The snow blower was running fine. I placed it in neutral and roller it down a gradual incline side walk to my basement driveway. When I tried to go back into gear, the shifting shaft into the gear box will no longer rotate. It will not go into any of the 6 forward or 2 reverse gears. I pulled the lower covers. aLL of the belts and chains look ok. the axle spins freely and the blower auger works fine. Any ideas?

There are no "gears," just a rubber tired wheel which gets shifted onto different spots on a spinning disk. With the bottom plate off you should be able to see it all. Look for whatever it is that will not allow the shift mechanism to move the wheel.

Hmm, it appears this model is a little different.

Looks a lot to me like a disc and throw bearing. Maybe he had a cable or hard linkage break or separate.

I would expect that with the bottom cover off, he could see what was stopping the shift lever from moving. How to fix may be a bit more complicated, but first we need to know what is stopping that shift from moving.
