42" Snowthrower Alignment Washers

Recommended Posts

BMinor8806
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.
