the augers on many craftsman snowblowers have a sheer bolt. If the auger encounters too much resistance, ie, a foreign object like a piece of wood or even a newspaper buried in the snow, this bolt will break off preventing damage to the gear box, which is a lot more expensive to repair than replacing the bolt.
This bolt requires not tools to install, just insert and secure with a cotter pin.
The parts dept at sears can sell you the replacement bolts with the correct sheer force rating. Have your snow blower model number handy when you call or go in.

SOURCE: I need a replacement belt
Sears will not tell you what size of belt you need. They only list parts by part number. But this machine uses MTD belts and you can get them at searspartsdirect.com or your local mower shop can order them through MTD.

Here are the two part numbers for the two belts on the machine. MTD Part #: 954-0343
and #: 954-0430B

SOURCE: I have a Sears snow
many Sears/Craftsman snowblowers have a shear bolt on the auger shaft or one on each side. This bolt is designed to break under a specific amount of force to prevent damage to the gear box or drive assembly if the blades encounter an immovable object or something becomes jammed (even a newspaper buried in the snow can cause this). They likely broke at some point during use in the past and you did not realize this, or they were not properly installed when the blower was new. If you check the auger shaft and find one or 2 holes that look like something should be there, then you found the most likely problem. If you reply with the model I can tell you exactly where to look and the part # or if you realize the bolts are missing you can contact that parts dept at Sears with your model and they can provide replacement bolts. Can be a pain with small things but a lot less expensive than a new gearbox.

This appears to be a Sears model number--go to: www.searspartsdirect.com and enter the model number minus the decimal point. This will bring up a series of drawings of all of the replaceable parts for the machine. Locate the pulley that you speak of and see if a 'key' is shown to lock the pulley to the shaft. Hope this helps!

If you look on the auger shaft you will see some bolts, they are called shear pins. They are there to break if something gets in the auger and jams it, the bolts will shear off to prevent damage to the auger or something else. What you have to do is replace the shear pin or pins on the side that is not turning. Hope this is helpful. All the best and good luck.
