  1. Transmission / clutch

    Hello again . How do I get more responses ... ? Do I have to start another topic... ? It has warmed up & I tried to check & see if the axles are spinning they aren't. The drive side is turning & so is the break side but the wheels / transmission isn't engaging. It will shift into gears with minimal grind with the clutch engaged...? oil leaking out of the right rear . & I took pictures of that & the color of the gear oil on the stick Thank you for your help & if anyone reads this let me know if I need to open a new topic for a response. I have a feeling it's not good for the 414-8
  2. Transmission / clutch

    Well just got to look @ it, not for long. Clutch side seems to be rotating @ speed belt looks good from what I can see, it's not that old.Break side just skipping...? Is there a shear pin on the clutch side ? I tried to see the adjuster ran out of time & the manual has no good photos for adjustment. Ugh ! Storm coming & I'm sick-er. Family won't let me outside. I escaped long enough to fire it up & look underneath . Grinds gear without the clutch ( hit the shift by accident ) I didn't have time to pull tires, but I don't see the shaft turning with the 1/8" of space there. I stuck a shim in to feel it move nothing . Transmission is all I can think. Hope to feel gooder tomorrow on the meds now snow not supposed to start until noon-ish.
  3. My 1987 414-8 was blowing snow like mad. Then it started to delay engaging into gear. I would push in the clutch, shift let the clutch out & it took a few seconds to drive. I parked it when I was done, now I tried to run it & it won't move ... ? I haven't had time to really look into it. Any help would be appreciated. ( Belt ? hoping simple ) Fingers crossed or I'm working on it in the snow. Nowhere to heat it up here mom wouldn't like it in the living room ... Again ... Thank you .

  5. Snow Blower Belt routing pics

    Everything stops except the motor that's why I thought I sheered a soft pin like on a push mower. Can I tighten the clutch ... ? If so how ? The angle of your belt looks steeper then mine from the tension-er to the bell ... ?
  6. Okay it was hard to push until I adjusted it back a few turns because it seemed to hard . Now it pushes over easier but stays engaged . I will give it a few turns & see what happens ... ?
  7. Okay where's the trunion .. ? pics pls ... ? Oh ... & it seems that if I put the belt on the inside of the PTO it will throw off the belt alignment to the blower . ?
  8. Snow Blower Belt routing pics

    Being new to RS I'm not sure if I should post a ? here or start a new post ... ? So here it goes . I have the same thrower as You ( Sparky ) everything's hooked up right Belt, tension-er, PTO, etc ... The thrower won't throw snow unless I am in 6" of powder snow . Smaller amounts of snow dribble out just as wet snow does . This last storm it started to squeak & stop under a load ( heaver snow ) . I'm not sure but it seams like I sheered a pin or something . Motor is still @ high RPM everything else stops until I back out of the load . I hope this works & you can understand this ... ? Thank you GREAT SITE Happy New Year
