I have a 15 year old snow blower that starts and runs great, but first start this year - it will not move forward or reverse in any setting? Looking underneath I could see gears/chain full of rust, freed them up with penetrating oil then gave a good greasing and tracks now are manually moveable, but still no forward or reverse.

Drive train belts seem fine.

Any ideas?

First thing I would do is check the friction disc rubber.

Welcome to the forum, that said you should verify your friction disk by removing your bottom panel and oil and grease some more. You should oil and grease once a year or at least once every 2 yrs. Please report on it pans out.

Found this video. Not sure if it applies to yours machine or not.

Make sure the rubber on the friction wheel is in good shape with no cracks or missing pieces, make sure the wheel and disc are good and clean with no grease on them and make sure the cable is pulling them together tightly when you engage the handle.
