Ariens 8526 goes back when put in fwd speed selection Original Message Feb 16, 2014 9:29 pm
Here in MA clearing snow from my driveway I noticed the bottom end of my speed selector shaft (or rod or connector- not sure what to call it) danglingling on the ground instead of being attached to a rod coming out of the rear plate. I know little about how snoblowers work so i took it back to my garage and discovered the bottom end of the speed selector can be reconnected to the steel rod coming out of the housing with a cotter pin. So I inserted the first cpin I found and continued on with my snoblowing. But then I discovered that my fwd speeds put me in reverse and my rev speeds ran me fwd. 1. How do I adjust this so I everything is back to normal and my fwd speeds go fwd and rev speeds go backwds? 2. when adjusting that wearbar under the leading edge of the augurbox should it be even with the augurbox or stick out beyond the abox- and if so how far? 1/4,1/2 inch? I just discovered this website and it looks great.
