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

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

The snowblower starts great, but then it will not shut off. have to snowblow my neighbors, waiting for it to run out of gas


Try lowering the choke all the way below Turtle Speed. With any luck this will shut the snowblower off.

How to chage the belt on anny arctic cat snowmobile with diamond drive


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.

Trying to find a Throttle replacement part for Log splitter MTD Tucumseh HS50


Hi Karen,

You might try www.jackssmallengine.com and search by MTD-you'll need some serial/model numbers but they tell you where to find them.  It did list one MTD logsplitter.  Good luck! Nancy

How do I change the belt on a Eureka Victory model 4335 b? I have the belt.


You need a phillips screwdriver. Undo the two screws, either side of the height adjustment dial. Lift off the cover. Now you should be able to see instructions and the old belt..

Remove the brush roll..put the new belt in place around drive pulley and brush roll pulley.. reinsert left end of brush roll first then pull to stretch the belted end back into it's place.

Replace cover.

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.

I have an old (10-15 yrs) Craftsman Snowblower, equipped with a Tecumseh Snow King 4 cycle, 5 hp engine that hasn't run in over three years due to having been stored. I emptied the tank and put in fresh...


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..
