Actually, 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.

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.

Hi
thanks for your advice regarding my snow blower
is it possible that only the friction wheel shaft comes out alone and every thing else stays in place, Would the left side be the best way to take out the friction wheel shaft .
thank you
