Actually, I took all the steering gear back off the machine to get it back to where I started from to make this simpler. the problem is that only the right wheel (from the operator's position) is driving, the left is not. the pin in the drive shaft is there, as is the klick pin on the end of the axle. I fear the problem is the assembly inside the cog of the Shift Assembly Steerable Drive shaft. I did take this apart and look inside, and it appeared to be fine, so maybe it is where the chain cog connects to the shaft is now no longer connected.

I have forwarded the information concerning your snow blower to the manufacturer to see if they have any idea what might be going on. Given the situation I would have to look at the machine to figure out what is going on. You may want to consider having a technician come out to get the blower back up and working as it should be.

As soon as I hear something back from the manufacturer I will post that information here on this thread.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
