I picked up this snow blower last winter knowing that it had a bad engine but also knowing that I had a good, 2 shaft ( extended camshaft) Tecumseh sitting under the bench; someone had taken the engine off and apart to see what it would take to revive the original engine, and put it back together.
They had also tried to run it with a plain engine without the extended camshaft and it did not work out/ so the PO bolted the original engine back to it and sold it.
I have the engine mounted and ready to run but there is something missing for the idler pulley/bracket for the belt that runs off the extended cam. there is a hole in the idler bracket where something obviously puts tension on it/ but being I bought it as a basket case I did not get that part,
I looked at the parts breakdown at Sears Parts direct, I wish I could zoom in/blow up the pic.
this is an 8hp (now an 11hp) 26" trac drive, model 536.885910 code 0262.
anyone familiar with these machines? or have one they could look at/take a pic of that part of the linkage?
I am ready for winter as I have my old standby Deere 828D but I'd like to make this trac drive unit whole again.
