Be sure the vent plug is free of grease in order to relieve pressure. Plastic Bearings Figure 14 SECTION 8: SERVICING YOUR SNOW THROWER Shave Plate And Skid Shoes WARNING: Disconnect the spark plug wire and ground it against the engine before performing any repairs or maintenance. The shave plate and skid shoes on the bottom of the snow thrower are subject to wear. They should be checked periodically and replaced when necessary. Refer to Figure 6. Engine Refer to the separate engine manual packed with your unit for all engine maintenance procedures. To remove the skid shoes, remove the six carriage bolts, belleville washers and hex nuts (three on each side) which attach them to the snow thrower. Reassemble the new skid shoes making sure that the bolts and washers are reinstalled correctly. Also, make certain the skid shoes are adjusted so the flat surface is sitting level on the ground. The skid shoes can be rotated on this machine 180° so both flat surfaces of the skid shoe can be utilized for wear. Augers/Shear Bolts The augers are secured to the auger shaft with two shear bolts and hex lock nuts. Refer to Figure 14. If you hit a foreign object or ice jam, the snow thrower is designed so that the bolts may shear. If the augers will not turn, check to see if the bolts have sheared. Two replacement shear bolts and hex lock nuts have been provided with the snow thrower. For future use, order kit number OEM-710-0890 which contains four replacement shear bolts and accompanying hex lock nuts. To remove the shave plate, remove the carriage bolts, belleville washers and hex nuts which attach it to the snow thrower housing. Reassemble the new shave plate, making sure the heads of the carriage bolts are to the inside of the housing. Tighten securely. IMPORTANT: NEVER replace the auger shear bolts with standard hex bolts. Any damage to the auger gearbox or other components as a result of doing so will NOT be covered by your snow throwers warranty. 13 Belt Removal And Replacement Wheel Drive Pulley WARNING: Disconnect the spark plug wire and ground it against the engine before performing any repairs or maintenance.
