Noma / Murray Snowblower

HarryP4321February 11, 2011

I recently acquired a Noma snowblower model 627104X8. This is a 27" cut with a 10hp Tecumseh - vintage 1998. Naturally it did not come with a user's manual nor can I find one on the internet.

I am in the process of refurbing it. I would like to drain and replace the auger gearbox lubricant; however I can not find what type is used on this model. I see references to 00 grease, 80-90 SAE gear lube, synthetic oil and SAE 30. Does anyone know what was used originally. To me, it appears to be SAE 30. I'm leery of using anything other than what it was designed for.

Any help will be appreciated. Particularly the lube type and any specific procedures to use. Also any lead to a user's manual.

I have a smaller Craftsman (8.5 hp/24") made by Noma/Murray from around that year.

The manual is here:

You may be able to find an equivalent or similar Craftsman model to the one you have, and use the Craftsman manual.

In the manual for my model, there is a section on Lubrication that says "Hex Shaft and Gears - Hex shaft and gears require no lubrication. All bearings and bushings are lifetime lubricated and require no maintenance."

Harry , Sae Hypoid 80 Grade Gear Oil will suffice . Dextron Automatic Transmission fluid has also been utilized in Extreme Cold Climate's where -40 -50 F temps are routine .

Here is the link to the user manual. Murray didn't even have these any more when I inquired in May 2014. I did send them a copy for future requests.

Here is a link that might be useful: Murray 627104 Snow Thrower
