Question snow blower

hi i just bought a 3 yr old snow king snowblower 5 hp tecumseh engine and it worked fine up untin i ran into a stump not very hard but anyway the auger stopped turning so i took the cover off and it looked to me that one of the belts had come off. so i attemted to put it back on but i have done something where as to when i start the snow blower i use to have to pull the lever to make the auger turn. now after i put the belt on the way i thought it went the auger autmatically starts turning when i start the snow blower and when i pull the lever now the auger stops.ugg what have i done maybe the belt is just wore out and that is why it looked like it was off HELP PLEASE!

Check your belt again sounds to me that you've just put the belt on the wrong side of the idler pulley.instad of loseing the belt when you push the lever to tighten it,so as to make the auger turn,it losens it up instad.

Possibly the belt initially jumped off the idler and you have the idler on the inside of belt. Most idlers that act as a clutch are called backside idlers ie:they run on the back or outside of the belt. If your idler doesn't have a vee shaped groove for the belt, then it is a backside idler.
