Canadiana/Noma 5 hp snowblower question

Hey all
I need some info from all the great people out there. I've got a Canadiana/Noma model 526 snowblower with no motor. I've got a 5 hp motor to put on it but what I don't have is the drive and auger pulley for the motor. They want 85.00 up here for the pulley and quite frankly I don't want to fork that much over for a pulley that I can probably pick up from the bearing and pulley store. Now the dilema is that my local small motor depot doesn't have a pulley in stock for me to see what the sizes are so I can do some measurements.
Hopefully somebody out there has or knows someone who might have a model like that and hopefully they could either give me a measurement or picture.
I must clarify one thing right now is that I'm not cheap by no means but when other pulleys for different machines are only around 30.00 or so I can't justify paying this outrageous price.
I sure hope someone can help me so I can get this machine mobile again.
Thanks very much

Hey snoman,

Do you have the correct belt on it? If so, you should be able to determine the pulley size by the amount of slack in the belt around the crankshaft.

That's my next course of action....I'm going to go out and buy the belts that the machine requires and go from there.

Canadiana snowblower

Hey Snowman... I have the same snowblower. 5 horsepower with manual start. The pulley is 6 1/2" in diameter and uses a 1/2" belt that's 14" long. I have the complete machine except the auger pulley. I had to cut it to get it off the shaft in order to restore the machine. Now I am having a hard time finding a replacement. Aside from spending the $85.00 for a new one. It was suppose to be a winter project as a gift for a fellow worker. Now I have ground to a halt. The gift is going to cost me big time. Any ideas on the replacement pulley besides the $85.00 one?

Still tinkering after all these years... Don

I haven't seen snoman in years. This thread is almost a decade old.

Pulleys are available from lawnmower shops, bearing shops, ebay, grainger, etc... You should be able to find one your size fairly easily.
