Ariens 724 2 stage snowblower

Hi there, Trying to get dug out in Iowa. Had one of my shear pins break. I replaced that with the Ariens one that came with the snowblower. Now though the auger is rubbing against the heads of the carriage bolts below the pillow block on the side I replaced the shear bolt on. All I can think of is that the housing is bent in yet it doesn't appear bent. Spacing at each end of the shafts seems ok & the same on both sides too. Appreciate any advice. Jim

The auger itself is most likely bent. Check the auger blades, especially the ends of them.
