Toro powershift 1132 not throwing snow

Hello I recently picked up a used 1132 snowblower, it needed a new auger belt and impeller bearing ball which I replaced. Tried it on some of the wet snow we got today and it barely threw it 2 feet.

The auger turns, the impeller turns, engine runs well or at least it seems like it does.

Do I need to take this in for a pro to look at or is there something I am missing that might be obvious?

Any good kit I can buy or should I just make my own?

Just saw your other post recommending tractor supply 4" baler belt. Do you use just regular self tapping screws or are bolts and nuts the recommended way to go?

just make your own. I have two toro 521's one has an impeller kit and the other does not ( none of my larger toro's have an impeller kit either ) and I prefer the kitted 521 for wet snow over them all and can't wait to put a kit on the powerthrow

I cut the Baler belt to the right size for the impeller I'm doing.....I use the perforated flat stock from Home Depot to sandwich the rubber. I clamp the perforated strip to the cut rubber about 1/8 inch from the edge with vice grips, and drill 5/16 holes through the rubber based on the holes in the strip....I do 2 holes. Then I place the rubber with the holes drilled on the impeller, and using a long 5/16 drill mark the impeller. Remove the rubber ....drill 5/16 holes, use 5/16 x1 inch bolts and self locking nuts...and repeat. I jam a large screwdriver between the impeller and the body of the blower to wedge it while I drill. It really makes a difference in the performance of the blower in all types of snow conditions.

Thanks a ton for the advice and guidance, going to attempt this tomorrow and hopefully I'll see an improvement in the performance!

Another side question, the bearing ball that I replaced had a set screw, that was supposed to be left at whatever factory tightness it was right?
I also noticed maybe a little bit of play in the shift moving back and forth but I pulled it as much as I could before tightening the pulley set screws, is there a better way to ensure that there is no play back and forth with the auger shaft
