This is caused by a fault in the belt alignment or run as we call it, find out if the Auger is loose from a bad bearing and wobbling or drive pulley is the problem, check for any serious amount of play in either end of the belt connection.

How to replace belts on a snowblower and removal of auger from housing.


hello,, How to replace the auger drive belts on a MTD,Yard Machine,and other two stage snow blower,that don't allow enough room to slide belts between the pulleys.
1.Tilt machine up on front end to remove the bottom frame cover,there should be six screws to remove,tilt back up right.
2.Remove the chute crank from the left handle and from the shoot.
3.Remove the black belt cover,there should be three screws.
4.Remove the support guide bracket,that the cable is running through,and remove cable end from idler pulley arm.
5.Remove belts from upper pulleys. (hint if there is a bolt holding the pulleys on it is easier to remove the bolt and slide the pulleys off to be able to remove the belts.)
6.Remove the six bolts and nuts holding the front half to the back half together,slide front part out to be able to remove old belts and install new belts. (hint make sure you get the new belt under the belt keeper on the bottom.)
7.Reassembly in reverse.
8.Set of two belts 0.312x34.75, part number 954-040B, $30.28

This first part is for replacing belts.
To remove the auger assembly completely follow these steps.
1.After removing the belts,and separating the two halves, remove the bolt holding the pulleys on,pay attention how bolt comes off and the way the washers are on be sure and put back on the way they come off.
2.Remove the pulleys and make note how they come off of the adapter pulley.remove pulley note how comes off.
3.Remove the bolts and nuts on the side of the housing.
4. Pull the auger out and place on work bench,making note how the end parts come off.
5.Remove the shear bolts to get and slide augers off, be sure and mark which way they turn as not put back on backwards.
6.You can access the auger gears by removing the bolts,to make repair.
7.also check the ball bearing in the rear housing where the auger shaft goes through to make sure it is not egg shape,if egg shaped needs replacing.will cause belts not to stay on and jump off the pulleys.
8.Check the end hex flange bearing (the plastic piece) to see if it is out of round,if is replace it.
9.Also you can download your manual if you don't have one depending on your model and number.
hope this helps,DON'T FORGET THE 4 THUMBS UP,,,any comments welcome,thank you.

Auger belt on snowblower keeps breaking after about an hour of use, please help.


Try removing the drive belt and turning the auger by hand . If there is no problem it will turn freely by hand but if it feels tight check the auger tube for bends or dents that will restrict the free movement of the shaft. The next thing to check is the pulleys If they are "V" belts then check that you have the correct belt or the correct pulleys for the belt. A "V" belt is fitted correctly when the top most width of the belt is about 1/16 " above the rim of the pulleys . IN other words it just sticks out of the pulley. The pulley sides have to be smooth and not stepped as this creates different running speeds for different sections of the belt and that generates heat. Imagine a duel tyre wheel where one tyre is 2" larger than the other but both are running on the road . As there are different circumferences there fore different distances covered in one revolution Then one tyre is being dragged along. The same applies if the pulleys have steps in the sides from wear.. If it turns freely but feels lumpy then you will need to replace the bearings . Check inside the auger tube as there may be some thing like rope /cloth or wire jammed and acting like a brake.

I have a vintage Yard-Man Snowblower (11/33 Snowbird) an I have a product number that is 313 960 655. J222B (difficult to read due to very vague colour). I am looking for information of how to replace the...


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.

I have a Husqvarna YTH20B42 and the snowblower keeps throwing the belt...what size belt do I need to order? I can't see it on the belt...Serial # 122906B002271


Its likly the belt is OK the problem is there is on idler pulley that has an adjustment so when the augers are engaged it puts force on the belt witch tightens and makes every think turn and when disengaged every stops turning. There is always an adjustment involved with this. If you can remove the belt then with the mechine not running of corse engage the drive and watch how it fucnitions then look for the adjustment that would move the idler closer or further away from the belt

How do i change the auger belt on a honda hs 70 snowblower?


Remove the auger belt housing cover 4 bolts (10mm), if you are lucky, you can take the belt out, or just cut it. The slide the new belt between the auger and driving pulleys. there is a break pad under the auger pulley, so have someone engage the auger handle and put the new belt on the auger pulley. Or you can remove 10 12mm bolts and separate the auger and engine. Even though you have remove more bolts, it is easier.

There is a service bulltin on this I have not seen this yet, Ill paste it for you to look at .
this was issued dec 22-2003 you would think that it would have shown up as a problem by now.


UNITS AFFECTED: Model Number(s): Serial Number(s):
38620 240000001-240999999
38621 (Int'l.) 240000001-240999999

SUBJECT: Traction belt jumps off the pulley.
SITUATION: Incorrect pulley alignment causes the traction belt to jump off, usually when the drive is disengaged or as a hill is crested.
CORRECTION:
1. Remove the belt cover, engine belt guide and the bolt securing the crankshaft pulley.
2. Remove the auger brake assembly.
3. Remove the crankshaft pulley and the auger belt.
4. On the left side of the machine, remove the hair pin cotter from the speed control link and slide the link out of the pulley pivot assembly. The traction belt can now be removed.
5. Shorten the pulley half nearest the engine (PN 106-7334) shown in Fig 1. Grind or machine 1/8” (.125”/3.2mm). from the hub end of the pulley. The new finished length of the pulley half should be 1.07” (2.7cm).
6. Chamfer the bore to ensure the pulley fully contacts the shoulder on the crankshaft. You can send the pulley to an outside machine shop if you do not feel that you can modify the pulley in house.
7. Reinstall the pulley with a new traction belt.
A. Chamfer edge after grinding/machining.
B. Remove 1/8”.
C. Masking tape used as a reference line.
8. With the engine off, engage both the traction and auger levers and inspect the alignment of both the auger and traction belt idler pulleys (Fig. 2). Since we have moved the crankshaft pulley it may be necessary to bend the idler arms slightly to center the belts. Adjust as needed.
9. Install the engine belt guide and test operate.
10. Install the belt covers.
