Depending on how old it is it is either belt or chain driven check those. but first check your shear pins in the axles to make sure the axle isn't turning inside the wheel those are the basic 2 prob i worked on them for 10 yrs for sears

6.2. Stop engine and allow it to cool disconnect disconnect
the spark plug and ground it to the engine.

6.5. Mark the bracket to the frame as demonstrated in figure 5.2

6.6. Detach the z-fitting end of the cable from the engagement handle.

NOTE: The cable routes down to the cable guide pulley that is mounted on the drive cable adjustment bracket.

6.7. Remove the bottom access panel.

How do I get the left wheel of a Murray snow thrower to engaged when the traction lever is engaged?


You will find there is a shear pin that has broken in the wheel that will not engage. Not sure if its a pin or bolt. I had to replace one several years ago.

Snow Thrower Won't Start. I have a Sears 26" Snow Thrower Model No 247.889702. It will not start. Changed fuel, new spark plug, propoerly primed the engine, tried both pull start and electric star


does it have spark? if you can start it with starting fluid chances are the carb needs a good cleaning or replacement. fuel these days goes bad in about 2 months without stabilisers in it. gums up the tiny passages in the carbs. i suggest seafoam as a treatment but anything is better than nothing...good luck

I have Troy-Bilt storm 7524 snow blower which normally works fine, however, it has started to have problems shifting back into forward gear after being reversed. I'll put the snow-blower into reverse gear...


Try lubing the linkage where it shifts from forward and to reverse the linkage is most likely freezing up or has snow or ice build up causing it not to shift, My thought is your shoving it hard enough that it finally engages when you get the snow or ice to break off.

Snow Thrower does not self-propel


Did you check under the handle area, near the blower itself for a transmission lever? This will engage & disengage the transmission.
