RE: 717 Engine stalling problem/ Snowthrower belt

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to let you guys out there know that after replacing my old electronic ignition that I still had the same problem. I decided to take apart the carb and rebuild it and ever since it's ran like new. Now, I just have to figure out why my snowthrower belt will not stay on. I'm on my second belt this season. This belt that I put on today is a little tighter than the other one was.I'm in hopes that this will help. But does anyone have a drawing of the way the belt is suppose to go from the snowthrower to the engine? I have the pto that mounts to the front of the frame. KS

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
