This if for a Canadiana Noma on chains... I included a picture of the setup. The pulley below is the auger belt. You can see there are 3 metal tabs welded on the blower that keeps me from removing the belt. I guess I need to takt the pulley off to remove the belt??? The problem I have tryng to remove the pulley is that there is not enough space betweet the auger pulley and the drive pulley (the top one) to extract the auger pulley. Any hint??

Bob the butcher here for a reply. 2 crescent wrenches. Place 1 as close to the weld as possible, grab the handle of the 1st wrench with jaw of second (90 degrees) and bend her open.

is that guard not bolted onto the motor? if so simply unbolt it remove the belt and pulley
It might not be obvious on the picture but the guard is actually welded on the blowers body. Not removable. Also, I can't figure how to remove that pulley I did loosen it but there is not enough space between both pulleys to remove them.

I think you need to split the machine bucket from the power unit and chassis. Should be some bolts near the top of the chassis by the impeller housing. Then you support the handle end and allow the bucket to pitch forward on the lower mounts. The top pulley is likely the wheel drive pulley and will stay with the power unit and chassis. The lower auger/impeller pulley will stay with the bucket. The belt needs to be removed from the engine auger/impeller pulley and the tensioner idler pulley. Then the bucket will pitch forwards and separate from the power unit chassis.

If you don't have a helper then attach the handles to a wall so the machine is angled slightly to lift the bucket from the ground and chock front and back of wheels. That will stabilize the machine and allow the bucket to roll forward away from power unit chassis. You have to separate the machine to fix your other problem.

Don't we get a ***? for this one? LOL. Engineer designed? Purpose?

I agree with "Town", splitting the machine and pulley coming "out" of the cage.
