If you will only settle on a diagram then you can go to your local dealer, they can help you with that. If you wish to take a chance on trying this repair yourself then I will try to guide you thru it. A drive belt will eventually have to be changed whether it be one year old or ten years old. They wear out usually because of adjustment. Look at the area where the belt is located . there is a way to remove it, a screw that loosens enough to remove the belt, or the removal of a screw and pulley. It's very hard for me to say exactly without being able to see for myself. You have to be my eyes here. Look around the area , and don't get discouraged . You can do it. GOOD LUCK.
I couldn't find anything online on how to do this so I had to figure it out myself. I drew a picture hope it makes sense.
1. Lift seat
2. Remove battery clip and battery
3. Remove metal battery receptacle, you will see the 3 drive belt pulleys throw the battery hole
4. Pull pulley 2 towards pulley 1 and run belt around all 3 pulleys as shown in the attached picture.
This is for a Scotts 1642. Picture yourself sitting on the mower looking down at the deck. Starting at the tractor pulley, the belt runs from the right side of this pulley to the left side of the tension arm pulley, around this pulley to the left side of the right hand side mower blade pulley, around this pulley, across the deck to the smaller left hand side idler pulley, then up to the left hand side mower blade pulley, around this pulley to the second (larger) idler pulley, around this pulley and back to the left side of the tractor pulley. If you make a small sketch of the deck pulley arrangement it will be easier. Keep in mind some of the pulleys are for the "V" side of the belt and some (The tension arm pulley & larger idler pulley) are for the flat side of the belt. Be sure the belt is not twisted and lays in a continuous circle with the "V" side of the belt on the inside before you start.
Sounds like a clogged carb which is a common problem for snowblowers due to they set around more then they get used and gas turns stale and clogs carb. Most of the times the problem is in the bolt that holds the carb bowl on it should have 2 or 3 small holes in it. Check that the holes are all open and clean if this does not help you will need to remove and clean whole carb.
I don't have a diagram but it shouldn't be to hard. You will have to drop the deck. Then when installing the new belt remember to always place the inside of the belt (V) into the pulleys and the outside of the belt (flat side) up against the larger idler pulley. When you have the belt on properly it should be snug. If you have excessive play you need to try a different routing around the idler.
Good luck and let me know if this helps. Thanks roundo4
if the pulley looks like a "V" note that it goes towards the inside of the belt. if it looks flat. It will be towards the outward side of the belt. if the pulleys are all the same hieght,and its only one belt, it will be going around all pulleys. hope i helped you, the best i could with out being there to do it for you.
