Description:
It is a genuine item that is supplied directly from the original manufacturer for use with snowthrowers. The friction disc is an important component of the drive mechanism that helps to propel the equipment forward. Unfortunately, over time it may wear out or get damaged eventually requiring a replacement. If the friction disc is worn or damaged, the snowblower will move slowly, erratically or not move at all. Please make sure to check the diagrams of your model for the correct location and application of this part. Keep in mind this high-quality assembly is made of durable metal and is sold individually.

Removed worn parts and reinstalled new parts. It took about 1 hour including readjustment of cable actuating friction wheel. The compartment where the friction Disc assembly is contained is very tight requiring the plate be inserted at an angle before inserting pivot pins in their proper holes. Reinstalling the friction wheel was simple with the bearings removed, after the friction wheel was in place the reinstalling the bearings was easy.

Tool Type:
Snowblower
Parts Used:
Wheel Assembly - Friction - 984-0042C
Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Socket set, Wrench Set, Snap ring pliers
Friction wheel was 30 years old and needed replacing
Removed skid plate by removing four 3/8 hex head screws
Remove 1/2” bolt in the ends of the drive shaft
Using snap ring pliers remove or slide to the center of the driveshaft the retainer ring for the chain drive
Slide driveshaft towards the chain drive pulley and out of the barring .
You should have enough room to remove old friction wheel off the opposite end of the driveshaft. If you need more room to remove the actuator remove the cotter pin and separate amateur.
At this point your Removal is done.

Install new friction wheel make sure to insert the actuator and slide the driveshaft into the barring and in stall the bolt. Now slide the chain drive pulley back over to where it belongs. Slide snap ring over to retain the chain pulley in its place. Put the other bolt in the end of the driveshaft. Make sure the actuator is working properly before reconnecting the amateur with the cotter pin. Make sure snap ring is in the retaining grove. If all is operating correctly replace skid plate. Tighten all bolts.... now wait for the next snowstorm

    Same as original part
    My 25 year old snow blower lives again. After the local lawn and garden shop told me it couldn’t be repaired I watched a couple YouTube videos and decided I could do it myself. The replacement part matched perfectly. I was up and running in about 1.5 hours.
