Toro 824 belt replacement

I'm replacing the stretched belts on my snowblower. I've got the new belts over both the auger pulley, and the drive pulley, however I don't seem to have enough slack to get them around the engine pulley.

Any ideas? Do I need to un bolt the engine and "tip" it? Thanks!

If that has a Tecumseh engine, they usually have "split" pullies. remove the center bolt and the pulley halves will slide off.


Pulley halves are # 6, 9 & 11. Only have to remove the first 2.

OK...I got the belts on...there wasn't a split pulley, however I just unbolted the engine and tipped it to get the belts over the pulley, then simply bolted it back on.

BUT....Now I realize I need to replace the friction disk...that WAS the culprit the whole time.

Any ideas???

get the numbers off the snowblower. Usually on the back panel between the wheels. something like 38041. Then go to Toro.com and click on "homeowners parts", then type in your model number. You will get a parts list with part numbers and you can order direct from Toro. Or take the info to your local small engine shop. Doesn't have to be a Toro dealer to get the friction disc.
