Yes, you crank it and the whole housing moves back and forth to each side.
The rod with the gear on top in the picture has a chain hooked to it.
There is a crank up by the handles bars that connects to that rod and you crank it to turn the chute left or right.

I think maybe if he takes that rod off the front too he may be able to tilt the top of the cover forward to slip it up and off.
Maybe? I never had mine off yet.

Edit,
Or maybe just punch out the pin holding that gear on the rod to get it out of the way?
Up by the handle bars there is another pin holding the rod on.

Success!! I apparently turned the recoil just right and it fell right off. Looks like someone else bent part of it doing the same thing. One step closer to getting this into some snow. I also noticed something under one on the shrouds. Maybe this is one of the forum members??

You think he would have painted the inside too?
I hope you didn't add anymore scratches to his paint job.
Is that the heater box off the carb & gas tank with his name?

Now is the time to inspect the chute cable, hows it look?

See the cover on the chute housing?
You might as well pop that off and oil up the cable pulleys too.

Is the 226 parts diagram helping any?
Looks to be the same as your 225?

Yes, that is the cover over the gas tank. One of the catches has broken off, someone riveted it back on. I plan to lube everything I can while its apart. The manuals will be a huge help, I've spent some time today reading them. I also have an S-263 manual I've been reading.

I don't have a cable for the chute. The chain goes around the barrel and up around the sprocket. What's the lever on the right side of the barrel for?

You pick up the lever to manually move the chute.
You don't have a cable to turn the chute?
Is there a cover with 1 bolt holding it on by the chute on the drum?

You have a cable, it is hard to see in the 225 manual I sent, open up the 226 manual and you can see it better. Part number 96 is the cable pulley.
On the 225 manual it is the same part number 96.

If you pop the cable cover off (1 bolt) you will see the cable, it is on the drum that the chute sits on. It is about the only bolt you will see.

The cable itself is reference number 138 on the diagram.

Got it. Appears to be in good shape and well lubed. Could be 'fun' to replace.

Big Ed - Have you ever taken your belt cover off? Did you have to take off the handle tubes?
