Craftsman drift buster 536.909800

536.909800 craftsman drift buster need owners manual and help with drive pulleys. I just got this machine recently. went through the carb seems ok it starts and runs fine. however, the auger and five pulleys never stop spinning. the clutch cable moves as it is suppose to. I did notice the belts are old and kind of sticky... would this be the issue or is there an adjustment that I'm missing? also does this model have an air filter?

hello awg, welcome to SBF. if the belts look old to you then change them cause they won't break until you go blow some snow

Most likely no air filter.

Forum member (and moderator) HCBPH is the resident expert on those machines. He should be along soon. He has your manual also. In the meanwhile...if you have the belt cover off the top, does the idler movement look like it's going full travel when you operate the cable? I have a similar machine, but the auger is controlled by a crank/lever and not a cable.

Yes the idlers seem to have full movement. Belts go lose when unengaged and tighten when engaged. Is there an adjustment for the belts? I am looking for to hearing from HCBPH. As soon as get it up and going correctly I plan on giving it a fresh coat of paint.

Still hoping Paul steps in soon.
How thick are your belts? Mine are only about a quarter inch thick. I think that is normal. I have been avoiding getting a spare because I thought about looking for a regular kevlar v belt locally. The thin murray belts are available online but are not cheap. One reason I haven't is my fear of a deeper belt being grabby in the pulley when disengaged. If that makes sense.
Mine doesn't say driftbuster on it anywhere, but it has the same auger(s). It is different from yours in the drive side. It has a friction disk where you have a transmission.
This is what mine looks like.

that actually looks very close to mine... but there are some differences. I'm going to check locally for new belts they aren't very thick... maybe a quarter as well. but they are worn and really sticky lime they have a river goo on them. I'm going to try to post pictures tonight or in the morning. I aappreciate the help guys!
