Auger housing cockeyed

I took my blower apart to put new belts on, put it back together and now the auger housing is cockeyed from the handles.
I loosened the bolts off and got a friend to push down on the housing and tighten the bolts and its still off kilter.

I looked underneath to see if I bent anything and all looks good.

One of my toros had a twisted auger housing; the impeller housing was actually rotated relative to the auger section.



I had to grind off the welds, bang it back into shape (had to rotate < 1/8") & re-weld. I assume that it had a pretty traumatic event for it to be twisted like that.

It was a flat tire.....

It's super knobby and so the rubber held it up enough that I didn't think that would be the problem.

Always check the easy things first...

Sounds like something is pinched, check the auger pulley brake is properly positioned if equipped.
