Why is my 8.5 hp troy built snow blower leaking oil while under strain


Make sure the crank case is not over full when not running and make sure the crank case breather is clear.

Snowblower will not throw snow as far as before.


two things to do. One, get the carb service and have them check the governor.

Two, have the auger belt replaced.

The snow blower stopped going forward and backwards. It is a sears Craftsman and has been working excellent. It just stopped.


The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn. In other cases the cable from the hand lever to the belt drive breaks or comes off.
To look at the belts and inspect the operation of the cable you remove the cover (usually plastic) in the middle of the snow thrower.
Your operator's manual will show you how to remove the cover and check/change the belts. If you don't have a copy you can get the manual through managemyhome.com
You will need the model number off the snowblower. It is usually located on the bottom right hand corner of the frame (from the handle side). The model number looks like 247.123456.
The belt closest to the to the engine drives the transmission. This is the transmission drive belt. (Your operators manual will show you the location and how to remove the cover if you are unfamiliar with your snow blower)
With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the belt. You should only be able to depress the long side 1/2 inch or less. More than that the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced.
On some older blowers you can adjust the tension pulley, but most made in the last 15 years, you can't. The belt may be frayed on the edges or glazed causing it to slip (it is shiny on the sides of the belt) It may be torn and broke completely.
You can get parts for you Craftsman and most MTD made models through searspartsdirect.com. With other makes you can get parts through jackssmallengines.com
If you are unfamiliar with repairing machines you can get your snow blower repaired by taking it to your local Sears. They will have a technician troubleshoot and repair the unit.

My MTD 10hp auger will not turn. I adjusted the auger cable by tightening the bolt on the handle. I disconnected the spark plug and checked the shear pins on both sides of the auger. They are both still...


Yes there are 2 belts one for the drive and one for the auger. If you remove the cover on top that is located between the engine and the auger housing you can check the belts. The auger belt has come off the pulley or is broken. Hope this helps you out. Best regards and good luck.

I have a troy-bilt squall 2100 snowblower that wont start. Primer bulb doesnt seem to do anything. Use of starting fliud in the air intake will get it to start briefly. Removed carb bowl and there seems...


I share your frustration. We just had our first snow fall of the season and my Troy Bilt Squall 2100 would not start or do anything. The snow blower is well maintained and does not have 2 hours use. I use 0-30 synthetic oil and installed fresh gasoline. It is simply maddening to have plunked down close to $500.00 and have a useless snow blower. Trying to get through to Troy Bilt's help line is next to impossible.

My troy built 210 6.75 hp mower self propelled mower doesnt pull


remove the front black plastic plate that is stamped self propelled and replace the wheel drive belt that attaches the engine pulley (above blade) to the transmission pulley (found under the cover). When you buy the belts, pick up two or three as I seem to go through a couple per season. Hopes this helps

My troy-bilt 8.5 horse 26 inch wide snowblower wont move anymore.


Take the belt cover off that covers the drive pulley on the engine. You should only have to loosen two bolts. Inspect the belt to see what it looks like. I am not sure if it drives a gear box or if it turns a friction wheel that drives the wheels. If the belt looks good check for shear bolts that might have sheared off and replace them.

Snow blower gets bogged down in snow.


It sounds like your engine is running lean, see if you can adjust the high throttle mixture on the carburetor (if possible at all). If there is no adjustment possible, it may be the carb is clogged and needs some service. Try cleaning it or find a new replacement carb for it.
