Question about Toro Garden
Typical snow blower shifts by moving a drive wheel on a hexoganal shaped shaft. Likely the wheel has rusted to the shaft from insufficient maintenance.
Remove the rear/bottom cover plate to access the transmission (usually 4 bolts). Lubricate shaft/wheel with penetrating oil and work free.
Avoid getting oil on the drive wheel and disc or thoroughly clean the disc and wheel with a liberal application of alchohol until wiping with a rag comes clean.
Lubricate any drive chains as well.

On one side of your machine you will find a cover that you can remove, the belt for the auger is in there. From what I can see there is no adjustment. Check to see how the belt looks.If it's chewed up it will need to be replaced.If you remove the belt try to turn the impeler to see if it turns freely, if it doesn't then check to see if there is something wedged. if nothing is wedged and the belt is off and it still don't turn by hand it could posibly be a bad bearing.if it does turn by hand. Also check the belt pulleies to see if they are ok, the only pulley that will sshould spin freely is the idler pulley, the one on the engine shaft should spin the moter so make sure you pull the spark plug wire off to check that one, and the auger pulley should spin with the auger.

I would check it at the start of every season and clean it. If you note that it seems to be running rich and might have fouled the plug, you can always pull it and check it again. Probably not a bad idea to check it before you put it away for the season. As for replacement, it depends on condition. I would think that you should get two or three season's use out of it before needing to replace it, at least.

You may have had no Fuel in the tank, But there may have been residual fuel left in the carburetor. It will need to be cleaned out.
Hope you get it done before the first snow fall.

Many times moisture attacks the hexagon shaft that the friction disc assembly slides on. It slides from side to side on the shaft to create Reverse 1 & 2, and the other end creates 1-6 forward. With a wire brush and sandpaper, clean the rust from the hexagon shaft, at the same time lubricate the friction disc bearing with penetrating oil and with a soft hammer, tap gently until the assembly starts to slide on the hexagon shaft. After all the rust is removed and disc assembly is sliding, apply a light film of graphite grease on the shaft. You may want to re-lubricate on a yearly basis.
