Question and Answers

Q:

Why does the bolt keep sheering on the drive sprocket?

A:

Yes, by replacing the original bolt with a harder shear pin or bolt could cause damage to other parts. Was the bolt that originally came with the snow thrower the one to shear or was it just another same type of bolt that was installed that sheared? Was it replaced with the proper grade bolt and size? Does the sprocket have excessive play between the sprocket and shaft? Are the holes too large for the size of bolt?

The bolt is not normally known to sheer unless the wheels are being prevented from turning while the drive is engaged.

Important: Do not move the speed shifter lever while traction lever is down or it could cause the bolt to shear.
