New to me Craftsman snowblower. I'm this far in. Trying to get the smooth large friction wheel off. Unsure of next steps. Have a look. Any tips appreciated.
That bolt retains a sprung idler pulley arm for a drive belt. No, it does not affect removal of the friction plate.does taking this bolt out do anything?
Yes I did. I was prepared to fix it. I just was not sure on the depth of the repair. The engine ran very well. The auger and blower seem to work well. Tranny kept jumping the chain was the known complaint. Now we know why. I don't feel like I was screwed. Just letting others know, to be on the lookout for similar faults in used blowers.did you buy the snowblower in "non-working" condition?
