There are two v-belts as you face the front where the snow goes in, the nearer one is broken which controls the rotation of the front blades. There are two tensioning bolt-like things which keep the belt on the main pulley.
Thats all there is. Dealer could not find part number, he recommending either bringing in the belt or the entire snowblower.
Please be more specific... You specified "You will need to loosen belt guides to replace belts." The screws/bolts that hold the belt guides appear to be very stuck! How best do you recommend that I loosen them? wd-40 or some other spray?
Knowning the belt numbers is worthless, if I cannot lossen the belt guides. Thanks for the worthless information. I guess I will figure out how to loosen the belt guides on my own. This service was only somewhat useful and somewhat useless. Happy holidays!
