Your belt may be the wrong length. It is too long. Where did you get it from?

Replaced a broken auger control cable on my 536.881400 snow thrower, but now the auger engage lever cannot be fully pulled back.

possible that is the problem
see if you can move the end of the cable closer down the handle (control lever) to give it enough length
check how you fitted the cable and the spring may fit in a hole on the other side of where you put the cable end

I have a Cub cadet my 1018 with a 42 inch deck my iderlerspringcameoffneedtoknowbothbothplaceoneachendtoreconnect

Go to your local cub dealer with the modle number of the deck. They have diagrams that will show how to connect the spring correctly. If the spring came off it may have lost tension or part of the hooks on the end of the spring broke off. I would get a new spring. I have also seen the the idler pully get sloppy and not keep the idler pully properly lined up with the other pulleys.The belt will then ride up off the pulley and the spring will come off.

I have a 30" husqvarna snow blower. 1 year old. The auger belt is really loose and keeos slipping off the main pully and smoking like crazy. I replaced with a new belt and still had the same problem. Any...

Page 17, figure 23 of the manual shows a "Clutching Idler Arm Bracket" that should take up slack. Does it have a broken spring, or is it seized because of ice or rust? The very top of the page does mention that the belts aren't adjustable, but why else is the idler arm there if not as a tensioner?

The drum on our Neptune Dryer has stopped turning. It still heats up, but the drum just won't turn.

If the heater and blower work then th eprblem is with the drum turning system
This includes the motor ( which we will presume works because the blower does),the belt (Item #25 in the Cylinder, heater and bulhead diagram) and a spring and idler pully (Items 20 and 21 in the Base, Motor, and blower diagram)
Most likely problem is the spring broke releasing tension that halds the belt to the motor pully and drum. Second most likely is the belt has stretched.
You need to open the unit to determine where the problem lies.
Here are diagrams and parts listing for that machine.
Good luck!

How to adjust the Toro 826 snow thrower

Belts will have spring tension on the idler pulleys.
Both traction and auger control cables will also have cable length adjustments to cause the travel of levers or idler pulleys to tighten belts. Adjustments are commonly located under the control panel/levers.
