924050 questions

Hi all. First post. Couple questions and as you can see from the date I procrastinate.
Neighbor works in Arizona and California so as long as I keep his trailer parking spot clear (plus he needed the storage room) he leaves his ST824 924050 (not sure all numbers needed for the question) with me. Want to change the oil and don't know much about these (it had been changed by someone 2 years ago and we didn't have alot of snow last year so not used much). Know it is old and looking thru stuff on here saw 5W-30 as recomended for changing. Didn't see anything on an oil filter? Also have changed the auger belt out 2X as it breaks (his son had used it in his trailer parking spot and was forcing it thru 3' deep snow and the other time park owner had plowed and chunks of frozen overflow he used to go thru). Got the belt from a local dealer who deals in Ariens and even asked about it as when on it seems like the tension has to be all the way tight (so belt is as tight as can get) and it seems to me like it's loose and almost to the point that it can come off the pulleys. Don't know if this is something normal or not.
Thanks for any answers. Am on dial up (stone ages...or cheap...here) so trying to go thru manuals is slow.

5W-30 is fine, thats what you want.
No oil filter! and no air filter.

Some people add their own oil filter, but IMO its not really necessary.
just change the oil once a year, and you will be fine.

Not sure about the belt for that model..I will let others answer that.

Thanks for the replies. Yes the belt is #07208600. Just to me it sees like with it adjusted all the way so it's tight there is alot of slop in it, was afraid it would slip off but had worked okay, was just concerned.
Saw it said synthetic oil so planned on getting that. My car I use 5W-30 synthetic so can also use it there. Just wonder if know approx. amount? Know can go by the dipstick but curious.
Thanks.

28oz is Full. Make sure Your Impeller Bearing is Tight Replace it if there is any slop; makes a Big Difference.
