Sno-Tek has 5 fwd and 3 rev speeds?

You lucky people get to read my first post on this forum.

Just got this machine a week ago, so I guess we won't be getting any snow in RI this year.

After assembly filled with gas all oils checked, I fired it up electric. When I checked the drive I put it in lowest forward speed depressed the clutch handle and much to my surprise it started driving in reverse, duh?

As the drive is initiated through friction wheels, I'm hoping it will just be an adjustment, I haven't messed with it yet.

Has anyone of you had a similar issue?

Thanks

Hey POWERSHIFT93, I did the assembly from the box, but that linkage was hooked up at the factory. I really do not want to take the bottom off of the machine, but I notice that the shaft coming from the hand lever, at the connection point on the machine has a couple of inches of threaded rod beyond the clevis I don't know if "lengthening" the distance from the clevis to the upper lever will get me in the ball park. Thanks for the ALOHA

I pulled up your owners manual on the web and there is an adjustment for the speed selector. Take a look at the manual. If you move the lever to the left one notch does
it go forward?

Zavie, yes it does move forward when I move up to the 2nd notch, and the other notches respectively increases speed as it should. I'll go out later, maybe today, or not but I will check and maybe adjust, just to find out. As we know it is just a friction type drive so it is more than likely an adjustable issue. Thanks.

Well I did go out and make that adjustment, just what the doctor ordered, IF we get snow here in Rhode Island this winter, I'll be ready for it.

Yea, easy fix. It maybe got banged up a bit in shipping and bent the rod? Friction disc transmissions are pretty simple. The only difference between F and R is which side of center it is adjusted to.

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

I hope nothing got bent in there. I really did not want to open up the housing, but after the poor adjustment from the factory, I might open it up just to make sure the internal adjustments have been made correctly or they did not change during shipping.
