Cub Cadet 945SWE

Snowblower will start to go forward in forward gear then starts reversing unless your in 4th+ gear. just got the blower a month ago. I tried adjusting the shift link cable (all the way in 6th) and its not overly tight not too loose no change. Removed belly pan the friction wheel moves all the way to the right to outside of the drive plate and in reverse 2 about 1/3 ish to the left side of the drive plate. could this be a worn rubber friction wheel or could something be bent/misaligned?

To me, it sounds like a cable adjustment issue. Follow the instructions in the owners manual.

You want to adjust 1st and reverse. They should each be on different sides of the center of the driving disc. With this done 6th gear should be at the outer edge but not off the disc obviously. The manual should tell you how much and how to adjust. You also want to make sure the friction disc can move smoothly from left to right. Sometimes this necessitates cleaning and re-lubricating the shaft it slides on.

There is usually a spring that pulls opposite the cable that's missing or came loose allowing the friction wheel to drift back towards the reverse side ??

That's why it's always a good idea to store those in sixth gear as it takes the tension off the spring for over summer storage.

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

Thanks Guys Appreciate all the help, I did follow the manual to the letter. Just thinking about it it would be fine if I only engaged the drive lever part way, I'm wondering if when I engage the drive wheel to the friction wheel is loose enough on the shaft that the friction wheel is moving to the left of the drive wheel (reverse side) anyone see that happen? because i know the cable has to be adjusted correctly.

Perhaps it was assembled wrong in the building process. The friction disc may have been mounted cupped in the wrong direction making it land on the wrong part of the drive plate.

Don't know your specific machine but maybe removing the belly pan and the speed selector while looking at it. Even a few good pictures of what things look like will help us hep you.
