Ariens 11526 Pro Snow Blower Model:926005

I have a problem with my Ariens 11526 Pro Snow Blower Model:926005

I just replaced my drive and 2 auger belts on my Ariens 11526 Pro Snow Blower Model:926005. When I start it up it wants to move forward without the drive engaged. I took it for a walk around the back yard for 5 minutes figuring it would seat the belt enough to stop the slight pull on the wheels but it didn't. The cable has a lot of slack and I even loosened it just to rule it out. I can't even push it into place when putting it away because the wheels are slightly locked... If I rock it sometimes it loosens so I can move it a little. Any ideas on how I can make it idle at a stand still?

I have tripple checked the belt size and it should be ok.
Impeller Belt: 07200623
Traction Belt: 07236100
Friction Disc: 00170800

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Does the blower tend to roll as well?
You should just have a look at the pulleys area and see if you can slacken with the idler pulley. PS do not slacken too much as it doesn't take much to make a difference.

Good Luck

When engine is off and I try to push it won't move easy. I have to go back n fourth to get it to roll... seems like it's engaged very little. My thought was to take it out this weekend and run it in the back yard a little bit. Maybe the belt will stretch a little and all will be good. BUT that sounds to easy. I don't see any settings on the pulley
Thanks

You have the same belts as my Ariens without checking the numbers you supplied but my my model is 921006 which is the same as yours

After verifying you need: Traction Drive Belt, 1/4" X 27", set of two matched, replaces Ariens 7207400

From your last post it should be the idler pulley and not the engine nor the drive pulley but idler pulley for the traction pulley.

should not be set of two as shown above

Ariens sent me the 2 pulley replacement for the impeller after I purchased it because the original 1 belt system had trouble with slipping. It's a beast now. I am sure the 3 belts are ok. I checked the manual, called a local dealer, called a rep and checked with one other dealer. The original 2 pulley system used Impeller Belt: 07200020 old
Now superseded with Impeller Belt: 07200623. new number. The drive belt 07236100.
Forgot to mention the 2 pulley system was added.

Just so we're on the same page you state above your blower tend to creep forward when running, the only belt that have this occur is the friction disk pulley which is the small 1/4" X 27" belt.

The two other belts for the impeller and auger should be the same size.
So as you mentioned just use it some more and the creep should disappear.

Thanks, Appreciate your helping me think through this. I think spending 15 minutes outside with it will fix it.

One other question, do you ever have trouble with that crazy belt protector thing that goes over the impeller pulls? That thing is so hard to get in the perfect place. If anyone knows of a trick on how to line it up let me know.

Just to clarify further it cover all three pulleys, normally you just need to slacken the one bolt on each side then pull it free and after to reinstall it you just to wiggle it to its place using the bolts as guides then tighten them.
One more thing, you might want to see if that protector has the kit to prevent snow melt dropping on the friction disk. If no kit I just used the small stick foam weather stripping glued to the protector closest to engine.

I can post a pic if you need.

Yes it covers a 3 pulleys. If you have the time and wouldn't mind sharing I would love to see your foam idea. I have had so many problems with the belts on this machine maybe adding this foam rig could help. I love seeing ideas from others just the same.
Thanks

As you can see in one pic the weather stripping is simply glued to the one side and the other shows you when installed it presses on the engine and fills the gap nicely.
