Question Yardman 7020-0 26" snowblower

I am trying to repair a old Yardman snowblower for my neighbor that belong to her Father years ago

This machine is so old it has studs in the tires.

I played around and got it to run pretty good. It has a Tecumseh 6 hp engine.

It need new belts for one thing. The two belts are listed as part # 40021 36" special 4L 360. The other belt is listed as 40041 40" special 4L 400.

I want to replaced these belts but not ssure of the width and what do I ask for.

The other problem is I can 't get the auger to turn. The snowblower itself does move forward and backwards and the blower runs.

What should I look for to get the auger operation going.

This snowblower must weigh a ton. Back when they made thing better and took no shortcuts.

All help is appreciated

Those are generic garden/equipment belts. 4l is the width and profile and 400 is a 40 inch belt just drop the last zero. so the other is a 4l 36 inch.

I havent used an old school yardman in a while, have to rack my brain for the auger

3L is 3/8" and 4L is 1/2"

So yea, 1/2" x 36" and 1/2" x 40".

Just make sure you get power rated belts. They should say something like Kevlar reinforced cording.



Are you trying to turn the auger or the impeller? Most auger setups use a worm gear so you have to turn the impeller shaft to get the auger to turn.

Thanks for the information on the belts. Will pick up new ones tomorrow. As for the auger, I found the shear pin missing. Do you know what size I need. I kind of measure the hole for it and it looks like 5/16 d x 1 and 7/8 long. Is there more info I need to get a couple of these.

Does this snowblower (snowbird) really have any value anymore. This think must weigh 200-300lbs or so

Value is an unknown, what's valuable to one is junk to another.
As far as sheer bolts, go to wherever you get your parts and look for 5/16" sheer bolts in the right length or slightly longer. I usually buy mine at places like Fleet Farm in boxes of 6+. Note three are also some 1/4" and some ones with pins, just find those that look right for you.

If its not working, its worth $25 to $50.
If everything is working and functional, its worth about $200 to $300, depending where you live..

To 99.99% of people, it's just "another old snowblower"..slightly higher quality than most, but nothing super-rare, unusual, or valuable..it was made in the late 1960's, 1967 to 1970 timeframe.

Being a Snowbird, that gives it a small "coolness factor"..but there are very people who even know, or care, that it's cool!

Does anybody have blown view of the diagram of the belts and pulleys? I have a manual but it does not clearly show how to adjust the settings.

I can get it to go forward but not in reverse. The old belts were cracks and it did not want to go into reverse very well.

The reverse belt does not use the v part of the belt but it uses the flat part otherwards inside out.

Would appreciate any replies regarding this matter

Thanks

I received your pictures. I have taken two (2) pictures and would like you to look at them. I have seem to have put them on correctly.

I can not see where I can send pictures on the reply thread
