There is a Murray belt 585417 but most take 585416. Right now I have several Murrays, 5, 8, 10hp, 2 Nomas 5 & 9hp, and a 8/26" Dynamark. They all take the 585416, 1/2" x 38" auger belt. For accurate belt length, I only buy D&D Power or Pix, prefer blue, and prefer Kevlar. Before you scrap the belt, measure the outside length.

1986 Ariens ST522, 5hp, 22"
1995 Murray Craftsman 10hp, 29" w. 12" impeller
A 1983 Real John Deere 10hp, 32" w. 12" impeller, 16" auger, 20" high front, cast iron gear box, chains
Noma 9hp, 27" w. 12" impeller
Noma 5hp, 24" w. 12" impeller, 20" high front
Gravely Convertible, 12hp Kohler cast iron, 26" width, 600 lbs of cast iron & steel, 2 speed impeller, 4 ground speeds
Dynamark 8hp, 26", 12" impeller, for sale
Several other 5hp, 8hp, several 2 cycle, all for sale

Some Tecumseh carbs have a side jet, not a mixture screw. This is not adjustable. If you are unsure, unscrew it. If it's a needle valve, it's a mixture screw. If it's blunt at the end, it's a jet. The jet also has a smaller screw head than the mixture screw, and screws all the way in, flush. The mixture screw does not screw all the way in.
thanks. found a video from donyboy73 that shows the exact carb . almost have it dialed in. still working on proper idle.

Keep in mind the mixture will be different if thereís are significant temperature change

Dial it in when your in the garage and itís warm then in the cold it doesnít run as well.

I find I pick up 100 rpm running in the cold.

Also I find the tecumseh 8-10 hp do not idle down as well as other single cylinder engines.
