Question about Craftsman 16" High Garden Tractor Snow and Dozer Blade
Basically the threads that hold the track drive wheels on, unthread themselves when the snowblower is in motion.
My question is this: Should the screws rotate with the wheel or stay stationary. In other words should the plastic wheels spin on the axels or does the axel spin with the wheel. I'm thinking that the little axels are seized to the plastic wheel and should rotate freely. A little hard to explain.
If anyone has one of these, please run your machine and tell me if the bolts holding the drives wheels spin when in motion or stay stationary.
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.
