problem with shifter yoke

Hi everyone,

My dad and I have the same snowblower. It's a Craftman 944.528394. Here's a link to the user's manual : https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...FBhQ3c4Y2VwZ1k

So this summer I changed both belts and the friction disk on mine. Everything went fine. Last weekend, I did the same on my dad's snowblower and I have a problem I need help with. The friction disk's nuts hit the shifter yoke when spinning. It only happens if the transmission is at the full reverse position or full forward. Here's a video :

Any idea how I can fix this ?

Thanks !

Welcome to the forum!

Your manual link doesn't work, it seems to have been shortened (has a "..." in the middle of the link).

Is it possible that the bolts (and/or friction disk) were installed facing the wrong direction?

I fixed the link thanks for letting me know. No I made sure to reinstall them as they were. Even took picture just to be sure.

I tried to move or delete the other post in the Craftsman forum but couldn't find how.

If it's assembled the same way, and the new parts match the old, then I'd wonder if something is causing more travel on the shift yoke than normal. During the swapover process, was something re-attached in a way that caused the shift lever to move the yoke further than it used to? Something mounted to a different pivot hole, etc.

I believe yours is sibling to Husqvarna St227P.


Did you reinstall E-rings(C-Clips)(812000022 ) on either side of Jack shaft which I believe are your stops.
There should be one on each side.

well there's a way to adjust the travel but at first I didn't touch it. I tried to play with it but it didn't change anything. The friction disk that was sent to me was defective so I will have to swap it next weekend. Maybe it will change something I don't know ...
