  1. This is just a follow up to this post in case someone came here looking for information on how to resolve this same issue. The only way I was able to get this fan off was to go to auto zone and rent a gear puller: - You will need to get the five (5) ton gear puller and swap it to using two jaws instead of three, the two ton puller is too small. (you may have to play with the adjustments in order to get the jaws to fit around the bushing) - The center screw will be too large to sit directly on the fan shaft so get a 1/2" to 3/8" socket wrench drive adapter and put an allen wrench attachment on it that fits the full width of the fan shaft. The center screw of the gear puller should sit in the 1/2" drive adapter perfectly. - The jaws of the gear puller will want to slip off the back of the fan bushing when you start applying pressure so I used a bar clamp to keep them on. Please note that this is a last resort, I recommend just sticking with wd40 if at all possible.
  2. Looks like I have some work to do on that shaft, I'll probably fiddle with it tomorrow afternoon or on sunday. I'll follow up on this thread and let you know how it goes. Thanks again Mars. P.S. After seeing yours I may have to paint mine after I'm done with repairs, looks good.
  3. Thanks for the video Mars, looks like you've got it running good. Looking at where the shaft goes through the fan on yours and mine (first picture I posted) it looks like someone beat on mine with a hammer. Any thoughts on what I should do about it? I'm thinking file off the peened edges and replace that set screw with new hardware if it doesn't hold. Judging by how mine sounds I need to take a look at the bearings. Any tips?
  4. Howdy, I recently picked up a champion blower and was wondering if anyone had some information on the model and how to tear it down. I took it apart today to do a little cleaning but I couldn't get the fan off and the slotted screws inside the cover were frozen solid (letting some penetrating oil work on them tonight). Please correct me if I'm wrong but it looks like someone peened the shaft over the fan (won't move with set screw taken out). Any info would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
