Question snowblower Model # 536881750

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. The engine on the snow blower can be used on other equipment. Some products do not allow access to both side of the engine. That is why to have so many drain plugs. The drain you should use is towards the back of the unit. I posted an image below that contains the information for draining the oil. Just click on the image to enlarge it. I found a video that shows how to replace the starter rope. Click here to watch the video. The video shows a generator but the steps are the same.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. The small wire on the magneto is the kill wire. If this wire is shorted to ground, the magneto will not produce a spark. To determine if the magneto is ok or not you need to remove the kill wire. Then check the engine for spark. If you have spark, the kill wire is shorted. If you do not have spark I recommend replacing the magneto.

If the electric starter is not working, you can try to repair it first. Most of the time, they are just stuck. With the starter unplugged, remove the starter from the engine. Then try to turn the gear inside the motor. If you can turn the gear, carefully plug the starter in and check the operation. Be sure to keep your hand away from the gear while it is plugged in. If the starter works, go ahead, reinstall it on the engine, and check the operation. If it still does work, the starter has to be replaced. Here is a link to order any parts you need.

Q:

I have a Craftsman snow blower model number 536881750, how do I replace the augers?

A:

If you mean how to remove the auger from the auger housing, follow these instructions. To remove the auger, 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.

If you mean how to remove the auger from the shaft, remove the shear pin and turn the auger, gearbox, and impeller so the auger you want to remove is on top. Pour rust buster on the end of the auger shaft and tap the center of the auger with a hammer from top to bottom. This will help the rust buster to penetrate through the shaft.

You need 2 large pipe wrenches, preferably 24 inch. Put the auger assembly down so it is setting on the ground. Place one pipe wrench on the auger you are not replacing to take the load off the gears in the gear box. Place the other pipe wrench on the center hub of the auger you want to remove near the gearbox. Use a 1 1/2 inch pipe around 2 feet long on the handle of the pipe wrench and turn the auger on the counter clockwise. Once you break it loose the auger will unscrew off the shaft.

You should put the auger back on and replace the shear pin. Reverse the pipe wrenches and remove the other auger. Clean both shafts and coat them well with anti seize grease before installing the auger assembly back into the auger housing.
