What engine do you have? Tecumseh those are usual 18-21oz Not sure with briggs, but will be around a 1/2 qt (16oz) start there. Add a little at a time to bring level up. get back if you have and need more specifics.

SOURCE: how to adjust a 9460897 mtd snow blower auger

On the handle end (usually) of the cable is a curved metal connector. Attached to the connector is a threaded rod with a nut. Attach a pair of pliers to the threaded cylinder that the threaded rod goes into. Loosen the nut. Turn the threaded cylinder into the threaded rod to tighten or out to loosen. When you have the correct adjustment, tighten the nut back down onto the cylinder. To be correctly adjusted, pull the cover off the auger belt and push down on the handle. The spring attached to the cable at the pulley end should stretch out when the handle is fully depressed. Spring tension keeps the belt tight. iaff801.jpg

Craftsman 32" 10 hp


3600+/- 20rpm. That's the top end, I'd say idle should be between 1200 and 1500, but I don't know what model motor it is. I'm assuming its a Tecumseh snow king engine

I have a 8 hp snow blower,I would like to know what the oil capacity of engine and what type of motor oil i should use.What weight oil?and can you use regular sae motor oil automotive type non detergent ?


Your question as I received it did not specify the engine make, but most 8 hp Techumseh, B&S and Powermore engines take 22 to 32 oz of oil. Buy a quart, put two-thirds of the quart in the engine and check the level with the dipstick or fill hole. Add more if needed to come up to the "full" mark.
All the manufactures and Craftsman recommends 5W30 for 4 cycle winter use.
You can use regular sae oil, but I prefer to use Mobil ONE or a heavy duty oil because air cooled engines run hotter than car engines. Look for a SC/SD or greater rating on the bottle.
Change your oil once a year.

The model number of your snow blower is actually 247.886640. That's why nobody else could figure where to get your manual.
Here is the link to the manual:

MTD YARD MACHINE SNOW BLOWER DOES NTO SHIFT INTO


Many times moisture attacks the hexagon shaft that the friction disc assembly slides on. It slides from side to side on the shaft to create Reverse 1 & 2, and the other end creates 1-6 forward. With a wire brush and sandpaper, clean the rust from the hexagon shaft, at the same time lubricate the friction disc bearing with penetrating oil and with a soft hammer, tap gently until the assembly starts to slide on the hexagon shaft. After all the rust is removed and disc assembly is sliding, apply a light film of graphite grease on the shaft. You may want to re-lubricate on a yearly basis.
