Are your wheels bolted to the axles or are there hitch pins? If you have pins make sure that the pin is through the wheel and axle not just the axle. If that is OK, then the cable that goes to the release may be to tight. Try and adjust it looser.

SOURCE: Auger stopprd working on an MTD snowblower.

The manual has a step by step procedure for adjusting the cables for the auger, speed selector and drivewheels. One socket wrench and about 10 min should do it.

My Yardworks is an MTD product and it's manual should be similar to yours. If you lost it, you can download it from MTD's site.

SOURCE: where is the flywheel key on a briggs and stratton

You must remove the starter cover. Remove the metal shroud that includes the fuel tank. Tou will see the flywheel (it has a number of curved fins on the edge.)Remove the nut holding the flywheel and find one of the same thread size. Use the one you found and thread it on just a few turns. Take the edge of the flywheel in one hand and tap on the nut with the other using a hammer. You may have to rap sharply. Once the flywheel comes loose, pick it off of the engine and you will see the keyway on the top of the shaft. The key connects the flywheel to the shaft and will break if you hit something very strong. If you change the key and it starts running correctly and you had hit something prior to the break, CHECK THE BLADE...Good luck...Lee

SOURCE: 13.5hp Briggs And Stratton snowblower.I tried to

Concerning your starter/pull cord problem, what has probably happened is that due to sitting idle for an extended period, the pinion gear had stuck in the down position on the clutch drive.

When you engaged it with power it spun as it was supposed to do but did not immediately spin up into the ring gear.

After you released the starter button and it began to slow down the gear spun up into the flywheel and jammed because it didn't have enough power to turn the engine.

A usually simple fix for this is to turn the engine backward by hand just enough to relieve the tension and the return spring will push the gear back down.

At this point, you can try the electric starter again and it should work properly. If it does not work, you will have to remove the starter and clean and inspect the starter drive on the top of the starter.

Concerning the fact that it would not start, you more than likely have some old fuel trapped in the bottom of the float bowl.

You may be able to remedy this by spraying some carburetor cleaner in the carb while trying to start it.

If it has spark and everything else is in good condition, it will start and run as long as it has carb cleaner getting to the engine so you may need to spray it a few times while it is running on that and sometimes the stale fuel problem will clear itself.

If it doesn't clear up and run on its own without the carb cleaner after 3 or 4 shots of spray you will need to remove the float bowl and clean it and the main jet with the carb cleaner.

Protect your eyes and bare skin while using the carburetor cleaner, it will injure you. Do not spray it on any rubber gaskets or seals, it will swell and ruin them.

Sorry for the "book" I wrote but I am trying to explore as many possibilities as I can to get you up and snow blowing!

SOURCE: Still no fire , toro 8/32 briggs stratton engine snowblower

Repair Manual (Antique) - CE8069 for engines built prior to 1981

Point setting should be .020" after they are full open. I am nut sure that TDC will give full open.

Armature/coil air gap should be 'the thickness of the cardboard' of the box it came in.
*note: the coating on the wire from the coil to the points should be sanded off where they connect to the points.

The voltage coming from the coil is DC and may be as much as 8,000 to 15,000 volts. You WILL know it when it has spark, as in, you may have to change your underwear if it sparks and you are touching the end of the wire.

The 'afterthought' is that an electronic coil could have been mounted to eliminate the points to aid in a sharper spark and easier starting.

Final note: make sure all snwoblower frame wiring and switches are working correctly, as this can 'kill' the spark.

How do i fix right side wheel with no tracktion on snowthrower mod# 1696159 briggs

Refer to this diagram:
You need to determine which part is slipping. Does the chain spin? Does the sprocket spin. When you determine which part is slipping, usually a pinion gear, this will tell you where the problem is. If it is a pinion slipping, there is a roll pin that will commonly shear between the shaft and the gear. All that would need to be done, is to use a punch, knock out the old pin, align and install a new shear or roll pin.

"traction control lights"

You seem to have no question here? Yes I agree that your tracktion control is tied into other parts of the vehicles electronics. It is basically a way to apply brakes to tires that may easily be spinning on ice or mud. It will stop the whels from digging a hole by stopping the free wheeling spinning that may occur right when you put it in gear and let off the brake. If you have any wheels that spin even without giving any gas, it will brake those wheels and shift power to the other wheels that are not spinning in an attempt to drive the vehicle in the selected direction of travel. The wheels will not dig a hole and get it stuck as quickly. The Brake system detects the spinning and sends it to the ecm to check the throttle position, if no throttle is being applied then no wheels should be spinning at a rate faster than what it has recorded in it's memory under normal driving. Then the brakes are applied to those and the pcm will transfer the power to the non spinning wheels.

Have a craftsman DYS4500 with a front mount snowblower only one rear wheel on right side will turn on ice with chains on both rear wheels you cant move machine just spins on right

yes this is correct that is called a " differential" it allows you to turn in circles without one wheel dragging in grass, larger 4wd drive tractors have what is called a "diff Lock" that can be engauged this pins both tires on same axle together and keeps them both turning in low traction surfaces,

im unaware of any craftsman that is made with a "diff LOck"

Craftsman Tractor (B&S 20 HP Intek) starter motor spins, but the gear does not move up and engage the fly wheel. How is it supposed to work? Can I fix it?

All it should need is a kit that gives you the top half of the starter. I just did one on my 12hp craftsman. The kit was $23.00 and even came with the directions. very easy. Hope this helps

I have a briggs stratton 28v707 and am trying to remove the fly wheel to get the alternator off to replace and am having some issiues getting the fly wheel off any sujestions or advice.

Briggs ang stratton offers a very inexpensive flywheel puller for under 20 dollars. The part number is 19203 and is avail at all briggs & stratton service centers. If you dont wish to buy the puller the dealer can pull it for you for a minimal fee. Alternate method which i do not recomend is to strike the flywheel with a brass hammer. Somtimes it will pop right off. Good luck hope this works

Ariens Snowblower won't engage into drive

I had the same problem with my 5HP Dual stage (C950-520240) Canadian model and found that the arm connected to the traction cable (part #85449 "Shaft Traction Clutch") which forces the friction disk up to the rubber friction wheel had a cracked weld and had bent, preventing positive contact with the rubber friction wheel. The drive wheels would turn if you lifted the back of the machine off the ground, but would not work if under load. First I replaced the belt and rubber friction wheel, but no go. I had to basically disassemble the whole drive assembly to find the problem, very frustrating because you could not see the crack in the arm from head on. I had the cracked and bent arm straightened and welded, all is OK now. enb54.jpg
