I Forge Iron

broken buffalo forge blower


Recommended Posts

Thrust washer? If a bearing will fit there, then see if you can find a bearing that will fit the space. Otherwise, you might try buying or making a brass washer that could serve to hold the shaft in place and also act as a bearing surface.

I am afraid that buffalo forge no longer is in business.

ok..well i got a nylon washer and made it fit in the blower!

the only proplem i can find is that the blower is a little harder to turn...any way to fine tune this?

i painted it up and it looks all new

The first three pics are the newly painted blower and the last is the before pic

Probably your washer is a hair or two too thick. you will either need to shave/sand a little off or get a thinner washer. If the surface is rough when you are done, install with this side towards the non rotating part. Another possible solution (if it can be done on this model) is to install a thicker gasket between the case and cover.

Nice find,

Rich C.
