craftsman snowblower drive clutch

jakersMarch 6, 2008

Hello I recently purchased a craftsman 2 stage snowblower. It worked fine for the most part, but now it wont come out of gear when I let go of the clutch lever (keeps moving forward) I flipped it up and seen that the clutch plate is not disengaging with the drive wheel when I let go of the drive lever. So I checked the tension of the springs and clutch line and it all seems fine. I cant seem to find an adjustment on the clutch plate if there is any. I can push down a little bit on the clutch disc and it disengages but when i let go is just engages again. I could wait for the repair man to come fix it under warranty but I'm eager to get it working as he wont be able to look at it for another week. Any help I could get would be great.

Is the rod from the lever to the shift mechanism bent? If you start messing with it you may void your warranty.
