6 speeds reverse 2 fwd?????

got a sears c950-52677 I thought it just needed a engine but now that I have changed that it has 6 reverse speeds and 2 fwd. IE; it is backwards. I did not touch the shifting mech. and the impeller spins the right way so the engine is turning the right way. any thoughts or picks of shift linkage or tansmission internals would be great thanks in advance.

If your replacement engine has the same shaft configuration as you old engine you have your tractor drive belt misrouted. Ther's nothimg wrong with your machine.

Did you buy it used without an engine? Previous engine could have been dual output shafts. The one off the cam rotates the opposite way of the crankshaft and the transmission would be designed to run that way.

I agree with Jtclays, maybe a good time to speak or do a search here for how the members got around for their fix on 2 shaft engines.
Can you ascertain this fact that the former engine had 2 shafts?

+! I bet that's what happened. Some machines you can flip the gear box 180 without to much trouble...... or look for a good 2 shaft motor which is tough.

Your blower should look like this inside. I have the same model if it is an 8/25

+ 1 with the original engine being a 2 shaft engine.
Are the speeds abnormally fast (about twice the normal speed)?, if so, it definitely had a 2 shaft original engine.

Thanks all. I would be impressed with someone who could install a v belt wrong enough to spin a machine the wrong way. Must be 2 shaft never saw the engine.It was free. funny most sears I saw online were single shaft. Taurus it is a 8/25 is yours a 2 shaft? I can't say what normal or twice the speed is as I never saw it. I guess I live with it though the fwd 2 speeds seem on the fast side. maybe a pulley change. thanks again for anymore info and all this.

The fast side can be adjusted with your traction handle which would have a adjustable thingie either before entering the casing or above.
You would have to remove the bottom shield where you can see the friction disk which you could adjust as close to the middle of the steel disk and better yet it gives you the opportunity to lube or grease the innards and you should finish by cleaning the steel disk and friction disk with a rag with some gas. Remember don't over lube so some may fall in contact with the steel disk or the friction wheel. Good Luck
