I wondered how dificult it would be to replace an engine on a Toro 624 Snowblower....I found one that has a blown engine (think it is a 6HP Tecumsh) and I have an MTD that has a good 8HP Tecumsh engine (but problems with other components) and was wondering how hard it would be to swap the 6hp out and put the 8hp on?
I have a 1995 MTD 8hp snowblower - Model 315e640f013. I had torn the machine apart to replace an Auger, but when I put it back together the auger pulleys seem to be rubbing tight against the box frame. The only parts that I saw was the pulley adapter that wen directly against the bearing ( with the bearing sitting flat, but when you tighten the pulleys down they seem to get too tight and rub against the frame? I know its probably something simple but I also noticed the belts appear to not roll right as well?
Any suggestions on how to replace an Auger on an MTD Snowblower about 10 yrs old? I removed the side screws as well as the 2 spring pins that were in the shaft going back from the impeller to the engine, but it did not slide out - I sprayed it with lubricate but didn't know if I should try heating it up or there were other suggestions on how to get the pieces apart so that I can slide the auger off and replace it?
