Snowblower won't go into gear after replacing wheels

Do you still have the original wheels? You should be able to see some mechanism through which the axle was "keyed" to the wheels so when the axle turns, the wheels turn with it. The new wheels don't appear to have such a mechanism. Take one new wheel off and compare it carefully to one of the old wheels. You should be able to spot the difference.

Have a craftsman DYS4500 with a front mount snowblower only one rear wheel on right side will turn on ice with chains on both rear wheels you cant move machine just spins on right

yes this is correct that is called a " differential" it allows you to turn in circles without one wheel dragging in grass, larger 4wd drive tractors have what is called a "diff Lock" that can be engauged this pins both tires on same axle together and keeps them both turning in low traction surfaces,

im unaware of any craftsman that is made with a "diff LOck"

I have a 8/26 mastercraft snowblower Model No.

Have you checked all belts and belt tensioners? If so, you will have to tip unit up and take bottom plate off of unit. The drive system consists of a rubber lined wheel that makes contact with a friction plate once handle is depressed for drive. As you change gears you can see rubber drive wheel changes position in relation to friction disc to change speed. If belts are good, I would look in this area for problem. These rubber lined dive wheels do wear out and are replaceable. Also, on some models you can adjust further. Hope this helped. Happy wrenching!

I have a 2 yr old 8HP Craftsman snowblower. My small engine buddy picked it up in Nov to give it a tune up check the belts etc..I had been doing yearly maint on it but wanted to see how he busted it apart...

Are you trying to move the gear selector with the engine off? This is a friction wheel/disk transmission and the friction wheel usually will not move on the drive disk without the engine running.
If you have the bottom cover off, lift up on the drive wheel. (The rubber wheel. Lift it off the drive plate) It has tension on the plate using a spring. The gear shift lever should move then.
If it won't move check the sliding mechanism for the friction wheel and make sure it has a little grease on the shaft it slides on. Also check the cable and the pulleys the cable runs in. Sometimes the engagement cable (forward drive lever on the handle) falls off the pulleys. Sometimes these little pulleys will break.
These Craftsman snowblower transmissions are all basically the same. Here is a manual that shows the drive system. Look at page 20, figure 22.
Let me know if you have any other questions or you need more clarification.

My Craftsman 26" 9HP snowblower pulls to the left. Any ideas?

You likely have it in one wheel drive,try lifting the rear wheals of the ground to check and see if both wheels tirn at the same speed.If they don't then you need to change the wheel that is not turning into a drive wheel by removing the pin and putting it back in in the lock position[usually the next hole back in the axle].

Snowblower Treads not turning

Check the steel axles that go through the plastic wheels.What happens is the axles rust and swell not allowing the track wheels to turn freely.its a problem overlooked by all the so called small engine repair shops.I have removed the wheels and sanded the axles to remove the rust.I greased the shafts and the wheels move freely.There is a provision on the wheel for a grease fitting.I carefully drilled the holes and with some strong waterproof glue thredhed a fitting in each wheel.

Screws on my Sears track drive snowblower unthread themselves.

Back wheels have a gear that connects to the drive chain. on each side. those spin.
The front ones which are Idlers do not spin as the idler wheel as a bushing in it that allows free motion on the shaft without resistance. Use a nylock nut with Locktight for starters. The try that.

Hope this helps. -Jeff anchorage small engine repair.
