    Impeller Kit

    I bought one too. I haven't installed it yet. Does anyone think that maybe the additional seal will cause a smaller motor to be overworked?

    By the way, does anyone know where I can find parts for old AMF snowblowers, specifically a 26" Huskie. Thanks.

    To find information, search impeller kit on google or on ebay. It will say something about a 100% garauntee or 90 days.

    How tight should the auger belt be

    I have a single stage auger control yard man bantam snow bird snow thrower. I check the belt and the longest part goes about 2 inches when pressed form the center. Also the auger will stop if its clogged with wet snow. Is this a sign of a bad belt?
    Thank you

    Welcome Auggiedoggie,

    It does sound like the belt is worn or loose. I tried to find an owner's manual on the web but all I came up with was this MTD site. I believe they make yardman products. They have e-manuals but you need to enter your model and serial numbers. Good luck.

    any1 ever used one of these? i would find the extra distance extremely helpful so i avoid blowing the snow 2 times in a wide area..

    I have not used them, but working in the fan industry, the theory is correct. The "gap" between the impeller and housing is the key factor in improving airflow and pressure build up, and in this case, snow-flow. I would think so long as the unit had the horsepower to accomodate the extra snow, it would be great. Seems it would prevent less snow from being recirculated before being thrown, and thus redundant work.
