Question about Garden
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.

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.

Testimonial: "Have not tried the trouble shooting steps yet. I does make sense to me and will try them when I get home. Hope it works. Getting a lot of snow."
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.
