Hey y'all, glad to be aboard. Look forward to chatting with y'all and learning. Had a question, I am trying to restore my hand crank forage I picked up for $75 bucks. I was told it was a Champion but no numbers on it. On the gears inside one has a 16 on it and one has 27. Wondering if someone could tell me any thing about it and if the shafts come out or just clean it best i can with them in it !!! Thanks  20190411_182318.jpg  20190411_194024.jpg

I'm curious too.  I have one that doesn't have a name either.  It doesn't look like that one though.  Mine was sold by sears back in the day.  It may be that yours was the same, a rebranded one sold by a catalogue.

Rule #10;  "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."

Well it looks like a champion. It's corrected may have been sold as a on branded catalog forge. Maybe a catalog seller like Sears or Montgomery wards.
 The best I can tell on my phone from the pictures is it's like the one I've restored. 
 Here's the link to that thread.

If you plan on rebuilding your blower take a look at that thread.

 Especially the part where I pressed out the bushings or bearings. If you don't properly support the housing you risk cracking it.
