I have two 10000 series snowblowers that move in NEUTRAL

It appears to be the case because the friction wheel sporadically makes contact with the drive wheel, causing it to move (albeit slowly). I can't quite figure out what needs to be lubricated.

Sometimes, if I play with the clutch handle, it frees up. But I need this to be reliable because it will be a safety hazard.

As the friction wheel makes contact, I also cannot move the snowblowers around unless I engage the clutch. Any thoughts? Thank you.

Any chance you're missing a spring that holds the friction disc away from the drive plate when it's not engaged ??

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I would guess the friction disc clutch rod spring as well, or maybe an adjustment on the lower swivel ball on the end of the clutch rod as well, or even a very bad friction disc in need of replacing (possible bad cracks, bonding agent separated from rubber to disc, etc)

Heck, it could be a lot, a quick look inside after removing the lower gear cover should tell you.

wow... this forum is great. not only did a moderator correct my typo, i had multiple people offer advice. On a football Sunday, no less!

in the end, both machines ended up needing an adjustment on the clutch rod. Both machines appear to be all set.

Sorry to revisit this again... I was able to get one of the two shifting 100% where it no longer creeps in Neutral (the friction disk never touches the drive wheel), but the other one has trouble about 25% of the time. I can usually reproduce it when shifting from 1 to N or from R to N. I've taken some photos which I've uploaded here

Can anyone tell me which areas need to be cleaned up and/or lubed? Thank you.

Every moving part or a part that another part articulates with should be lubed. The hex shaft that the thrust bearing moves axial on should be lubed up as well. Make sure you don't have any bad bearings for the friction plate rod. The service manual from Ariens has a nice diagram that shows points that should be greased/lubed with oil. Good luck!

From the pictures I see to first use some grease on your hexagonal shaft and on your chains as well, remember it doesn't need much so it splashes around and you might want to clean the disk wheel with a rag with gas and as well clean the friction disk rubber but do the latter as last. Good Luck
