LC, I don't have any experience with a Snowblower being from the South, But it seems like your key is not tight in the keyslot. I would try to peen the slot by tapping the slot with the rounded end of a small shop hammer to where it is a tight fit.
A small dab of Super Glue would probably work also, Just take it slow while peening it with a hammer if you try this, A little goes a long way! Maybe some will reply that is familiar with this particular problem, anyway hopes this will help, good luck.

Use green loctite especially for locking sloppy keyways, worn inner or outer bearing races to shafts, or sloppy seal bores. Any where that you need something to stay put. Sorry I cant remember the product number. I get it at Napa
