My snowblower wont go when put in gear. I changed the oil and had to remove a whell to do this. There is a half moon key that was loose and I don't know where it goes. I think this goes somewhere in the wheel area but don't know where.

    the snowblower is a Yard-Man model 316E633E401. I have had it about 15 years. Thanks for your help. Any further info would be appreciated as to where in the axel the half moon goes.

  • almason Nov 14, 2010

    The half moon piece goes between the axel and the drive gear. Their is a slot in the axel just where the gear is and you need to play around with the axl and the gear to find the slot where the half piece drive fits. I did a lot of monkey work but finally got it in place. I appreciate all of your help in this. Got my driveway done - - - finally.

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

SOURCE: What does the half moon lit up mean, No screen.

The half moon usually means the computer is in SLEEP MODE. Normally, pressing the spacebar will wake the computer up but I have noticed that sometimes, the computer can get "stuck" in sleep mode. If that is the case, you can hold the power button down (until the power turns off and the moon disappears). Wait a few seconds then hit the power button again to turn the laptop back on.

SOURCE: cant put my mavic back together properly

It sounds like you lost the washer that sits between the bearing in the nose and the freehub bearing. If you lose that washer, when you re-tighten the axle, the two bearings will bind and prevent the freewheel from spinning easily.

Take your freehub off again and see if that washer is there. If it isn't, you'll have to get a new one and replace it. It's easy to lose that thing if you don't know it's there when you take the wheel apart, because it'll just fall out.

When I reassemble those wheels. I thread the drive-side axle through the freehub body, then place the washer over the axle on the inside of the bearing, then thread the axle through the nose.

Also note that if your freehub seemed loose, it probably needs to be replaced. The FTS-L freehub body used on the Ksyrium wheels uses a nylon bushing as the friction interface to the nose, and this bushing wears down over time even with good lubrication.

How to make the Spinmaster Air Hogs Moto Frenzy R/c Stunt Bike work.


If the bike isnt working properly, like short driving time and wobbly steering. lay it on the side with the screws pointing up, unscrew the 4 philips screws, the body is glued together so be careful, with a small flat screwdriver or a knife, bend the body apart along the crack going through the middle. Be extra careful in the lower front part because this is were the battery is placed. When the body halfes are separated, lay the half containing the elecronics and motors so you can axess the parts. Remove all dust and hair and othe forein matters. Take the rear wheel off and slide the tire off.With a small screwdriver press the three locking notches that holds the wheel togeather and separate the halfes. put a small amount of lubrication oil (thin oil) on the gyro axel inside the wheel and on the drive gear and spinn the gyro wheel so the oil gets in to the "bearings".Press the drive gear so it sits tighter towards the wheel (not too tight, it has to spin freely. Put the other half of the rear wheel back and spin the gyro wheel with your fingers as fast as you can. it should balance itself on a flat surface for atleast 5 - 10 seconds. if not put some more oil on the shaft, and try again. When finished dry of excessive oil and put the tire back. Take the dual gear that's in front of the rear wheel off. there is a small shim between this gear and the one that's still on the shaft. put some oil on the shaft and spin the shim and remaining gear so the oil lubricates the movement. put the dual gear back.Remove the wheelie gear ( the one with a stick lying under the bike) put a drop of oil on the gear axel that's underneath the wheelie gear. Spin all the gears so the oil can get inside and then remove the excessive oil with a tissue or something like that.The wheelie gear has a spring mounted on the backside, be sure to get this back right (the small ring of the spring shoul fit on a plastic pin in the body and the bigger ring on the cnter of the wheelie gear), and then put the wheelie gear back so it sits centered and conected to the second gear.Put the rear wheel back.Take the other body half and put a drop of oil on the gear shaft thats still in there, spin the gear etc.Put the halfes togeaher, be careful so you get all the axels and pins right and no wires between the halfes. squeese the halfes togeather and screw the 4 philips screws back. Put the driver back and charge the battery. Try it!!!

How do i put in gearbox oil


hard to change gears is a clutch problem mainly so make sure that the clutch is operating properly ( makes no difference if hydraulic or cable)
Drain out the oil from the drain plug on the bottom of the box. clean the magnet on the plug. check for metal bits as this indicates bearings or gear problems. Replace the plug. About half way up the side of the box you will find another plug. Remove it. The oil you are using should be to makers specs but I prefer a 80-90 epw gear oil as the gears do a lot of work and need that extra tension in the oil to keep the teeth apart. Some makers recommend 30 grade straight mineral oil (not engine oil) but use what is recommended. You get the gear oil in 1ltre bottles ( pint or quart) and they now have an extendible plastic hose that you pull out. Put that in the plug hole and squeeze the bottle. Will probably use 2 and 1 half bottles depending on the box. Squeeze in oil until it flows back out the fill hole. Let it level out as that is the correct level of oil for the box. refit the plug tight

Sterring lock left key in.turned whell broke off part of key.how do i remove lock


Right out of the book but earlier model. It should be the same.

Removal of the fork lock:

1. Loosen upper triple clamp pinch bolts, Remove upper triple clamp and handlebars.

2. Loosen fork stem bolt, Let fork stem drop down approx. 5 in.

On the left side of the steering stem there is a "half-moon" indentation that has been machined into the steering stem for the lock. Let the steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

3. Look on the underside of the lock on the right side of the frame and there is a lead plug driven into a hole. In this hole is a set screw that holds the lock into the frame. The book says to use a scribe to get the plug out with.

4. Unscrew the set screw.

5. Insert the key in the lock and turn partially.

6. Wiggle lock and pull until enough of the lock comes out to get a grip with pliers or other suitable tool.

7. Rotate steering stem slightly, while pulling on the lock until the lock is removed.

4 whell drive roar starting at 25mph


that really sounds like you need to verify the level of the trans-axle oil and/or the transmission oil. if you are unsure, or if you didnt perform the change of the oil at the required intervals, you should stop in a pep boys, jeffy lube or similar store and have the fluid levels check.

the transmission oil is easy to check with a dip stick in the engine (not the same to the engine oil), and the trans-axle oil, you will have to remove a bolt in the axle and check with your finger if it is in level.

Replacing camshaft position sensor, Sable 2003,Ohv


usually if the magnet in the sensor comes out it destroys the cam position shaft,(it should have a half moon shape when u remove the sensor from the cam pos/oil pump drive. if the half moon is damaged or missing u must replace the cam pos/oil pump drive, and yes it is timed with the engine. wot i have done is try to locate where the half moon was on the drive it usually leave a trace of where it was. now index where the half moon is at remove hold down bolt and remove the driver assy. install the new drive, clock the half moon shaft to match the one u just removed once u get the half moon shaft where u want it and the oil pump rod alines and the whole housing is down install the hold down clamp. now to get rid if that check engine lite youll have to plug a scanner in and look at the live data adjust the cam position till u have plus or minus 2 degrees

I ahve a 1959 johnson 50hp v4 it makes a funny grind noise when i go wot and then dies out wont start again


Check and make sure that your flywheel has not come loose. That would cause the noise and if it is loose it will mess the timing up and cause it to die. If it is loose then remove it and make sure the half moon key did not break.

Troy bilt tb320bv wont start. only two months old.he cord won't pull out completely like it used to and it won't let me start the thing any longer. It is like something is jammed in the system.


It seems to be a usual problem with troy bilt trimmers and leaf blowers. There should be a half moon piece of keystock that holds the flywheel on,sometimes its known to sheer off. Could also be one of the keepers that hold back the plastic disk for the cord comes loose,it gets in a bind. Either way,you have to open up the case and see whats going on.
