    Default Snow blower harness bolts loose

    I was looking around my meteor snow blower the other day and found all 4 bolts that hold the harness onto the front frame of the tractor were loose, real loose. I re-tightened them to 150f/lbs. has anybody else had this problem? What was your solution?

    Never had this problem. I would put some thread locker on it to prevent them from coming loose again.

    I torqued them to 150lbs/ft. Sometime in the summer, I will make up spacer blocks to take up the difference between the frame and the harness and also threaded blocks for the back side in place of the existing nuts. I am also looking for 16mm bolts in Grade 12. Those I can torque to 265 lbs/ft.

    Same here...

    Snow blower harness bolts loose-gr1p-gifThey do need to be check. I usually put then back with blue Loktite. There are a lot of vibrations... Even the plunger that holds the bearing in place will come loose (first stage)... They are real nice at first, but they do need our attention... Ah! I wish I had one of those commercial one's sometime... http://www.pronovost.qc.ca/pdf/Prono...nowblowers.pdf
