Ariens 11526 Pro Model:926005 Drive issue

Had a storm today the the blower started ok but when I put it in drive nothing happened. When I put it in drive I can not push the machine forward or backward with the drive engaged if I really give it a good push I heard what sounded like 2 metal plates grinding against each other. I can push the machine when the drive lever is not engaged. Any idea where I should start?

I would flip the blower up in the service position and take the belly pan off you can see the friction disk and see what is wrong.

Ok I took it apart to see whatís going on and I noticed the drive belt was not on the pulley so the belt doesnít look broken and it doesnít look too worn and Iím wondering if I could just go through the season with it. Can I get the drive belt back on by loosening some adjustments and not having to split the machine in half

Yup, poor design on those models. Belts jump off all the time.
That newer design moves the transmission pulley to the friction wheel. Nice idea as it removed friction plate assembly, and uses the lower transmission pulley surface as a friction plate surface. But the downside is the belt misalignment issue. When engine is running and snowblower is not moving there is a large alignment offset, when you engage drive lever it moves pulley to friction wheel and aligns the belt almost perfect.

Two options....
1 st... You can replace a bolt on the pulley movement plate assembly to make it more aligned when running engine and no drive engauged.

2 nd... you can cut 1/4" off of the auger pulley, file out the molded key inside, the place it on the crankshaft first and then the transmission pulley and finally the auger pulley.

Here's the pulley modification I was talking about, and if you look closely you will see where the belt had slipped off and was wearing against the auger pulley.

I'll find the pixx of the bolt replacement and post that up soon.

Can't find what I'm looking for ....

But here's the diagram pixx, it is plate assembly #10 I'm talking about.
It is hinged on bottom and pivots front to back, somewhere on the LEFT side of chassis there is a bolt stop, please look inside pulley area from the top and you should see the plate assembly and the stop bolt.
Let us know how you make out.
