Sears 8hp-25" blower

Anyone have any idea of the size/aftermarket number for the belts for an 8hp 25" Sears blower model C950-52677-7. The ole girl is 22 years old and works like a charm.
I've got the part numbers, a 3887 for the auger and a 25 for the drive. The price they charge for an OEM belt is crazy not to mention if they're still available.....Mike

That 3887 part number is a Murray number if that helps. So your machine was obviously built by Murray. B&S are now supplying replacement parts. I would be surprised if they are still not availbale at Sears parts. Last time I bought one it was about $17. As well last time I looked they were available elswhere on line but not significanlty cheaper delivered.

Cheers

Yes it does, now at least I have an alternative source.
They're certainly smart making sure there's nothing else will work. I'll go on the assumption the drive belt is the same make as I can't see anyway it wouldn't be.
I've got an e-mail into Sears so we'll see if they come thru and of so what price.
Thanks......Mike

I'd be one of the ones saying those good things. I've got a lot of hours on the beast and a lot of those are hard ones. I haven't abused it nor have I treated it easy neither.
All I've had to replace is the friction disk, it was still driving but starting to crack (preventative replcement).
The axle, I couldn't get the wheels off as I didn't keep them greased so I had to cut them off. Wasn't a bad deal tho, a piece of 3/4" dia stressproof, a bit of drilling and it was good to go. Believe it or not it still has the origonal plug.....Mike
