Hi. I have a new GTX1054 Cub Cadet tractor. I bought the MTD 2 stage snow blower, 190-032. I installed the set and everything went on basically with out a problem. The problem is the final belt, spindle to blower is way too loose. It barely touches the sprung twin idler pulleys.
I checked the belt number and it is correct for my application. The last thing I can think of is the little blurb in the blower installation instructions about 700 series tractors. Which number do I use to determine if this is a 700 series tractor? Do I use the serial number or the model number?
It seems the 700 series set up would move the ilder assembly back about an inch and that might take up the improper slack in the spindle to blower belt. I set it up for the non 700 series tractor, using all four mount pins and it doesn't work, the belt is way too loose. Thanks for any help on this.
