Q:

Changing the belts my Craftsman Snow Blower Where does the long spring on the drive pulley attach? 917.881062

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I believe the long spring you are referring to is the idler traction spring, which is key number 1 on the 'Auger Housing/Impeller' schematic. The part number is 414557. 

The spring should attach to the traction bracket (key 40) on one end, and the drive idler pulley (key 2) on the other end. 

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

A:

I believe the spring in question will connect to the yoke bracket (key 29 in the photo on the link I've attached). There should be a little hole in the bracket for this spring to hook into.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

How do I replace the Impeller Hub on a Craftsman snow thrower?

A:

I wasn’t able to locate an illustrated set of instructions for this model. To remove the impeller, you will have to remove the auger and gearbox with the impeller.

Remove the auger belt and the pulley from the rear of the auger housing. Remove the bolts and then the bearing for the gear box shaft. Remove both bearings for the auger shaft.

Slide the auger toward either side of the auger housing so the shaft comes out of the side of the auger housing. Pull the loose side of the auger shaft forward until the other end of the shaft comes out of the auger housing.

You can then remove the auger, gear box, and impeller from the auger housing.

Drive the roll pins out of the impeller and you can slide the old impeller off the shaft. Reverse these instructions to install the new impeller.

If you require further assistance please resubmit question with more details. I will be looking forward to helping you again in the near future.
