Question about Garden

1 Answer

My 10 hp snowblower is not yet 5 years old and it stopped going forward. The axles turn but the wheels don't. It goes backwards o.k. I've looked through the owners manual and am a little confused as to what the problem is. I would appreciate your suggestions. Clive

Check the keys on the axle and if they are okay check to make sure the chain that drives the wheels is not too loose on the sprockets.

My old Jacobsen Imperial 26 only goes a few feet and the drive stops. I put it in reverse to break the locked wheels free. It will then go forward for a few feet, then I have to repeat this procedure


Sounds like you may have too much slack in the drive Chain. Pull the bottom cover off and look. Usually there is a way to move the shafts to tighten the chain.

Snowblower won't go into gear after replacing wheels


Do you still have the original wheels? You should be able to see some mechanism through which the axle was "keyed" to the wheels so when the axle turns, the wheels turn with it. The new wheels don't appear to have such a mechanism. Take one new wheel off and compare it carefully to one of the old wheels. You should be able to spot the difference.

I've got all the wheel nuts incl locking nut off my Golf back wheel, but can't get the wheel off, what am I doing wrong?


At a guess, you've got alloy wheels, assuming so, this is a common problem.

1) Make sure its on an axle stand, not just a scissor jack, and give the inside of the wheel a good old whack with a mallet, if you don't have a rubber hammer/mallet. Hold a piece of wood against the wheel and hit that.

or

2) Put the wheel nuts back on, just finger tight, then roll the car backwards and forwards, with luck the weight of the car should do the work for you.

When you put you wheel back on, put some copper grease on the hub to stop it sticking again.

I removed, re-inflated and reinstalled back right tire on my Poulan 42", 18 hpr riding mower, now it won't engage in gears and move forward or backward. I've compared the reinstallion with...


there is a slot on the axle for a square key to fit in.
when you took off the wheel it might have fallin off.
look around for a little square piece of metal.
like a little bar.
put it in the slot and put wheel back on.


don't forget to vote for me.

thanks

How much forward and backward slop should there be on the mainshaft 1st gear when i turn it back then forward on the clutch side


When you've got the clutch off and you're turning the mainshaft by hand backwards and forwards, it feels like a lot. I've never measured it but it seems like it's about a half turn or so. What you are doing when you turn the mainshaft backwards and forwards with the transmission in gear is you're moving the dogs of the first gear clutch dog in the transmission back and forth in the slots that it the dogs fit into. They have to have enough room to slide into the slots but when it the engine is running. the dogs go all the way to the backside and stop. Unless you're having a problem with the transmission, don't worry about this back and forward movement.

Good Luck

Hear a clicking noise when backing up and forward


if you hear that clicking noise whether going forward or backward,,it's most likely a bad cv joint on your axle going bad,,or bad. you'll need to replace the axle it's coming from. just have someone listen to the noise while you're going forward or backwards while turning the wheel in motion to determine which axle is bad! hope this helps!!

Snowblower Treads not turning


Check the steel axles that go through the plastic wheels.What happens is the axles rust and swell not allowing the track wheels to turn freely.its a problem overlooked by all the so called small engine repair shops.I have removed the wheels and sanded the axles to remove the rust.I greased the shafts and the wheels move freely.There is a provision on the wheel for a grease fitting.I carefully drilled the holes and with some strong waterproof glue thredhed a fitting in each wheel.
