Procedure for replacing belts 2007 ST724

i'm doing some work on this inherited machine. i just took the belt cover off, and it appears, as i suspected, that the belts look original. haven't yet found any good threads or youtube videos. any info or leads would be appreciated.

maybe i should purchase a full belt/pulley kit?

If you have the longer 6 digit model number (932027?) and maybe the serial number too you can try the Ariens site to see if they have a PDF manual.

i do have the manual. i am hoping to find some demo videos that show my style of blower (model 932046). not sure if i should plan on replacing pulleys and anything else. also, best places to get oem parts.

Unless there is a damaged pulley or idler, your pulleys and idlers should be just fine.

After looking at that photo, I would not even bother changing them, as they look fine to me .. , but having a set on hand is always a good idea, especially when you only have the one blower.

Ya know, that belt keeper in your photo looks like the one on another thread that the guy is missing I'll have to show him this picture when I get a minute.

are you saying you think the belts look ok and i should leave them for now? 12 years old, but not sure of the hours.
looks like a pair of belts is around $60.

Depending on storage conditions the 12 years old may not matter much. I agree about leaving them on, I don't see a need to replace them right away. There's no sign of fraying or the rubber splitting. But as he said it is good practice to have a spare set on hand. Murphy's Law says that if you don't have a set, a belt will break at the most inopportune time. Murphy also says that if you do have a spare set, you will never have to replace a belt. Murphy is a cantankerous old bastid.

$60 does sound a bit steep though so look around. Jack's Small Engines is a reputable online dealer.

Not sure where the $60 fits the bill here. Just purchased 2 belts for a craftsman overhaul. Mind you they're both Kevlar blue. The 2 belts came out to $8 and change, add to that $10 for shipping. My total was just over the $19 mark. I've been using these belts for years with no stretching or squealing. I say your in there go for it. Can't mention the website due to forum regulations but Google Kevlar belts and do a bit of cross referencing and you'll surely bump into it. Good luck, Allan
