So today I decided to see if I could use the belt fingers to stop belt from spinning. No go then I watched a few youtube videos didn't care which onea they were to see what the belt looked like on the top pulley and it looked to be to small.

Now the only problem with me putting a bigger belt on the machine is that there really isn't any thing to hold it in place from falling off the pulley. Not sure if someone took the belt guides off or what. It just the 2 pulleys and the fingers coming off the engine.

Still have no idea what that piece under the idler pully does. If that was part of the brake at one point or not

Does anyone know this. I was talking to a guy the other day at a small engine and machine repair shop about my auger belt. He said if I go for a larger belt it should be about a inch bigger. Right now I have a 35 1/2 inch belt on right now and said to go to a 36 1/2 inch belt.

Does this sound right

an extra inch might be too much depends on machine, see if they have a 1/2" longer one and test both out....but your idler pulley in pics is adjusted to its furthest extension which would keep more tension on belt. loosen pulley bolt and slide pulley back
in the pick the idler pulley is set all the way back.
the bottom arrow is the brake

edit:nm, i got my sense of direction all mixed up on the pulley placement. in my pic its set for max belt tension and in ur pic its set for the least tension

My tensioner is totally backed off on mine and it still spins the auger. It isn't at the moment touching the belt.

So I bought a 36 inch belt today haven't installed it yet but figured I would go 1/2 inch at a time and see how it works. Sure I will find proper belt for.

Anyways there is no belt brake on this machine. At least nothing I can find.

I was just looking at this picture and wondering what this piece actually doea under the tensioner pulley. Could this piece could have been turned around and that is the brake. It just catches the belt.

bambamshere,

I believe that the bracket attached to the arm for the Auger Idler is installed incorrectly. In my opinion, it should be positioned on the other side of the arm (same side as the pulley) and perhaps rotated 180 ?

The general idea is that when the Auger Idler is disengaged, something on the retracted arm creates friction against the auger belt/pulley - preventing the loose belt from slowly turning the auger pulley.

I own a 1975 Baycrest/Noma 826. I will look to see whether the Auger Idler arm and linkage is similar to yours and post again.

K thank you. I know that it had the wrong belt on it. I put the right belt on and it does stop now but takes about 10 to 15 seconds to stop..
