Question about Craftsman 16" High Garden Tractor Snow and Dozer Blade
Great machine! I bought it second hand but the owners manuel ignores the most important part...replacing the drive an auger belts! I now have the replacement belts but damned if I can figure out how to put'em on. I've taken off the bottom plates and the belt housing in front of the engine. That should be all as far as access but the drive wheels are so close together I can't "slip" the belts into place....help!
Ok I did it! First, remove the semicircular housing in front of the engine. This will expose the two pulleys. You do have separate the auger section in the front. There are four bolts (two on each side top and bottom) that secure it to the engine section. The bottom two are in slots so you only have to loosen them. Once the top two are out you just tip the handlebars back and they separate. What you end up with is a pulley on each section.
The larger of the two belts goes on the back pulley, pass the tension wheel on the inside before attaching to the rear slot on the engine wheel.
Attach the smaller belt to the pulley on the front section and then join the two sections back together making sure the belt passes it's tension wheel in the same configuration as the other. Then just screw every thing back together.
This is definitely a two man job as this is one heavy machine.
