poulan 9hp steering issue

I have a 9hp Poulan model # PP927ESA that when in operation jerks and bounces, I have adjusted shoes and scraper bar to the point that there is 1/2 of clearance from contact with bar and ground but still have problem. I made sure air pressure was good to. It's to the point that even at slow speeds it still "bucks" and bounces the front end when snow blowing and at time I need to pull up on the handle bars to have blower in "ground contact".

Is your drive cable over adjusted? When I first used My Ariens, it would pull the front end up. As it broke in (i.e belt stretched some and cable) in calmed down. You should have a nominal gap from the scrapper bar to the ground. I use a piece of a brown cardboard box, to set the gap.

I use a piece of wooden yardstick to set my scrapper height, then bring my skids to the ground and tighten.

Pictures would help.

Also, don't tell me your running chains, as that would jerk the machine.

Sure sounds like something else going on, like worn axle bearings, something broke ???
