Not sure how to replace the belt in my MTD, Wards snowblower
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

to change a belt on a arctic cat snowmobile with diamond drive. your owner's manual will tell you to use a tool to let the clutch faces separate and so on. there is a much eyeser solution. there is a signal alen key bolt that holds the clutch to the diamond drive assembly. put this alen key in your tool kit and when ever you need to change the belt just undo this bolt remove the cluch from the diamond drive place belt on cluch and with minimal force replace the clutch on the shaft on the diamond drive then tighten the bolt.
Hi timmmarquez, I have the same snowblower. That plug is for a light if you want to install one. Can you smell gas when you try to start it ? If you have spark you can iliminate the kill switch. Make sure you have a clean spark plug to (not a weak spark). Good Luck.
You are on the right track. Do check the air cleaner, and also check your oil level and condition. If the oil's been in there for 3 years, I'd change it. Also pull the carb off the motor, and get a spray can of carb spray cleaner and clean the bowl, needle valve, around the float, and in any ports, jets, etc. Drain a bit of the gas out and check to make sure you've got gas flowing, that it's clean and not blocked.Look in the carb bowl...make sure it's not full of sediment, water etc... Spray all the carb linkage and make sure it's all working freely. While you're at it, use the spray cleaner to spray off the tip of the spark plug, and use some fine sandpaper to clean up the electrode. Then pull the motor thru with the spark plug out , but still attached to the spark plug wire and check for spark. If no spark, replace with a new one. If it's an older style ignition, it may even have contact points that youll need to clean and regap..
