How do I change auger belt on mastercraft 12/33 Snowblower from 1980s? Thanks ike@muskokaland.com

Too many pins in the way & it seems it should be easier than pulling everything apart

Yes usually, you will have to remove the roll pin with the proper size punch to remove belt. Post a pic. of the unit so I can see what exactly your looking at. if this info does not help.

SOURCE: auger on my snow blower won't turn.

First take a look at the shear pins they will be located on the augers going thru the auger and auger shaft, if they look ok then you need to take the belt off, with the belt off try to turn the im peller by hand. If the impeller does not turn then you need to look to see if something is stuck in the impeller or in the auger. If nothing is stuck in between anything then I would have to say it's going to be the gear box. If the impeller turns then look to see if the auger is turning also while turning the impeller. If the auger doesn't turn then it's probably the gear box. If it does turn then you have an issue at the pulleys

Hi, The blower spins at full speed? If it does the belt, pulley, and shaft are good. Look at the shaft from the fan to the gear box while it's running and that shaft should be turning at the speed of the fan.
If the blower spins at full speed and the auger doesn't the most likely problem is the worm gear transmission from the blower shaft to the auger shaft.
A good way to visually inspect this is: With the machine turned off and the spark plug wire unhooked go to the front and try to rotate the auger by hand. If the gear box is good you will only be able to move the auger less than an inch. If the box is bad you will be able to move the auger a lot farther. While you are there recheck your shear pins.
You can also remove the blower drive belt and have someone turn the pulley by hand while you watch the auger. Put resistance on the auger with your gloved hand. If the box is good the auger will move smoothly in you hand. If it is bad, it will ****, move roughly, or stop.
While the other person is turning the pulley and you have some resistance on the auger look closely at the shaft running from the gearbox back to the blower. On some models there is a connecting sleeve and the roll pin that connects the sleeve to the shaft and gearbox will break.
If the gearbox is bad, it will have to be replaced as a complete unit.
Was this helpful? If you have any other questions, please ask.

SOURCE: I have a vintage Yard-Man Snowblower (11/33

Although your model indicates it is probably a 1993 model, You should be able to remove the belt cover. There you should find two pulleys. The small one is a two piece unit remove the outer half and slip the over the lager pulley and on remaining small pulley half, re-install outer pulley half and belt cover.

MTD doesn't list the 313 anymore but the info is from the 1995's 315 model.

The impeller is turning but the blades are not. Belt seems ok


Depending on your make of snowblower, At the impeller there is usually 1 or 2 shear pins or bolts circled in red. If the impeller and the impeller shaft are turning but the augers are not, the gear may be stripped inside the gear box circled in yellow or the keyway may have sheared between the auger gear and the auger shaft.

Either there is a belt or a chain off, or the linkage became disconnected or there is a pin sheared. Take one of the three. If you have power spinning like you said then those are your choices! Best of luck to you. Hope you beat the weather!

I have a 8/26 mastercraft snowblower Model No.


Have you checked all belts and belt tensioners? If so, you will have to tip unit up and take bottom plate off of unit. The drive system consists of a rubber lined wheel that makes contact with a friction plate once handle is depressed for drive. As you change gears you can see rubber drive wheel changes position in relation to friction disc to change speed. If belts are good, I would look in this area for problem. These rubber lined dive wheels do wear out and are replaceable. Also, on some models you can adjust further. Hope this helped. Happy wrenching!

Electric snowblower. Paddle stops when it hits snow. Is there a pin that may have snapped from overload? Belts are good and tension spring seems ok. Thanks!


Yes there are, usually what is called a sheer pin. They are designed to break before anything else is broken. They are found on the auger shaft. You probably can't see them because they are broken and have fallen out. Inspect the auger shaft where you should find holes where they go. Go to a shop or where they sell parts and get the proper sheer pins. If you can't find any, ordinary bolts will work just as well. Install them in the holes you have found on the shaft (I hope). If the bolts are still there on the auger shaft, then there in something else wrong obviously. You say everything looks ok, so that is surely the problem. I hope this helps you even just a bit. Best regards and good luck.
