Question about Garden
Can't begin to get the wheel back onto the axle shaft,? Or wheel starts onto shaft but can't get lock pin holes to align to hole in shaft?
If your having trouble starting wheel onto shaft, feel for a burr on the end of the shaft. It may be so small you can't see it. Run a finger over the outer circumferance at the end of the axle shaft. It should be completely smooth. If you feel a bump, file the bump until you no longer feel it. A fine metal file or even an emery board (finger nail file) should do.
If you don't feel a burr on the shaft, do similar to the wheel hub.
If the wheel starts on but gets hung up at the lock pin hole, check for burrs at hole in the shaft and inside the wheel hub.

Hi, I figured out the problem. The gear transfer case between the augers must be broke. The auger spins slowly until it hits snow and then stops-- The discharge fan continues to spin fast. I will try to get a local handyman to fix it or else but a new machine, this one must be at least 15-16 years old.
I thank you for your help, it is a great service. ojohn

Many times moisture attacks the hexagon shaft that the friction disc assembly slides on. It slides from side to side on the shaft to create Reverse 1 & 2, and the other end creates 1-6 forward. With a wire brush and sandpaper, clean the rust from the hexagon shaft, at the same time lubricate the friction disc bearing with penetrating oil and with a soft hammer, tap gently until the assembly starts to slide on the hexagon shaft. After all the rust is removed and disc assembly is sliding, apply a light film of graphite grease on the shaft. You may want to re-lubricate on a yearly basis.

check the belt tighteners to see if they are sticking at a certain point, and not putting enough pressure on the belts. The other thing might be that the belts are stretched to the point where they may not tighten any more. Belts that work fine when it's warm out are harder and won't grab the pulleys as well in the cold...especially if they've been glazed from long use.
