A drive plate and friction wheel is used on many snowblowers. Recently my friction wheel damaged my drive plate and it had to be replaced. It's a very easy part to replace, providing you know one VERY IMPORTANT thing. Obviously the friction wheel assembly needs to be removed and then the drive plate can be un-screwed from the shaft. This is done by tapping the plate using a long punch. There are support rips on the underside of the plate that the punch can hit. A few taps with a hammer and its loosened up. Now for the VERY IMPORTANT thing: THE THREADS ARE REVERSE! IT MUST TURN CLOCKWISE TO BE UN-SCREWED!


I couldn't find this information anywhere. I hope this helps anyone having to replace the Drive Plate!!

What make snowblower does this refer to? True for most? I've never had to replace the friction plate.
