They can't get the pulley off so can't remove from the bucket, Hoping my brother doesn't have any issues with his 224, Might have to pull his abart just to never seize the crap out of it before it's a issue.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.

Amazing that there is a forum out there that features the exact obscure problem that i have in detail. removing the impeller! And since the posts were helpful in leading to my solution. I decided to give back and post my solution as to how to get the shaft to sit still, while your trying to get the pulley unscrewed!
After you have separated the front half of the blower from the back half (the motor part of it)and exposed the flywheel... lay the flywheel part flat and put the PB Blaster to it and let it soak in overnight. you have also already removed the shoot from the housing. now you can insert a large pipe wrench down thru the shoot and get the teeth around the shaft right about where that little pin is thru the shaft. the shaft will want to rotate counterclockwise so set the wrench so the teeth will grab when the shaft tries to spin. now heat up the nut on the flywheel with a torch for extra help. get a good sturdy crescent on the flywheel nut and turn it counterclockwise. check that the pipe wrench is locking on the shaft and the shoot will hold that pipe wrench in place for you so you can really pull on the crescent. a few tugs and mine broke free with out busting my knuckles on anything! Amazing. new impeller on order and ill have it back together soon. I tried to hammer my bent impeller flat, and ended up hurting myself so i just ordered a new part.
I took pictures to try to help show how I set the pipe wrench but i cant figure out how to upload pictures here. feel free to email me and ill sent pics to you. [email protected]

Many Thanks to all who have posted!

I find it interesting that in the last 13 months 6 people in this thread have bent the impellers on their Husqvarna's.

make that 8,i have 2 husky's in for repair that have bent up impellers and augers , both have worn out the plastic skids in very low single digit hours that allowed the housing to drag pull off the sheaves, wind them up around both auger and impeller that seem to lock in place to what people are talking about here. what a mess

asking the local ope selling dealer, OH we see it all the time,

Worn out plastic skids on a husky? After 3 seasons my OEM skids still look brand new! Of course it could be the fact that they never got used. Just for fun I made my own skids, and they are still in excellent condition.

yes worn out plastic skids , made my own that look more like 1/4 inch thick snow skis that should need the problem,
dealer wise this one nicknamed rip off don, sells then finds anything he can to not repair under warranty.

It happens all the time up here. Sometimes a piece of gravel gets wedged in there, and sometimes a rock just pops up out of the ground when it freezes, and you don't see it because it's buried under the snow.

Usually it can be bent back into shape with a hammer and/or a Vise-Grip. But the repeated quick-fixes do tend to cause balance problems over times; so every third season, on average, I replace it and keep the old one as a spare that can be used in a pinch. That's actually what I'm doing now, along with replacing the belts, the chute base, the spark plug, and doing other routine maintenance.



I'm taking a break because the new impeller and belts haven't arrived. They should be in today, says USPS tracking. We shall see.

Getting the pulley off is no big deal. Spray the penetrating oil of your choice on the threads, go have a cup of coffee, and then jam something down the chute to block the impeller from moving while you unscrew the pulley.

The other problem people run into is that the shaft forms a little ridge that prevents the impeller from coming off. I just grind the ridge off with a stone in an electric drill or a Dremel. I suppose a file or emery cloth would work, too.

The only serious problem I ever had with my ST-224 was when I stripped the spark plug hole replacing the plug. I'd left it in there too long and it seized. It was an easy fix with a Helicoil once I managed to find one out here in the Middle of Nowhere. But it did involve some cussing.
