Cub Cadet snow blower QA36

I bought a QA36 snow blower last summer and installed it over the weekend and have a few questions.

What size of belt does this use?

The model shows QA36 - but it has the adjustable width so it can be mounted on both wide frames and narrow frames - did someone mate an older throwing unit to a "newer" mount?

The lift rod barely clears the front axle - it can not be lowered or lifted all the way - result of mating the adjustable width mount to the older snow thrower? Its is as if the arm on the snow blower (the the lift rod attaches to) is about two inches short. Any input on this or do I bolt on a "custome made" extender (in other words farmerize it)?

Anyone know of a supply or have some old parts laying around - the rod and "crank" to turn the shute is missing.

This is mounted on a CC 125.

You can make that chute crank easier than the price of the CC one if it is still made. Check on Ebay also. I have made longer pieces to put on the lift lever (at the snowthrower end) to help clear the axle. You can also put a smaller diameter pully on the blower gearbox, put on a shorter belt and speeds up the blower so it throws better. It won't work to well with wet, heavy snow, so don't get too disgusted if it does not work right

I extended the lift arm by bolting a longer peice of metal on (used original hole and drilled one). I found a chute crank from a walk behind I parted out a couple years ago that I might be able to make work (pays to be a packrat) other wise I'll be getting off to turn the chute just like I have to get off to set the angel on the plow. A 4R3100 belt works a lot better than the part listed (4R3000) in the book. To much tension without even tightening it up.

A QA36 snowthrower that is "adjustable" is actually a QA36A

Without pictures, it is hard to visualize this lift problem.

For parts, click on this link..... Parts. Type in QA36A for the model number.
