?

    Just seems odd.

    TIA

    The wire is green.

    It looks like the picture was taken on the showroom floor ?

    Or did you just buy it and looking it over for the first time ?

    Edit; Totally over looked your very first sentence. Sorry.

    If your dealer delivered it in this condition I'd be upset.

    Supposed to be a bolt in place of that wire.

    Must be a splined shaft ?

    oh, I see.

    no, I bought it last April and used it like that all winter. we had a lot of snow here in Minnesota, so it saw a lot of use.

    it is in my garage.

    I was just getting ready to wash the salt off it and grease the universal joints on the shaft and auger before I put it away for the summer when I saw it.

    it was never on the show floor, I saw it in the box with my name on it in the shop, along with the mower deck that was in a plastic molded container.

    thanks

    That is the way it's supposed to be...you have to watch out for all of the dis-information on these forums. Check out the diagrams on JD parts. My 47 snow blower is the same way. There should be a roll pin in there, and the wire through the roll pin...no bolt.

    EXACTLY !! looked more closely, and there is a roll pin that the wire goes through.

    Thank you for the help.
