Using a 7/8" wrench to hold the shaft, loosen, but do not completely remove, the hex nut and bell washer on the left end of gear shaft. Lightly tap the hex nut to dislodge the ball bearing from the right side of frame before removing the hex nut and bell washer from left end of shaft. Move the gear shaft to the right and slide the friction wheel assembly from the shaft. Remove the six screws from the friction wheel assembly (three from each side). Remove the friction wheel rubber from between the friction wheel plates. See Figure 20. Screws Follow the first four steps of the instructions for servicing the auger belt. Pull idler pulley up and lift belt off engine pulley and friction wheel disc. See Figure 17. Back out the stop bolt until the support bracket rests on the auger pulley. See Figure 18. Slip belt between friction wheel and friction wheel disc. Remove and replace belt. Reassemble following the instructions in reverse order. Friction Wheel Rubber Hub Screws NOTE: The support bracket must rest on the stop bolt after the new belt has been assembled. See Figure 18. Friction Wheel Plates Figure 20 14 • • Reassemble new friction wheel rubber to the friction wheel plates and hub, tightening the six screws in rotation and with equal force. Position the friction wheel assembly up onto the pin of the shift rod assembly, and slide the shaft through the assembly. Reassemble in reverse order. If unit is to be stored over 30 days, prepare for storage as follows: • • • Off-season Storage Remove gasoline from carburetor and fuel tank to prevent gum deposits from forming on these parts and causing possible malfunction of engine. Run engine until fuel tank is empty and engine stops due to lack of fuel. Drain carburetor by pressing upward on bowl drain, located below the carburetor cover. NOTE: Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable alternative in minimizing the formation of fuel gum deposits during storage. Do not drain carburetor if using fuel stabilizer. WARNING: Never store the machine or fuel container indoors where there is an open flame, spark, or pilot light such as on water heater, furnace, clothes dryer, or other gas appliance. • • WARNING: Drain fuel into an approved container outdoors, away from an open flame. Allow engine to cool. Extinguish cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and other sources of ignition prior to draining fuel. Fuel left in engine for extended periods deteriorates and will cause starting problems. • • Wipe equipment with an oiled rag to prevent rust. Remove spark plug and pour one ounce of engine oil through spark plug hole into cylinder. Cover spark plug hole with rag. Crank engine several times to distribute oil. Replace spark plug. Follow the lubrication recommendations found in the Maintenance Section. Always store the snow thrower in a clean, dry area. NOTE: When storing any type of power equipment in an unventilated or metal storage shed, care should be taken to rust proof the equipment. Using a light oil or silicone, coat the equipment, especially any chains, springs, bearings and cables. 15 SECTION 8: TROUBLESHOOTING Problem Engine fails to start Cause 1.
