42" Snowthrower Alignment Washers

Recommended Posts

I have a Simplicity 42" snowthrower model #: 990745. I need to know how many washers there are between the drive pulley for the blower and the tube which the shaft goes through to drive the chain. I took the pulley off and lost them. These are the washers with the keyway cutout in them. Please let me know, thanks. Brandon

It appears to be 7, three on sproket side and four on pulley side. Here is OM/PL http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/default.aspx?filename=heCBEN8arJ7rE3Cvh5kbp796Dq

The parts manual, http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/default.aspx?filename=heCBEN8arJ7rE3Cvh5kbp796Dq shows 4 washers. The schematic shows the needle bearing outside of the washers which is wrong. The special notched washer part #8061012 is now #1729259. I use as many as necessary to have the best belt line up. Note that this model blower has the pulley hub toward the chain, the setup used for the 2 pulley hitch. If you're using the single pulley hitch, then the pulley hub should face outward.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
