SOURCE: drive chain loose and poped offmy snowblower

Two things you can do. First if you look close you may see a spot where you can adjust the chain tension. Nest your chain should have what is called master link. Look close and you will see a clip that undoes the link. Pull the link out and the chain will come apart. If you are not mechanically inclined take it to any small engine shop and they will take a link out for you and then you will be home free.Hope this helps. donnyb60

The item you are referring to is called a snap ring. You can purchase a small collection of snap rings from you local hardware store or automotive dealer. These snap rings can be viewed at the bottom of this filehttp://www.rotorclip.com/cat_pdfs/de.pdf or ordered from http://www.rotorclip.com/.
These links should get you the information you need to go to the local hardware store and get your parts.

Roper snowblower drive chain keeps coming off


sounds like you have either stretched chains or worn sprockets. Also check the outer bearing that the shafts fit into for wear. If they wear then the chain can't retain it's tension properly, get sloppy and then derail itself. Most likely your bearings is the problem.

What is the foot pounds for the front wheel bearings on a 1995 chrysler cirrus


Hello, If you Chrysler has replaceable wheel bearings and seal. This is the way it goes---pack the wheel bearing with new grease-install the bearing in the wheel nub--install new back wheel seal--coat the axle shaft with grease lightly, thing coat-----install wheel hub on to axle shaft...be careful here don't damage the rear hub seal------------insert front race washer---install axle shaft nut--tighten nut down wheel nut until it is firm with water pump pliers----spin the hub/with tire mounted.
(the wheel and hub will turn but not freely)----take the pliers and back off the axle nut 1/4 turn----now spin the wheel and axle hub, it should spin freely---now if doesn't spin freely---back off the axle nut about 1/16 or 1/32 (or just a little bit)-----now, spin the wheel and hub and if turn freely------------Now grab the top of the wheel/tire and move it back and forth.-----if there is some movement ---try tighten the axle nut just a little little bit, unit the one can barely feel some little movement in the wheel/tire and hub.-----------Now, spin the wheel/tire and hub and it should also turn freely.

If it does----install new and correct size of cotter pin and bent the ends around the axle nut.----

coat the inside of the hub cup with grease. Now, use an rubber or plastic hammer to install the cup on the wheel/tire hub. You are finished with one wheel bearing maintenance. Now do the other side.



I really don't know if you Chrysler Cirrus has replaceable wheel bearing. All the auto/trucks have replaceable hubs, that means that the replacement is total hub with axle shaft, sealed bearings, and seals. This is bolt to each wheel steering hub. This work to remove these one unit hubs.

Four bolts hold the axle hub to the steering hub. Hear is the problem!! it has rusted to the steering hub. Also, these hubs cost more than replacing bearings, races, seals to cool turn of $180 to $250+ I wish you luck in your replacement of wheel bearing on your Chrysler. GB..stewbison

Both wheels have a noticeable wobble. Can this be corrected?


Yes, the wobble can be fixed. First, remove both wheels and check the shaft bearings/bushings for wear. Make certain the grinder is unplugged and mounted securely. Try moving the shafts up, down side to side; there should be little or no noticeable movement. If there is movement it is a major(time and money) problem. I'm not familiar with what the shafts ride on. It could be, ball bearings(the best-long lasting, least friction, most accurate, but expensive), sealed bearings(almost as good as ball bearings, with many of the same attributes) and bushings(least expensive to produce and fit and cause the most friction. If excessive up,down side to side movement is present a decision must be made as to how much money/time you want to invest. If the shaft exhibit little movement; check if the shaft is running true/straight. Turn the grinder by hand while observing the shaft for bends. If none are seen by eye use a magnetic base micrometer to check run out(deviation from straight). If a micrometer isn't available; bend a short length of wire(coat hanger works nicely) with a small hook on one end and then put a pointer end on the other. Put a screw thought the end with the hook to mount it to the base of the grinder. Then bend the pointed end so it just touches the shaft. Rotate the shaft and notice if the distance changes between the point of the wire and the grinder shaft. Repeat for the other side. A couple of thousands won't hurt. However, any more and the cost effectiveness of tearing the grinder apart straightening the shaft must be considered. The most common cause of grinding wheel wobble is the wheels becoming out of true and/or unbalanced. This is easily cured with a wheel dressiing tool. The tool grinds the wheels in place. By gringing the wheels on the grinder they balance the wheel, true the wheel to the shaft and clean it of imbeded soft materials, aluminum, wood and so forth.

I have a Craftsman 1/2 hp, mod # 139.53603. When I press the remote or the panel button there is a humming sound from the motor. I opened the panel on the back and did not see anything out of line, etc. ...


Is the trolley jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor? If so, loosen the chain until the tension is off the trolley and then run the motor until the door is closed. Now locate the up limit on the side of the motor unit and turn this control 2 full turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Tighten the chain.

Honda vibrations


This one's a little tricky cause it could be a few things.
I'll try suggestions in the order of probability
  • Worn out chain & sprockets.(Or chain too tight or has a tight spot) Check this by raising the rear wheel off the ground,in neutral & spin the back wheel. If the chain & or sprockets are worn you'll feel it & hear it when you spin the wheel. If it has a tight spot,set the chain tension at the tight spot & lubricate well
  • Loose engine mounting bolts. If loose re- tighten.
  • Worn front sprocket shaft bearing. to check this(if chain seems ok) Remove the chain(note joining link direction of the circlip. The closed end faces the direction of rotation)Bike in neutral, turn the sprocket shaft by hand. It should turn smoothly.If it is notchy thats not good. It is a major job to change & can be expensive(So i hope its the chain &/or sprockets)
  • Broken tooth on a gear in the gearbox. I hope not as again a more difficult & expensive repair.
Hope this helps you narrow down your problem

It is 2 wheel drive and is the drive shaft it has wheel bearing support is 2 part drive shaft and the noise is after 55 like every second like scraping noise


It can be a u joint,or the drive shaft bearing,some call it drive shaft support bearing,or swing bearing.Moving the drive shaft up,and down should tell you if the swing bearing is bad,it should not have no movement up,or down,or side to side.It should stay centered in the housing,surrounded by rubber.

A grinding noise in the front end of my 2002 f250 super duty and its not the brakes


If it is a 2 wheel drive, it is probably your wheel bearings. If it a four wheel drive, it could be the front differential, the joints on the axle shafts, the locking hubs, or the wheel bearings. On the four wheel drive, crawl under the vehicle and grab the axle shafts and see where the excess movement is. Also try grabbing the tires and see if there is any movement. There shouldn't be any movement while the wheels are on the ground.
