Question Snowblower drive problems

Hi, Have a Murray snowthrower mdl. G2914000.
When the drive handle is activated the machine moves OK in all positions.
When the drive handle is released the machine does not stop foward motion for several long seconds. The owners manual does not cover the Drive clutch/auger adjustments in enough detail.
Help, thanks

This will likely be one of two possible problems. Either the return spring has broken or the clutch cable has been over adjusted. If you have not adjusted the cable then it is safe to assume that the spring has broken. This spring is located in the drive train area. If you remove the inspection pan (4 screws) you will likely see a portion of the spring laying on the pan once removed. It will be verty difficult for me to explain exactly where the two mount points are but...on the left side fairly deep into the drive train area. Have someone actuate the clutch lever while you are watching the movement and perhaps this will give you insight as to where it goes. By the way, the spring part number is 313919 (old) 53818 (new). This spring is only about 1 5/8" long. Good luck and let us know how you make out.

Any luck yet in determining where your trouble is?
