Question about Garden
I have a 5hp 23'' Craftsman Snowblower which just had its traction belt break. When I opened up the bottom of the snowblower there was a loose spring in the bottom. I cannot figure out where it is supposed to go, but the treads still do not spin. It looks like one end would attach to the pulley which should cause tension on the belt, but I can't figure out where the other end would attach. Does anyone know?
Check the steel axles that go through the plastic wheels.What happens is the axles rust and swell not allowing the track wheels to turn freely.its a problem overlooked by all the so called small engine repair shops.I have removed the wheels and sanded the axles to remove the rust.I greased the shafts and the wheels move freely.There is a provision on the wheel for a grease fitting.I carefully drilled the holes and with some strong waterproof glue thredhed a fitting in each wheel.
