how are the bearings in the idler pulley?

does the auger turn freely? if not check the auger bearings.

Loose motor mounts. Just a guess. I'm having the same trouble with my lgt 165 ford and I think my motor mounts are bad causing the slipping belt.

He rebuilds old construction equipment so I'm sure everything else is good

What's the model # on the blower? They made two different blowers in those years that will hook up to half the tractors they made, but they have about five different mounting systems that all look the same.

Then that is most likely not the issue. I would check the back pins on the mounting arms to ensure they're fully engaged, check the alignment on the front bracket, (make sure nothing is bent) and then the two rear idler pulleys.
