One more snoblower question

Recommended Posts

goatfarmer
On the B210 snowblower I'm installing on the Simplicity 2110,there is a rod that pushes on a pivot,which pushes a spring loaded rod,to engage the idler and tighten the belt.What keeps the belt engaged? Does the pivot go overcenter,or is there something else that holds tension on? Mine pushes down on the idler,and engages the belt,but releases when you let go of the rod.Out of adjustment? thanks! kenny L

Ken, I have an Owner's manual for the 42" Snow Thrower. It says the spring should be compress to 3" when disengaged. If there is somewhere to fax you a copy of the manual I can do that. The 42" manual is different than the 36" that is on this web site. Russ

Thanks,guys.I have the spring that goes to the frame in place. There must be an adjustment on the other spring(the one that's on the rod)I'll have to look at tonite. slowly,but surely... kenny

The spring on the threaded rod has a set of jam nuts on the top that you use to adjust it. Note that you want to get it only slightly over-center, so that if you hit something like a chunk of ice, frozen newspaper, rock, etc. it will kick back enough to disengage itself.... I think the adjustment is described in the manual I linked in... Kent The foot-draggin' Clubhouse Custodian...

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
