724 auger turns when not engaged

Just replaced both belts and adjusted tension as loose as possible but the auger still turns when not
engaged. Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Bill

Could be the wrong Belt. Did You Use OEM Belts?

Thumbs up

You are going to have to adjust the rod backward for the new belt. because the new belt hopefully the right 1. and not a auto belt. is going to ride higher in the pulley groove being brand new. let me know the score on that 1. you can PM Me for my E-MAIL if need be.

Not all belts are the size they claim. Look up the size in inches the manufacturer recommends, then remove the belt and measure the outside with a flexible tape using paper clip clamps for a tight and exact fit.
