HiActually, should be straight forward ..... Drain the gas out of the tank, also good time to drain the oil, and change the oil to a fresh 5W30 Full Synthetic ....... Once unit is void of gas, and possibly empty oil as well, put it up in the service position, pull the belly inspection pan and you will see what you have to do to change out the friction disc. Most of the relatively newer machines are pretty easy, .... Some of the older 60's or 70's units were somewhat involved.
Not very? One example:Looking for any advice on how easy or hard it would be to change my friction wheel on my snow blower .
HiThat job is easy, go on Youtube and there are some videos that will walk you through the job.
thank you all for your great advice to help me solve my problem ,
I could not find my type of transmission set up on youtube
on how to take the shaft apart ,
does the 2 iner gears that are one on each side of the friction wheel shaft stay in place
as I take out the shaft or does the whole shaft come out with the gears
please see pic I posted .
looks like your friction disc axle will slide out enough to add the disc by only unbolting one side. Wheel has to be removed to get to the 3 bolts.
