Question and Answers

Q:

removal of wheel-track drive on a model 247885690 sears snow blower

A:

Thank you for your question.

I should be able to help you with removing the wheel.

  1. Tip the snow blower onto its nose.
  2. Loosen the two track adjusting nuts. Refer to the image below.
  3. Remove the wheel nuts. They are key number 11 in the second image.
  4. Slide both wheels off the shaft with the track. Most of the time the shaft is rusted and it will take time to remove the wheel. I recommend spraying the shaft with WD-40 and try turning the wheel back and forth.
  5. Reverse steps to reassemble. The first image has the instructions for adjusting the track.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
