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?

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

Replace snowblower belt


Locate the two top auger housing fastening bolts and remove. The auger housing will tilt forward and then lift the housing off of the bottom 2 bolts/bushings. You will need to support the traction frame as it will try to fall onto the handles.

Auger belt keeps coming off when engaged with new belt or old


Put a straight piece of metal or wood on the top pulley and slide it down. Both pulleys have to line up if you slide it down and it hits the bottom pulley you will have to replace or shim the pulley (top or bottom) with washers so they are perfectly lined up
