Q:

craftmen snowblower 247885570 7hp

A:

Thank you for your question.

I have looked over the drive system and I do not think the key number 52 will cause the drive to be intermittent. I recommend tipping the snow blower onto its nose and remove the access panel. Then turn the tracks. If they bind at all, you need to pin point where the binding is taking place and lube that area to free it up. Your model also has triggers for steering. If the cables for the steering are not returning, the track will not drive. Work the trigger while watching the other end. The dogs should disengage and engage easily. If the dogs are not engaged, the track will not drive. If all of these checks are ok, I recommend cleaning the friction pulley with break cleaner. If the friction pulley has oil on it, the drive will slip. I have also used sand paper to scuff the surface to help grip the friction disk harder. I have added an image below that might be helpful in the repair.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the snow blower.

Q:

snowblower 247885570 7hp want to locate track& access drive part# 52

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry I do not understand what it is you are looking for. I think you are working on the drive. To access the drive tip the snow blower on to its nose and remove the access panel on the bottom. Once the cover is removed you should be able to access all of the drive components.

Please reply with more detail so I will be able to give you more details.

Q:

I have a snow thrower #247885570. It has a plastic key to it & I want to know if I can use a mental key instead. Or does it only take a plastic key. Please help

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. The engine needs the plastic key. The reason is the key keeps the kill wire from touching ground. If a metal key is used, it will complete the path to ground and the engine will not start. If you have lost the key, you can order replacement keys from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct . The part number is 430492.

I hope this is helpful. Please reply below with more details if you need further assistance.
