SOURCE: replacing the blades on a craftsman dyt 4000

Not a hard job, but you will need a couple of tools. First, you will need a wrench that fits the nut that is holding the blade on. I prefer a closed end wrench, but an open end will do. Second, you will need a blade changing tool. The brand name is called a Blade Hog. It attaches to the deck and holds the blade in place so you can turn the nut. Raise the deck as high as it will go, attach the Blade Hog, and then loosen and remove the nut. Be sure and pay attention to which side is up on the old blade and put the new one on in the same manner.

hope this helps,

SOURCE: DYT 4000 Lawn tractor won't start

I solved the problem after buying carb and fuel pump rebuild kits.The carb kit didn't fit anyway, but didn't need it. The problem was in the fuel filter. I had forgotten the problem happened when I ran out of gas. Inside the fuel filter is a washer held in place by a spring. Without fuel it apparently lost pressure and the washer slipped out of place about 1/2", which was enough to let all the gas through that could. The rebuild kit had a new rubber gasket. I won't let it run out of gas again.

SOURCE: where can i fine manual for engine replacement

TO REMOVE THE PULLEY FROM THE CRANKSHAFT END:

Remove the blade belt and, if needed, the deck to give yourself more room to work. Apply your brake pedal and lock it down, this will relieve the tension on the ground drive belt.
If you have an electric blade clutch, find the plug where the wire goes over from the clutch to the frame and unplug it.(Electric clutch will be heavy when unbolted so be ready for it.)
In the center of the pulley or blade clutch you will find a long bolt (most likely a 5/8 head on it) You may need a deep socket to reach it depending upon the type of stack pulley on it, remove this bolt and the pulley should slide freely on the crankshaft. slide it downward and slip off the belt on the top of the pulley then remove the pulley the rest of the way

SOURCE: My Craftsman DYT 4000 keeps popping out of gear.

your trans. is broke, if you can keep using it i would, fixing transmission problems is more often than not more expencive than a new transmission, only the trans. will be effected ( it wont hurt the motor or anything) Six years is a little early to have these problems but seeing how much you use it, im not shocked by it

MTD 8/26 snowblower


Either there is a belt or a chain off, or the linkage became disconnected or there is a pin sheared. Take one of the three. If you have power spinning like you said then those are your choices! Best of luck to you. Hope you beat the weather!

Not sure how to reroute auger cable on craftsman snowblower


I assume the cable to the auger was removed and needs to be re-installed.
There should be a clamp that the cable ran thru, then attaches to the auger
control. Find this clamp on your snowblower, and route it thru this clamp
then attach it to your auger control.

If the blower (impeller) turns and the auger doesn't there is a 90% chance you broke the shear bolts that protect the auger gear box.

Look at your auger and you will find the bolts shown at the arrows in this picture are missing. Some snowthrowers will have two bolts and others like the new Craftsman will have four.
You can get new ones at your local mower repair shop, your local Sears mall store, or online at sears.com.
Use shear pins or shear bolts not regular bolts. The shear bolts are designed to break off so you don't tear out the front gear box.

Start buy checking the gear box to see if there is any cracks in the housing if there is then your going to need a new gear box assembly, sometimeswhat will happen is the auger will stop do to an object and the shear bolts don't break while the impeller is still triing to spin causeing the gears in the gear box to break.You can go to www.ariens.com, then go to parts,then click where it says click here to enter Parts Radar, you will need to have your model numberyou can get the break down for your machine which will help in dismantle and puting it back together you will also be able to get the part number for any parts you will need. If you need a new gear box get the whole assembly not the indivisual parts. any other questions please feel free to ask.
