36" single belt snow thrower

Recommended Posts

Lot's of luck...When I got my 3212H the blower it had no belt on it. Got a new one but it took me quite a while to get it on correctly. The thing twists and turns and if you don't get it on correctly the blower turns the wrong way! I suggest starting with a new belt and keep the old one for a spare cause blowers get clogged up with stuff and the belt sure takes a beating! Also make sure the front PTO pully set screw is tight where it goes on the engine shaft. Mine got loose while I was using it last Winter and it went rolling away in the snow! Must have been funny to watch me digging around in the snow to find it but I did!

Fellas Just a bit off topic, but i am getting ready to mount my snowblower for the Boston snow season :( I had a brain fart and was wondering which hole the idler pulley goes into for the blower. I know there is 1 hole for the mower and 1 for the blower they are one ontop of another and right now I have the idler on the top hole; is this the correct one? thanks john

If the 3212 is like my 2110,make sure you have the 2 fingers that go on each side of the drive pulley.They are belt guides,and it'll keep throwing the belt without them.

Again, a little off the topic, but what the heck. I've got a 36" blower for my 3210V, but I managed to smash the idler pulley. Thing is, for some reason the idler pulley I smushed is 5 1/2" in diameter compared to the 4 1/2" diameter pulley that is standard. I put the 4 1/2" pulley on my tractor, but even after adjusting it the belt slips. My Simplicity dealer can only find a cast iron pulley that is 5 1/2" in diamter for just over $30. Does anyone know of any place I could find a steel pulley? I'm thinking it might be cheaper to buy a new belt? Thanks, Bob

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
