How do i get the A/C belt off of my 1996 caravan


If it is a 3.0 engine, you should have an idler pulley you have to loosen to remove the belt. You loosen the bolt in the pulley then turn the adjusting bolt.

How do I install brass bushings in a sproket bracket on QA-42A snow thrower for a cub cadet


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.(Note ,on some machines the pulley can be adjusted by loosing and move pulley towards the belt, than retighten.)
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.and also you can check the shear pins in the augers if the above is not the problem.
hope this helps,,any comments welcome,thank you. @@

Timing belt


TIMING BELT & SPROCKETS R & I
NOTE: Some procedures may differ slightly due to engine
construction.
Removal
1) Remove all necessary air ducts. Position No. 4 piston at
TDC of compression stroke. Align timing marks. See Fig. 2. Remove fan
and fan shroud. Remove belts. If necessary, remove radiator and
splashguard.
2) Prevent engine from rotating and remove crankshaft timing
pulley retaining bolt. Remove upper and lower timing belt covers.
Remove spring from tension pulley. Loosen adjusting bolt and move
pulley toward water pump. Remove timing belt.
CAUTION: Ensure pistons are at TDC when rotating camshaft or damage
may result.
Inspection
1) Handle timing belt carefully. Avoid twisting or kinking
belt. Do not allow belt to become contaminated by water, oil, dirt or
other contaminates. Inspect belt for cracks or damage. If necessary,
replace.
2) Measure tension pulley spring length and force. Spring
length should not exceed 2.76" (70.2 mm) and spring force should not
be less than 197-347 lbs. (27-48 kg).
3) Replace tension pulley spring if not within specification.
Installation
1) Pull tensioner fully toward water pump side and
temporarily tighten retaining bolt. Ensure No. 4 cylinder is at TDC on
compression stroke by rotating crankshaft until keyway aligns with
mark on front crankshaft seal housing (12 o'clock). Rotate camshaft
until timing mark on cam gear (arrow) aligns with mark on upper
camshaft cover (notch). See Fig. 2.
NOTE: When timing marks are aligned as stated above, No. 4 piston
is at TDC on compression stroke.
2) Position timing belt over crankshaft sprocket, oil pump
sprocket, camshaft sprocket and tensioner in that order. Ensure belt
is positioned in sequence given and without slack between sprockets.
Loosen tension sprocket adjusting bolt allowing spring tension to
tighten belt. Tighten adjusting bolt temporarily.
3) Temporarily install crankshaft pulley bolt and rotate
crankshaft 2 complete revolutions in opposite direction of engine
rotation, until marks on crankshaft and front oil seal retainer are
aligned again. See Fig. 2. Loosen tensioner lock bolt, allowing
tesioner spring to fully adjust tension. Tighten tensioner lock bolt.
4) Install timing belt covers. To complete installation,
reverse removal procedures. Tighten all bolts to specification. See
TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS table at end of this article.

I need to remove my auger on my snow thrower, but I am not sure how to remove the auger bearings to allow the auger to come out.


There should be bolts to remove on each outer end of the auger shaft, and the blower shaft must be removed from the rear bearing/pulley at the rear of the blower housing. Look for bolts to release the entire blower housing from the engine/drive section. On out Sears unit, there is a nut on the end of the engine crankshaft that allows the two drive belts to be removed. If you don't have the service manual, be sure to make notes of each part as it comes off of the machine (there will be many). Check the condition of each belt and also the rear bearing that the blower shaft came out of. The gear box at the front end of the blower shaft must come apart to release the auger shaft. This is not a job for the faint of heart! Good luck!

How do i get the power steering belt off so i can


chryslers usualy use a spring loaded belt tensioner (Idle pulley) first put a long wrench on the nut/Bolt head holding the pulley on and pull it to loosten,
the bolt is left handed, so if it unscrews turn the other way
If this doesn't work look for a bolt in the block and a curved slot this has to be loostened, some have this lock bolt, some do not, so try twisting the pulley bolt first
If youv'e got a very long pull handle for your socket use it, the bolt's spring is very strong, if not, slip a length of pipr over your normal socket wrench
Should be easy once the pulley slacks off,
be careful of that spring, loosten your grip and it'l smack you a good one

Problem Installing Drive Belt on Delta DP350


Be prepared for sticker shock on maintenance. The belt is not a standard "V" belt and a replacement one is $40.
I was not pleased when trying to replace the belt. Like you said, there are no instructions in the manual, and it is not a simple job. The pulleys are made from cheap casting metal and one of my pulley halves cracked and came off from one of my attempts.
The secret is to not remove the rear pulley with the spring, but the front one. Then when you go to put the belt back on, put it around the rear pulley first and pull hard on the belt so that the spring in the rear opens up and the belt comes forward. Then you can easily reseat the front pulley half with the belt in place.

John deere 316 belt


I am so far from expert...me answering this surprises me. However, I can...JD Small Engines has plenty of diagrams for the 316. Here's how a old single lady changes the belt on her 85 316. There is a bolt running from side to side of a black metal box...on the very front at the bottom of the mower below the grill. If you pull that out, just the front of the mower deck separates from the mower..slip the belt in and around the rear central pulley. Put the pin back in with the belt now around the back pulley and outside the part where the pin goes back in. Get a pneumatic tire jack and jack up the right (your left as you face the front of the machine) front pulley..try to catch the pulley armature or bolt so you don't torque the pulley. This releases the tensioner...thread the belt on the right pulley and reach up under the grill and put the belt over the front engine pulley....now all that's left is to get the belt over the left pulley. At this point, I remember having to either lower the deck to the ground or raise it up all the way...to the ground, I think as it wasn't already in the correct position. Once you start fussing with the left pulley, you will see it is spring loaded and easy to force the belt over if the right pulley is still on the jack. Really important to get the belt inside all the belt guides and lowering the deck before you frustrate yourself with getting the belt over the last pulley. When all is done, release the jack and everything tightens right up.
