Question about Mowtownusa Snow Thrower Starter Switch for Toro S-200 and S-620 units # 29-5560 40-594

SNOW BLOWER FRICTION WHEEL WON'T DISENGAGE

I have a Craftsman model 536.887251 snow thrower. After having a problem with the drive I found a tension spring had fallen off. I replaced it but the Friction Wheel is still engaged with the Swing Plate. Only after exerting downward pressure on the Swing Plate with a screw driver can I spin the wheel freely. Everything looks like it is in place and there are no broken parts. Is there any way to adjust the swing plate in order to get the proper clearance for the Friction Drive Wheel? It aligned with the tabs and the cable is adjusted.

Use a good quality silicon lube and spray into the top of the cable. Do this until it comes out the bottom, a little at a time. Also, spray all pivot points. Don't use WD-40, it will freeze. Lube everything at the end of winter and again before winter.

The drive cable came off as i was engaging it & i can't figure how to replace it


TRACTION DRIVE CLUTCH CONTROL
CABLE
6.1. The drive control is on the right side of the handle bars

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

6.3. Confirm that the fuel level is low enough to prevent spillage through the gas cap vent with a plastic bag between the cap and the filler neck.

6.4. Carefully tip the snow thrower forward so it rests on the auger housing.

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.

6.8. Detach the spring end from the friction wheel support bracket.

6.9. Examine the removed cable: If the cable failed because of something other than normal wear, identify and correct the cause before returning the snow thrower to service.

6.10. Install new cable by reversing the removal proceedure.

6.11. Run/test/adjust the tension on the traction drive
clutch control cable.

30 in. craftsman snow thrower,model no. 247.883960,pulls to the right


If your blower uses the two wheels to drive which I think it does I would suggest that you have a shear pin on the right side that is broken. If that is the case you will have to pull the wheel off and replace the shear pin. You can tell if it's broken by lifting the right side and trying to turn the wheel by hand.If it turns easily its broken.
This is an idea only. You might want to check both wheels as I'm not sure as far as the steering is concerned.

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.
