Q:

snow thrower 536884200 Craftsman Craftsman 20

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I agree with your assumption; it does sound like the main jet within the carburetor is blocked or partially blocked and will need to be cleaned.

I would pull the carb from the engine. With a full can of carb cleaner, a wire brush, and a bread tie wire to poke through and clean the main jet; I would recommend a very thorough cleaning. Start by taking off the float bowl. Douse it very liberally with carb cleaner, and undo the pin for the float, and remove the needle and float. Clean them very thoroughly with the wire brush and carb cleaner. Pay close attention to the seat the needle sits in and clean it well. Once clean, start brushing the carb bowl and body and make sure you get all the varnish out. It may take three or four brushings with carb cleaner dousing in-between. From there, take the straw of the carb cleaner and shoot carb cleaner through any little hole or passageway of the carb. Shoot out the throat of the carb and poke the main jet with the bread tie wire. You have to make sure you get everything the first time, if you leave anything behind, it’s likely to reclog once you have it reassembled.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

A:

The fuel/oil mixture for that engine appears to be 24:1. At one time there was a sticker on the machine that stated that but I would bet with this being as old as it is, that sticker is long gone or worn off.

If you happen to need any parts for it, you can go HERE with the model number. For the engine, you will need to use the engine model number (found on the engine itself).

Q:

sears snow thrower #536.884200 flange --item 14 --does it have a metal bearing in it?

A:

I know that problems like this can be very frustrating. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I was able to do some research. On the parts diagram #14 is a bearing assembly, so if is wobbling badly then is most likely a bearing missing. I hope this will help.

A:

Yes, key number 14 is the bearing assembly (pt 577023MA). What you see is the bearing housing with the actual bearing gone. You can order a replacement HERE . On the other side there is a similar bearing assembly (pt 583459MA), you may check that side to see if there is any slack and if so, go ahead and replace it as well.
