Hey Guys...Thanks again George for the new addition to the forums here....Anyways I just got a Noma snowblower from a friend of mine for $25. It has an 8hp Tecumsh engine and a 27" Path. He has thrown alot of parts at it from belts to a new friction disc and everything. The problem is that it will move in 1st gear but as soon as its put under a load such as going up hill it stops moving and the higher up in the gears you go it doesnt move at all. Any ideas on what might be happening or what I should check first. I will try and take either some pics or video sometime this week, but am just looking for some suggestions right now....

Some pics or video would help a lot. I don't know how the drive system is setup on them. It isn't a shear bolt that is partially sheared is it?

Sounds like for whatever reason, there is not hardly any pressure of the rubber friction wheel against the disc. Broken springs, or mis-adjusted linkages most likely.
