I have a MTD Snowflite 8hp/24" snowblower (tecumseh motor) that blew an auger belt yesterday. Has anyone replaced belts on a similar unit.
Do I have to take the front off of it to replace the belt? any help would be appreciated.
I own a store brand unit that I beleive was built by MTD. I changed the belst a couple of years ago. It split in front of the rear wheels. I think I took a couple of bolts at the top and loosen the ones at the bottom. Then lay the engine section backwards on the handle.
I actually got MTD to send me an owners manual, and that is exactly what you need to do!
you take the tope bolts out and loosen the bottom ones and the snowblower basically falls apart into 2 sections. take a couple of guide bolts out and you have full access to the belts.
Thanks for the response.
