Small Engines (Lawn Mowers, etc.)/drive belt change


How do you change the belt on an old Dynamark 5.0HP model 5347-4600 rototiller.

Can you attach a picture of the tiller?

Not much information on the net.

If the engine is a horizontal engine, then the belt should be located on the side of the tiller.  Removing a cover should provide access to the belt.  Once you can access the belt you may find belt guides that need to be loosened or moved to install a new belt.

If you do not know the belt routing a good tip to remember is that the V or front of the belt rides in the V part of the pulley.  The back of the belt always rides on flat pulleys.  This will help determine how the belt should be routed.

Born and raised in the midwest. Started tinkering with engines when I was about 14 on my Suzuki RM-80. I began lawn mower repair at a small hardware store. I knew absolutely nothing. I read lots of repair manuals and met an older fellow who taught me many lessons. I continued working on small engines through high school and paid my way through college working on mowers at the same hardware store. Decided to get away from the midwest and mower repair so I joined the Air Force. I repaired air traffic control electronic equipment and ended up in Hawaii where I got a part time job at Small Engine Clinic. I gained a lot of experience from the Small Engine Clinic and had a blast repairing small engines. I then took the Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician test and earned my MST. I then traveled to Wisconsin where I attended the factory update training seminar and received formal training. Continued working on mowers part time as I completed 20 years of military. Retired from the military on a Friday and continued in the lawn and garden industry the next Monday.
