I have a 10 hp 29" Murray snowblower that stopped moving when the clutch is engaged. Machine is in vg condition otherwise and has not done much work. Both forward and reverse are dead???
Thanks for your help!

Model # is 629108X5

I just removed the bottom cover and found a drive pin sheared on the axle. Problem is that the broken stub does not come free from the axle when hit with a punch and hammer.

Does anyone know if it is screwed in the axle or should I get rougher with it??

Thanks in advance.

It's a grade 8 bolt it should just punch out make sure that you have it alined correctly with the hole in the sprocket if it is off just a little it wont come out. The part number of the bolt is 01X193MA it is important that you use the correct bolt or it will just keep breaking. The bolt needs to have an un threaded section that is longer than the diameter of the sprocket hub you must use a lock nut. The bolt should be able to spin after you tighten the nut that is why the un threaded part of the bolt needs to be longer than the hub. If the bolt won't spin vibration from the engine will cause the nut to keep tightening and will break the bolt.

Many Thanks, Problem solved for under $1.

Funny thing, when I called the repair shop, they would not offer any advise, except to bring it in for an inspection and repair since they were could not diagnose the problem over the phone!

My manual shows a P/N 15x145ma for this bolt. Are they the same?

15X145MA is the lock nut. 01X193MA is the bolt.
