Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others

Open Question

Hello - I have a Troy-Bilt 5524 snow thrower. Getting ready for this winter, and the wheels are locked (when you press down the drive handle, no movement despite engagement of the friction wheel. I took off the plate, and looked, and it seems to be something with the hexagonal drive shaft. When I remove fastener, and move the small gear to the left, the snow thrower moves freely. Put this gear back in place - frozen again... hmm. I found a post on another site that said something about "frozen / rusted needle bearings on a drive shaft". But don't know what that means. Any help you could provide would be appreciated! Thanks, Randy Swenson

SOURCE: my poulan snow blower keeps breaking sheer pins in the wheels,

1)try replacing them with a heavy duty "roll-pin"
these are available from auto parts stores.
two types are available.
first is the "single-roll",second is the"multi-rolled"with many layers to it.

try both they're cheap.

2)try not hitting things with the blades
3)dont force the machine in heavy wet ,or frozen icy packed snow.

SOURCE: SNOW BLOWER FRICTION WHEEL WON'T DISENGAGE

Use a good quality silicon lube and spray into the top of the cable. Do this until it comes out the bottom, a little at a time. Also, spray all pivot points. Don't use WD-40, it will freeze. Lube everything at the end of winter and again before winter.

SOURCE: bicycle handlebars move seperatly from the wheel

most older bicycles have a bolt running straight through the handlebars.in the middle of the handlebars is there a allen key head or a single 10 mm nut head, depending on the bicycle you have. some have four screws holding a bracket on ,theses have notches to stop the bars from going up and down. look under the plate to see if there is any way of tightening the bars up. hope this helps

SOURCE: craftsman snow blower wheels wont move. Help!

If it is a 5.5 HP dual stage, like mine, it could be that the belt has popped off the friction pulley. If you drain the gas, tip the unit on its "face" and remove the large shield on the bottom you will see a 3" pulley attached to the drive shaft. There will also be what looks like a fan belt floating around in there. That fan belt nees to go on the pullet, as it serves as the friction disk tio drive the wheels. Good luck. this happens to mine ALL the time. very frustrating. :(

SOURCE: weight wheel moved from 25 to 30 while outside of

Push button under on the bottom of the handle to release the adjuster. If it was moved while out of the little stand it may be damaged or not working well. If it was a fluke, just push the button take all the weights off both sides and start over on 5. That button should normally only be depressed when the handle is seated in the stand.

Troybilt snow thrower wheels lock up cannot push or pull. Model 5524. Whats up?


Sounds like friction disk is not retracting for pressure plate. Flip snowblower up on front end and take out 4 or 6 bolt out of cover plate. wheels will be in the air so try to turn wheels and look. Your fiction disk is the rubber wheel that moves with you gear shift lever. It should not be touching round metal plate unless your handle on bars is push down to in gage drive. Most snowblowers have a spring to pull metal plate back your probably broke or rusted off.

Troy-bilt 5524 snowblower - the drive wheels are locked. Pulled it apart and everything turns but when all gears are in place wheels won't turn - If I move the small gear from the drive it works but goes...


The outermost large gear has 'needle' bearings that will over time get snow, salt grim caught in them and they freeze up. Remove the gear and intially work some WD-40 into the bearings with your fingers. Mine loosed up fairly easy. Continue adding WD-40 to kind of rinse away the grim. Then, dry it out with a rag. I added some lithium (white) grease and worked it good before replacing. Once replaced, it will spin like a top!
