Mounting thrower on 417

Recommended Posts

Gents and Gals 

 

i bought the 417 this summer after broke axle on 314, the 417 came with deck, plow, and thrower. I’m missing the eye bolt for the helper spring? 

Help anyone know the length ? It’s 5/8 I think in diameter. Also what belt will work it’s the 79360 thrower, the old belt is in rough shape 

 

many thanks

I also have a 417 but do not use the blower with it. I use the 520-H with a 79361 2 stage. I believe the Toro part # is 9750 for the 79360. I hope this helps you.  Jim

My eyebolt is 3/8-16 threads that are about 3" long.  Use a nylock nut and run it in till the spring starts to stretch a bit with the snowblower in its highest position.  A long thread length allows easy spring connection and then plenty of adjustment.

Drive belt should be 5/8" x 69".

Make sure you get one that is designed to bend backwards over a flat idler. The green Gates belts available from Napa is one of them.
