Toro 824 XL snowblower will not drive

Hello,
I have had issues with my Toro snowblower failing to drive when lever is engaged. Wheels will somewhat turn when no real pressure is on the machine. I lifted it up and opened belly pan and belt seems to be ok, friction wheel is engaging the plate. However I see some issues with the drive gears. The main axle gear might not be fully touching the sprocket. is there an adjustment for this? Is this a common problem?

Thanks.

could be worn bushings letting the gears move apart. Pics or better yet video will make finding the problem much easier.

Welcome to the forum Kep


Worn bushing, stretched chain. Posting the model and serial number of the machine will help us look up an exploded diagram.

It could be a model 38066, 38083, 38084 or 38086 ??

On a machine I had the bushings "6:1" on the diagram were shot and allowed poor contact between the gears. I replaced the bushings and also drilled the cluster to install a grease zerk. Had to make a new shaft as the gear had eaten into it when it ran out of bushing. I give it a shot or two of grease in summer when I'm going over them.
