I have actually a green 9HP Murray snowblower. It starts and also runs fine but mice gained in it so over there are file shreds under the auger belts and also the auger does no turn. First I must verify the the auger must not turn manually. And that it"s common that I have the right to turn the impeller manually.I took the belt shroud off and also it looks prefer the belts are fine and also the tension seems good. Can anyone explain why there room two belts? Is it one because that the impeller and one for the auger?
Welcome come the forum, you should have the ability to turn the auger by just turning the impeller only. Friend will watch it takes plenty of impeller turns to turn the auger. The reason there room 2 belts for the impeller and auger is to prevent your belts indigenous slipping.Good Luck

There is one belt because that the drive wheels and also then another belt because that the impeller. Some devices use 2 belts for the impeller and also a 3rd for the drive wheels.The augers are connected to the impeller through a worm gear setup on many machines. This means that the impeller can turn the augers, yet the augers can"t rotate unless the impeller is moving.In significance the finish of the impeller obelisk is a huge screw. Together that screw turns it pulls back on the augers and that causes them to spin.If the impeller isn"t functioning then over there is other wrong through the belt system. The mice probably chewed the belt or the manage cable that controls the clutch. The could also be that there is therefore much swarm material in there the the clutch is jammed and not tightening the belt properly. It can have also knocked the belt off the pulley.That all assumes the the impeller isn"t turning. If the impeller is turning, yet the augers space not you have other issues. One of two people the shear pins space broken and also now the auger obelisk is spinning within of the augers, or the prior gearcase is broken and then you have bigger issues.
