Hand-me-down craftsman snow blower. Worked great last year and this year's first good storms. Halfway through last week's storm, lost blowing power. Runs good, but the snow gets blown a few feet at best, sometimes barely clearing the shoot. (Was blowing snow 20-30 feet before.)

Sears doesn't stock belt. Replaced belt at auto parts store. Didn't help. Replaced belt again, this time with a green extra sticky traction belt. Still not helping. Ordered Sears belt. Waiting. Based on the description, I think the Sears belt is going to come in LONGER than the one on it now, so I'm not hopeful.

Any suggestions? Snowing hard.
