Just broken shear pins from time to time on the snowblower
Order shear pin and cotter pin. Line up the holes on the auger and the axle. Inert the shear pin through the auger and axle, secure the shear pin by placing the cotter pin in the hole of the shear pin.
I ordered extra of both of these parts, because they do have a habit of breaking. But they do save the snowblower from damage.

shear pin gone and the shave plate was worn out
Shear pin was just replaced. Pliers required to insert cotter pin to secure in place.

The shave plate was worn out and thus required either a wrench set or socket set to remove the bolts holding the plate on. Once removed the new plate was installed by using the old bolts to reattach the plate. takes about 30 min if experienced or about 45 if not familiar with this type of job.
