John Deere Snowblower Part NEEDED!!

I am in dire need of a pulley for my John Deere Model 726 Snow Blower. It is the auger pulley and has a JD OEM Part # of AM105653. This pulley also fits many other models of John Deere Snow blowers but I can't find it and John Deere Parts no longer carries it. HELP!!!!! Thanks so much for reading...

can you post the model number of the snowblower? It may have been made by Ariens. Also, if you measure the diameter of the pulley and the hole sizes, you may be able to find an aftermarket one. Might also help if you can post pic of the snow blower and of the pulley.

According to the John Deere Parts Catalog web site. The pulley you are looking for is on all of the following models 526, 726, 732, 826, 832, and 1032.

http://www.jdparts.com

I would keep an eye on craigslist for any of these models where someone is selling it off for parts or otherwise not functioning. Considering the age of the unit you should be able to find something for cheap.

Good Luck
Steve

Still looking for pulley for John Deere Snowblower Model 726

Thanks for the messages below...I am sorry, I was following the part on Ebay and got outbid at the last moment. Not good.

Any further assistance would be much appreciated.

Thanks again.

I would suggest start looking for pulley dealers and distributers, JD probably didn't make the pulley, you ust need one with the proper dimensions, it could be from many applications. Have a good one. Geo

ya thanks, I've looked everywhere for the used part. It is not a standard pulley. Airens made it but they were of no assistance. John Deere corporate was of no assistance.

The pulley

Exactly what went wrong with the pulley? Many times if the damage isn't too great they can be repaired, welded, streightened, etc, just some thoughts.

My local JD dealer says you should be able to get the part from JD as it does not show as being discontinued. AM105653 is the replacement for AM33141 and AM103651. Have a good one. Geo

The JD Part # of AM105653 was told to me to be discontinued years ago by the JD dealer. If you can get it or have a JD dealer agree that they have it or can get it, please let me know ASAP. I do not have the original pulley as it was lost during moving and re-assembly. A widowed ladies husband tore it apart to repair the snowblower and then he became sick and passed away. I am trying to help this lady out by fixing the old unit. But, her husband apparently removed the old pulley and now we can't find it...hence my attempts to find a replacement one. She does not have the funds to purchase a new one so I'm doing this voluntarily. She's a nice lady and could use a hand during these tough times. Anyway, if someone could locate this part, I(we) would be most grateful....

Deere's parts web site shows it as not being available, despite the fact that this part was used on over a dozen different machines, including the 316 and 318 tractor. My guess is you will have to search Ebay for one.

Still Looking for John Deere Snowblower part

I am still looking for a John Deere Snowblower Part. I've had no luck on Ebay or Craigslist looking for this pulley or a similar unit for parts.

This pulley also fits many other models of John Deere Snow blowers but I can't find it and John Deere Parts no longer carries it. HELP!!!!! Thanks so much for reading...

The pully

Could someone have grabbed the pully for a go cart or a scooter?
Don't give up, check every JD dealer you can, one of them may have a broken down model that would have the pully you are looking for. There is a dealer near me, that I will check this week just to see what might be, also there are lots of lawn mower shops along the country side that might be worth checking. If you have the dementions for this pully, try googeling "pullys & shives" and see what you can find. It's too good a machine to give up on, too bad JD doesn't agree.

Wow, someone else in the same situation I was in! Unfortunately, I had the sheave, I just wrecked it trying to get it off the shaft (with a puller) so that I could straighten out the impeller blades. For the John Deere purists, good luck finding the am105653 sheave. Otherwise, look for TB Woods part # AK841. I just put it on and it seems to be a direct replacement. It is a heavy (4.2 lbs) cast iron sheave with a gray primer finish. I ordered a replacement belt from john deere and it fits this sheave perfectly. The cheapest place I found the sheave was zorotools.com (ya, I had never heard of it). Sheave came quickly and was a genuine TB Woods sheave. $22 wasn't too bad either. Key slot is identical. I had to lightly file the slot because the new john deere key (go to the hardware store, it's cheaper) was fitting so darn tight I would have had to beat the sheave on. It comes with a allen set screw rather than the square head bolt with the jam nut. Use some blue thread lock for the allen set screw to keep it in there.

Hope this helps you all and others randomly searching for am105653!

Iowa wrench, THANK YOU for finding a decently priced replacement part. And it is a significant upgrade in quality vs. the sheet steel original.

The pulley

Thats the way we used to make everything, to LAST. It's a shame
how things are made now. You could sell it when the JD dies.

i'm not old enough to speak for the way things used to be made, but I can say today's engineers have no excuses for churning out crap. working on this early 80's snowblower, i can see so many ways they had to fudge/hand fab/weld and even torch stuff that they did due to the absence of modern precision CAD and manufacturing processes that my generation has right at our fingertips. i'll tip my hat to old fashioned craftsmanship any day of the week. it doesn't take much looking to find some old steel bridge or something that completely blows my mind considering they had no computers/CAD/calculators even.

Thank YOU

I have experienced the same problem with my JD1032 and the mechanics were at a loss. Thank you so much for the info because I am not in a position to replace the machine and it functions perfectly otherwise. It would be a shame to scrap a great piece of equipment due to the inability to find one simple part. We recieved 300" of snow this year with more coming so .....again, thanks.

Very glad that sheave find is helping others. For what it's worth, 2 years of blowing snow without any issues. The new belt sheave is working just fine.

That was exactly what the old JD 826 Needed to bring it back to life. Exact pulley
