Old Craftsman C944 52750 parts

Just bought this machine and in the ad it stated that the machine "chews" belts. We thought it was a simple fix and decided to risk the $50. Went to pick it up and had them start it. Started first pull and ran like a charm. The gentleman told us that he replaced a belt and didn't get the right size. Being a true redneck, he jimmy-ed it so it would work. So it doesn't chew the belts as his wife put in the ad. Even better, right? My problem is that I can't find any manuals or info anywhere that tells me what the proper belt part number is or even what size it is. Can anyone help?

Welcome to the forum Shelmac

Might help if you posted up a picture of the machine. Does it say made in Canada by that model number ??

This is the picture that accompanied the ad. I could get different angles tomorrow if you need to see something in particular.
I'm fairly certain (without looking) that it was made in Canada. I have read on different sites that I was most likely manufactured by Noma Canadiana, but was unable to find any information on their site.

That's a good looking older blower with a much newer engine. The engine alone should be worth your $50

Well, parts.sears.ca, isn't as friendly, as it is down here. Down here, we can look up exploded diagrams and parts lists and numbers.

Hopefully someone from your neck of the woods will be able to chime in to give you a link to find the info for your machine. And I looked through parts tree, and did not come up with anything for murray or MTD, two known manufactures of craftsman. So I referenced the 944 portion of your model number and it came back to a Husqvarna....?

Here's the link:

Craftsman OEM List | VintageMachinery.org

But there was nothing on parts tree, that was helpful.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Forgive me, but that is a replacement engine. You may want to make sure that the pulley's are aligned. That could explain why it is eating them.

And my first impression, is that it resembles an Ariens.

I found that out quickly. It's like my machine is the red headed step child that they want to forget! Can't even find a mention on their site. lol

I will just keep hanging around until something shows up. lol

The original belt might not even fit now that he changed the engine. Some engines use different heights on the crankshaft so the engine pulley could be sitting an inch higher or lower than it originally did. He could have changed the pulley size as well. So getting the original belt might be of no use to you. Just get one that fits and works and take note of its size.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I will take a closer look at the engine tomorrow.
