The Sponge: I did the repair, also replaced the drive belt on the unit. However at times the snowblower still simply cuts out on the drivetrain. No pulling of it what so ever. It runs and all just wont moved until I shake it a few times good then it goes. Almost like the wheels lose total power. Any idea what could be causing this? I was sure its the drive disc but turns out its not since I just installed a new one. thanks.
NAT MORRIS: your videos are very helpful, keep up the good work. Maybe you can help me out. After taking the tires off my 24 craftsman ( 536-886440) it seems the axle shifted less than a half inch and I can not get the right side tire back on and the axle will not turn, nor engage when the engine is running. How do I free up the axle so I can move it side to side?
Scam Buster: Great video, You make it look EASY, i just replaced the friction wheel on a 20 year old Murray (DynaMark). What a pain in the A__, After watching you video, I knew what I was getting into. Good Job. Keep it up..
James Rubenzer: I have never liked craftsman other then tools there engineering is junk dumb design ....cub cadet all the way
joe lyons: Excellent and helpful videos. I need your help...I have a ariens st724 snowblower and my friction disk wont separate from the friction wheel and tires are locked and wont spin..I ve watched many of your videos, but no mention of this problem.. I loosened the adjustment cable to free up the friction disk, but nothing works... what say you? thanks donyboy73
pei broker: very good information dony...
Ralph Lattie: Great Job! And I condemn the one who gave a thumbs down
Ray Murph: Great job you helped me so much with my older Ariens sno thro thanks for takeing the time to do this.
ray geyer: Dhati Dozier , i apparently am having a similar problem. But (hate to ask this) which is the "jack shaft"?
Dhati Dozier: @donyboy73 You are very good at this. so I want to ask. I have a NOMA Snow King 27" 9hp Model #: F2794010 Thanks a lot. I replaced the disc no problem. however it did not solve my issue. My problem is no forward motion. Reverse speeds 1-2 is strong but will not drive forward in speeds 1-6. it makes a faint grind noise when you press the drive control but no forward movement. Thanks, D.
Delta 9 Medical Consulting: Thank you so much this is an excellent VIDEO on repairs.
Stuart Smith: HMMM - I gotta get dirty /greasey to get this one done, looks a lot like my 1997 Noma/Murray 24 incher -- I often wonder , does anyone ever Retread -rerubber the old Friction discs????
Jim Crabtree: Dony,
I cant really see anything else to remove or loosen.
I can send you pics if you could help.
donyboy73: you more than likely have to partially remove the other jackshaft to isert it in, hard to say without seeing it
Jim Crabtree: I must say your videos are excellent.
Watching this video I have found a situation on my blower. I have a older Murray/NOMA 27"SnowKing on a 8.0 Tecumseh engine.
MY FRICTION WHEEL SHAFT is in the top of the box with the chain going over the top in stead of below as in your video when in this upright position. I have removed the shaft and replaced wheel rubber. I NEED HELP I can't find enough room to get it back together. Any ideas? A video? Jim > firstname.lastname@example.org - I am desperate !!
saigon7276: I have Noma snow blower similar like the one in video but with tracks. But my snow blower has a problem with the thing next the friction wheel always come off as i change the gear. Even I put 2 washer after I put the thing back to the bar holder. It still come off as I change the speed. I always stop before change speed. Do you have any idea to keep it on without go off all the time?
thank a lo.t
rogie75: lol. Great helpful video honestly. I like the introduction of the brand new ratchet with model number. That helped the most. Could you please identify the brand of gloves you are wearing and the model number of them as well.
Cory Farren: Your JET ratchet wrench looks exactly the same to my Stanley ratchets
