    Sorry, I didn't mean to make that a solution. Hit the wrong key. Anyway, if you'll get the model number from under the seat and post it here, I tell you what you need to fix it. MTD makes several different steering systems. That's why I need the model #. Dwain

How do I fix my snowblower when the wheels won,t move ahead or back

Sounds like gear on axle shaft broke shear bolt or key. Take bottom plate off base of snowblower.It is ok to tip snowblown up on front end so wheels are in air. After plate is off turn wheels and see if drive gear is moving with axle. If not key way or bolt has broken off, replace and will be back in motion.

Can you please advise your brand name and model number (of your ice-maker)?

However it sounds like the drive blade may be rounded off, but this is just a guess in the absence of model number.

Best regards,

I have an 04 yz 125 that won't shift into 2nd but

2nd gear is at the bottom of the shafts if the tranny is stacked in the mag side case. So it is controlled by the bottom fork. You should be able to shift it thru all the gears by turning the shift drum. Make sure as you shift the shafts stay all the way in the output shaft and idler shaft bearings. As you shift it, look for full mesh between the wheels(shaft that goes to the clutch) and the gears across on the output shaft.
If that all looks good, the shifter cluster(on the end of the shift drum, with the 2 dogs that engage the notched wheel on the end of the drum) may not be lined up properly. If the gears and shift drum are new, I'm thinking I'd look there first. Good luck!

How to replace key ignition

I don't think your vehicle has an airbag system, but please be certain if it has I would refer you to a manual for the proceedure to discharge SRS system before you start. Some local libraries have manuals that they will let you look at and photo copy. You will need a good quality steering wheel puller, and snap ring pliers and a tool to remove the locking ring retainer and to reinstall it. All you need to do is pull the horn ring (look at the back of the steering wheel) remove the screws that hold horn pad on. Next loosen the steering wheel nut do not remove at this time this is left on to prevent you from getting a steering wheel in the teeth when it pops loose, (possibly). Next check to see the locater marks on the column shaft and the wheel note position and mark if necessary. Do not use a hammer to pound on shaft of column it WILL damage the shaft! Use steering wheel puller tool to remove wheel. Next use the lock plate removal tool to depress and release pressure on retaining clip holding plate on remove plate. You may have to pull turn signal switch out of the way by removing the handle and retaining screws. Now you will see a plastic clip that holds two brass comtacts carefully move the top plastic release clip down to release and remove small contact assembly. You should be able to see a square notch in front of the mechanical key lock mechanism. With battery disconnected move cylinder to on position and slide out assembly. Slide new assembly in place and try back to lock position and remove key. Reverse order to assemble.

John deere 68 riding mower steering column won't turn wheel assembly via arced toothed plate. Wheel assembly OK and greased. Some minor play when rotating steering column with steering wheel, but appears...

Just had same problem with my craftsmen. There is a very inadequate little nylon bushing supposed to keep that shaft stable. When worn out it allows that shaft to move and puts the gears in a bind. It is located on the end closest to arced gear where shaft hooks to drag link. Its a pain.

Pulley wheel slips off and the agitation stops.

There should be square notch in the pulley and one in the shaft, this keeps the pulley on the shaft, if that shear pin or keeper is missing you will need to replace it most auto parts shops have shear pin material in stock and they are pretty cheap.
