SOURCE: how to remove impeller from motor to replace

If it's a separate shaft, it requires a puller tool, but first you have to remove a nut that holds the impeller to the shaft. If the shaft is part of the impeller, meaning that it is a one piece fabrication, then there is nothing you can do about it. You haven't even stated where does this impeller come from, a washing machine, a water pump, etc.

SOURCE: toro 521 snowblower..nn replace gas line to carb,

Or, you can try the easy approach. Take a 1/4" bolt about 2" long and cutoff the head. Force the bolt into the old fuel line on the fuel tank side (after removing fuel tank), push other end into new fuel line, tape the lines together well with electrical tape. Gently pull from one side and push from the other until new section of line comes through. Just did this and it too all of 5 minutes.

Sounds like you coil is over heating after running a few minutes. The windings are seperating, then when it sools they make contact again. Try replacing the coil.

Snowblower....auger takes time to get going...like five minutes...it will struggle to start spinning then eventually warms up and is fine....whats the issue?


It is most likely your auger drive belts. There are two of them, and they need to be replaced periodically. Your manual should describe in detail as to how to replace the belts. Always start by removing the spark plug wire.
Improper gearcase lubricant could also cause problems. Your manual should tell you specifically what to use in the gearcase, and how to fill it. Also look for grease fittings on the auger and use a low-temp grease to service those fittings.
Lastly; behind the auger is the impeller shaft. Reach in and see if it wiggles. If it does, then have your impeller bearing replaced.

How do i remove the impeller from mycraftsman 1350 series 27" snowblower


Before I begin, this is a fairly involved process so if you dont have some mechanical experience you may want to pass it off.
First you have to split the snow blower so remove the bolts on the side of the case just behind the auger case.
25320447-e0sfnxd0aemnkmi0xvhhiizh-5-0.jpg

The three bolts just to the right of the tire must come off. Then the case will split apart. Stand the engine section against a table or something.
Tip the auger section up on its end so the pulley is facing up. you must remove the pulley by loosening the set screw or bolt on the shaft. This can be very difficult due to rust.
25320447-e0sfnxd0aemnkmi0xvhhiizh-5-1.gif

After you get the pulley off you will need to remove the auger assembly from the casing. You will first remove the bolts/nuts that hold the ends of the auger shaft to the side of the case. When those are off you will pull the auger shaft/gear case assembly out of the case. It will look something like this...


25320447-e0sfnxd0aemnkmi0xvhhiizh-5-3.jpg

Once that is out, you will be able to get to the impeller bolts or pins. If you have bolts simply remove the bolts and slide the impeller off the shaft. Again, this may be difficult due to rust and/or wearing of the shaft under the impeller. If you have pins, the pins will have to be pushed through with a hammer and drift pin smaller than the pins themselves. Then you can purchase new pins. These can be purchased at a local hardware store.

Once you replace the pins, put the machine back together.

Swisher 27" snowblower front impellers turn free


Hi Craig,

Most snowblowers incorporate "shear pins" between the motor and auger. A shear pin looks similar to a nut and bolt or pin that couples the drive to the auger - but it designed to break or shear off to prevent damage to the auger or motor in the event of a jam or overload. They look like these:

12_21_2012_2_20_37_am.jpg

12_21_2012_2_20_57_am.jpg

Only the shear pin recommended for your particular brand and model snowblower should be used. Under no circumstances should a regular bolt or other steel pin be used instead of a shear pin. Check your manual or consult with Swisher to determine the correct shear pin for your snow blower.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Snowblower stalls without reason and now makes a squeeling noise. craftsman 8.5 hp model 536.891851


Check the drive belts at the engine for wear or damage. It could also be a bad bearing at some point in the auger/impeller or wheel drive. Try to pinpoint the source of the noise and what you do that makes it squeal. Good luck!

My Craftsman 5.0 horsepower 5 speed forward, 2 speed reverse snowblower has a problem with the auger. After using it this morning working fine now the auger isn't turning. It's about 8 years old and has...


If the blower (impeller) turns and the auger doesn't there is a 90% chance you broke the shear bolts that protect the auger gear box.
toolboxhero_3.jpg
Look at your auger and you will find the bolts shown at the arrows in this picture are missing. Some snowthrowers will have two bolts and others like the new Craftsman will have four.
You can get new ones at your local mower repair shop, your local Sears mall store, or online at sears.com.
Use shear pins or shear bolts not regular bolts. The shear bolts are designed to break off so you don't tear out the front gear box.

How to remove the belt from craftsman snowblower model C459 52560 MFG code 1/055/3-0079


Unfortunately like many other snowblowers you first need to seperate the auger/blower assembly from the drive/engine assmbly. Pretty straight forward after that. Make sure you put belts on the right side of the metal tab that cleans the back side of the belts when running or you'll they'll cut in two the first time you engage the auger

Ariens snowblower impeller not throwing snow


Sounds like you have a broken or partially broken shear pin in the auger.Check along the auger[machine off]and see if there is what looks like a bolt anywhere along the auger shaft.If there is [and there will be] remove and inspect it and you will see why the auger is not working.Next time,never clean out a chute or auger while the engine is running,people loose limbs this way.
