I tried to find info on your snowblower. Sears Canada does not have the info that Sears U.S. has. I did make a phone call and found out your snowblower was made by "Technics". I did a search for that name and found nothing relating to snowblowers.

Steerable Trac.

Hi Dave.
I know this is an old thread but I was wondering if you solved your problem. I have the same machine and I think that you may need a new drive disk. It is a very simple job to do except if it is cold when you work on the machine. The cold always adds to difficulty level. Also If you want the manual I can scan it and email it to you.
If you still have this machine and it is still not working, I could sure a few of the parts from it as mine is now down.
