SNOW THROWING STARTER If the starter Is frozen TIPS For maximum snow thrower efficiency in removing snow, adjust ground speed, NEVER the throttle. Go slower in deep, freezing, or wet snow. If the tracks slip, reduce forward speed. The engine is designed to deliver maximum performance at full throttle and should be run at this power setting at all times. Most efficient and will not turn engine: • Pull as much rope out of the starter as possible. • Release the starter handle and let it snap back against the starter. 13 After the snow throwing job has been completed, allow the engine to idle for a few minutes, which will melt snow and accumulated ice off the engine. snow blowing is accomplished when the snow is removed immediately after it falls. • For complete snow removal, slightly overlap each path previously taken. Use more overlap in deep snow to prevent overloading. • The snow should be discharged down wind whenever possible. In windy conditions, lower the chute deflector to direct discharged snow close to the ground, where it is less likely to blow into unwanted areas. Clean the snow thrower thoroughly after each use. Remove ice and snow accumulation and all debris from the entire snow thrower, and flush with water (if possible) to remove all salt or other chemicals. Wipe snow thrower dry.

CAUTION: Do not allow grease to contact friction wheel and disc drive plate. 15 LUBRICATION OIL RECOMMENDATION • Hex Shaft and Gears - Hex shaft and gears require no lubrication. All bearings and bushings are lifetime lubricated and require no maintenance. NOTE: Any greasing or oiling of the above components can cause contamination of the friction wheel. If the disc drive plate or friction wheel comes in contact with grease or oil, damage to the friction wheel will result. Should grease or oil come in contact with the disc drive plate or friction wheel, be sure to clean the plate and wheel thoroughly. NOTE: For storage, the hex shaft and gears should be wiped with 5W-30 motor oil to prevent rusting. See figure above. • Auger Gear Box - The auger gear box has been factory lubricated for life. If for some mason lubricant should leak out, have auger gear case checked by a competent repairman. Only use high quality detergent oil rated with API service classification SG. Select the oil's viscosity grade according to your expected operating temperature: NOTE: For extreme cold operating conditions of 0 ° and below, use a partial synthetic 0W30 motor oil for easier starting. NOTE: Although multi-viscosity oils improve starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils will result in increased oil consumption when used above 32°F. Check your engine oil level more frequently to avoid possible engine damage from running low on oil. Change the oil every 25 hours and at the beginning of each season. • Position the snow thrower so that the oil drain plug is at the lowest point on the engine. Remove the oil drain plug and the oil fill cap/dipstick. Drain the oil into a suitable container. Oil will drain more freely when warm. ENGINE • Replace the oil drain plug and tighten securely. LUBRICATION SPARK PLUG Check the crankcase oil level (see figure below) before starting the engine and after each five (5) hours of continuous use. Add S.A.E. 5W30 motor oil as needed. Tighten fill cap/dipstick securely each time you check the oil level. • Make sure that the spark plug is tightened securely into the engine and the spark plug wire is attached to the spark plug. • If a torque wrench is available, torque plug to 18 to 23 foot pounds. • Clean the area around the spark plug base before removal to prevent dirt from entering the engine. • Clean the spark plug and reset the gap periodically at .030 inch. NOTE: Oil level must be between full and add mark 16 Z_ CAUTION: Always disconnect • Loosen the carriage bolts and nu'_, securing the scraper bar to the auger housing. the spark plug wire and tie back away from the plug before making any adjustments or repairs.

If you think your carburetor needs adjusting, see your nearest Authorized Craftsman Service Center. Engine performance should not be affected at altitudes up to 7,000 feet. For operation at higher elevations, contact your Authorized Craftsman Service Center. IMPORTANT: Never tamper with the engine governor, which is factory set for proper engine speed. Overspeeding the engine above the factory high speed setting can be dangerous. If you think the engine-governed high speed needs adjusting, contact your nearest Craftsman Service Center, which has the proper equipment and experience to make any necessary adjustments, TO ADJUST OR REPLACE Be sure the spark plug is clean and free of foreign material. Check the electrodes gap (see figure below) with a wire feeler gauge and reset the gap to .030 inch if necessary. TO REPLACE: THE • If you need a new spark plug, use only the proper replacement spark plug (See page 14). SPARK PLUG NOTICE: This spark ignition system meets all requirements of the Canadian Interference-Causing Equipment Regulations. • Set the gap to .030 inches. • Before installing the spark plug, coat its threads lightly with oil or grease to insure easy removal. NOTICE: This engine complies with all current Australian and New Zealand limitaions regarding electromagnetic interference.If you have difficulty starting your snow thrower, you may need to adjust or replace the spark plug. Follow the instructions below. • Tighten the plug firmly into the engine. • If a torque wrench is available, torque the plug to 18 to 23 ft. - Ibs. Replace the spark plug if the electrodes are pitted or burned or if the porcelain is cracked. 21 • If you do not want to remove gasoline, use fuel stabilizer supplied with unit or purchase Craftsman Fuel Stabilizer No. 33500. Add fue ! stabilizer to any gasoline left in the tank to minimize gum deposits and acids. If the tank is almost empty, mix stabilizer with fresh gasoline in a separate container and add some to the tank. ,/_ CAUTION: Never store your snow thrower indoors or in an enclosed, poorly ventilated area if gasoline remains in the tank. fumes may reach an open flame, spark or pilot light from a fumace, water heater, clothes dryer, cigarette, etc. To prevent engine damage (if snow thrower is not used for more than 30 days) follow the steps below. SNOW THROWER STORAGE Always follow instructions on stabilizer container. Then run engine at least 10 minutes after stabilizer is added to allow mixture to reach carburetor. Store snow thrower in a • Thoroughly clean the snow thrower. • Lubricate all lubrication points (See the Maintenance section on pages 14-16). • Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws are securely fastened. Inspect all visible moving parts for damage, breakage and wear. Replace if necessary. safe place. See Waming above. You can keep your engine in good operating condition during storage by: • Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly before painting. • Changing oil (See page 16). • Lubricating the piston/cylinder area. This can be done by first removing the spark plug and squirting a few drops of clean engine oil into the spark plug hole. Then cover the spark plug hole with a rag to absorb oil spray. Next, rotate the engine by pulling the starter rope fully out two or three times. Finally, reinstall spark plug and attach spark plug wire. • Cover the bare metal parts of the blower housing auger and the impeller with rust preventative, such as a spray lubricant. NOTE: A yearly checkup or tune-up by a Craftsman Service Center is a good way to insure that your snow thrower will provide maximum performance for the next season. ENGINE STORAGE OTHER Gasoline must be removed or treated to prevent gum deposits from forming in the tank, filter, hose, and carburetor during storage. Also during storage, alcohol blended gasoline that uses ethanol or methanol (sometimes called gasohol) attracts water. It acts on the gasoline to form acids which damage the engine. • If possible, store your snow thrower indoors and cover it to give protection from dust and dirt. • If the machine must be stored outdoors, block up the snow thrower to be sure the entire machine is off the ground. • Cover the snow thrower with a suitable protective cover that does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic or vinyl. IMPORTANT: Never cover snow thrower • To remove gasoline, run the engine until the tank is empty and the engine stops. Then drain remaining gasoline from carburetor by pressing upward on bowl drain located on the bottom of carburetor (see figure below). Bowl Drain while engine and exhaust areas are still warm.
