Thanks for the info. I took off the plastic part and found that the transmission belt was broken. I'm on the way to get a new one, could you help me with instructions on how to install it properly? Also, would you know the part number?
I found the whole diagram for it online last year, but now i can't find it anywhere. i called my local part store and they tracked it down from the model number i gave them(I'm in Canada, so that might be the problem). So now i just need to put it on. Its a Craftsman II Snow King 8.5/27.
Is putting it on its end going to let any gas out? i know i tipped it up the other way to get a better look at the jam out of the auger and eventually gas leaked out and filled the garage with fumes.
I have it on it's end and have the belly pan off. I tried to slip the belt on the big pulley, but there is a piece in the way. It's on the right hand side of the first picture, right above the big pulley. The first picture was taken from the bottom of the machine and the second from the top looking down.
