Craftsman Snow Blower 536.887990, made 11/2002, how to adjust skids and scraper???
#1   Jan 28, 2015 5:57 pm
Been using this for 8 years and now I'm hitting the expansion joints on my driveway real hard all of a sudden. I think the side skids wore down and I'm not sure how to adjust the side skids and the rear scraper plate behind the front blades. Any tips on this? Just want some kind of guide to go by?

Also, I noticed that I do have an AC alternator with one lead coming off it, I think for a optional light, that I don't have. I would love to use this AC alternator to power the DV motor. I'm currently using the drill battery which is 18v.


Just want to say I've been using this for 4 years now and still working great!

I just picked it up. It's a Craftsman 536.887990, made 11/2002, with a Tecumseh engine.  I just went out and started it up, and tested that yellow wire with bullet connector with my Volt meter, and put it to AC volts. It read about 5 volts, but it was idling. I then put it to full throttle and it jumped to about 15 volts, hehe. So, it looks like that's the wire to use :)


How do I find he specs on the Tecumseh alternator I have in my craftsman 536.887990, made 11/2002, with a Tecumseh engine??? I want to know how many amps it puts out, etc...

The Tecumseh 18W AC is unregulated. Voltage will depend on current draw. ~18W will get you to 12V which is what you need. 20W is close enough. 27W will brown out... Flood lens with wide pattern is preferable.


Tecumseh alternator... The missing piece of information I want to know is how much current (amps) the thing
can put out???? I want to convert this AC alternator to DC with a 25A bridge to power a DC motor that will make the chute move electricly...
