Looking to buy a used snowblower. Friction disk looks good. Problem appears that these 2 gears dont engage each other.

Drive rarely works

Most likely cause is worn bushings. There are bearings and/or bushings in the wheel axle as well as on that reduction gear with the chain. I have found both worn out on my old Ariens and had to replace them.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.
