Looking at my incline Alger on my 2366 today has 2100 sep hrs on it. The flighting is pretty thin. How hard do they come out. Should I just put new flighting on it?
Thanks

Getting it out is the easy part. Putting it back in is a little harder, but not really that difficult. We replaced ours last year. It isn't a really hard job, it's just kind of cumbersome.

Replaced ours on the 2144 a couple years ago. Just some basic wrenching. Replace the bearings while you have it apart. We reflighted ours, cheaper than replacement and better than original.

Was also wondering what drives the auger at the bottom. You take the bearing off the top and just pull the auger out?

At the bottom of the auger there is a cover with 4 5/16 bolts holding it on. Remove the cover. Loosen the 4 3/8 bolts that hold the bearing flanges on the bottom of the auger. Take loose the top bearing support. Pull the auger out. The auger is driven by a splined shaft, it will need to be aligned when the new auger goes in.

We bought one made by Loewen and it is very heavily built and was hard faced on the edge. It was also cheaper than OEM. I think we bought it through Sloan Express.
