Ardisam Tiller Belt Replacement?

I have an Ardisam Earthquake Tiller with Front Tines. Has anyone with a similar machine mastered the skill of squeezing between the limited space behind the belt guard in order to remove and replace the belt?

I can get the old belt out, however it is very hard to access the pulleys and maneuver the belt into place with tensioner in place. Any help would be appreciated -- ie tools or additional part removal for better access.

Hello and welcome Don!

I don't believe I have ever seen this particular tiller, BUT... In general, most tillers have removeable belt guides that should be removed to gain access to the blet(s). Sometimes it is an entire plate bolted to the engine. You may also have to remove the tensioner pulley or whatever part or pulley is interfering with repair.

Stya tuned, maybe someone here has some specific info related to your machine that will help. In the meantime, I hope I helped a little. If not, I tried...
