Broke a spring.

Broke the old spring because it was 32 years old. It broke during a snow storm. Ordered two,one for now and one for when this one goes.

Easy to Install

Replaced snowblower ground drive idler spring which was broken. this spring allows idler pulley and belt to engage the ground drive. Broken or missing spring then the wheels do not move forward!

Installed in about 15 minutes. So easy!

Installed ground drive idler spring. It helped that we already had the snowblower apart and just needed to install the spring.

Small spring

The shipping costs for a small $6.00 spring was $8.99 , which is ridiculous!

Not a good replacement part

This “replacement” part is not of the same design as the original which when installed is too close to the drive belt. It should have an extended hook like the original. Don’t know if it will hold up or cause damage to the belt over time.
