Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others
I have an old Wards snowblower. I replaced the drive belt, but don't know if I installed it correctly. The blades turn without the bar on the handle being engaged. It doesn't look like the idler pulley is working correctly. Are there any diagrams available on-line?
The Model # 35153A/TMO K066B
Remove the housing with the machine off
The idler pulley is designed to push up against the outside of the belt between the drive and motor pulleys when disegaged the belt should look like a loop like a race track
engage the blade clutch and watch to see if it presses up against the drive pully and the motor pulley
their should be a spring attached to the idler arm and i believe the new belt is dragging a little
you should be able to move the belt with your hands ( it should slip freely) rod is engaged or it pulls the idler away
Either a spring causes tension when the rod is engaged or it pulls the idler away
Keep working with it until it is free you may have an adjustment on the spring tension or the linkage rod has an adjustment
I am sure you can do this without an diagram good luck
