    Fitted the new bearings and cleaned out the axle tube, greased the axle shaft and put some oil in the tube just enough to coat the bear metal bits for protection then assembled it. The auger runs nice on new bearings.

    Had a look at the flag this morning ( that's the bit that fits to the lift arm ) I had to replace the pin as its a bit rusty.

    I sprayed it with 2k but horrible thing to paint especially the auger. Some of the metal is pitted and it didn't seem worth spending lots of time pugging it up to stick it into snow drifts so I just wanted to protect it against the eliments more than anything.

    Got the auger and axle, wheel brackets and wheels clean and shiny today and applied a few coats of red primer.

    Had a look at getting the first part assembled today. The bolts that hold the wheels on were the first thing to do, one missing and one snapped a little warm up with the gas torch and the bit came out I then ran a 3/8 tap through the hole and found a couple of bolts in stock from an old mower deck. I now have enough to get the Auger fitted and on wheels, might give it a coat of paint first.
