Carlos Rosario: thanks my 10hp ariens was revving super high and thanks when there was no
load on the machine thanks to this video i got my machine running right
9secondsflat: so max rpm at wide open is just an audible thing, if it sounds ok then its
"ok" if it sounds fast then its to fast???
Patricia Hoffman: Thanks for the video, I seem to have a high RPM but when in deep snow it
does not seem to have enough speed.or enough power. I have a
Tecumsch, HSK35,40, HSSK50 snow blower. I did rebuild the cab. and that
tony Kari: Awesome. Vid. My toro 524 works great. But when I let go of the auger gear
before it completely stops. It makes a grinding noise ? The belt looks good
Ray Josephs: Question, I have a Tecumseh hssk 50-55 on my snow-bower...always stored
off-season properly. First usage this season, fresh gas in, fired right up
and runs great however, I notice it's not RPM'ing as high as it normally
does. Should I first adjust the governor screw or adjust the governor
Johnnie Guitar: Excellent video on the governor operation and adjustments! Thanks! I have
a problem that wasn't addressed in the video. My engine's speed lever gives
me high rpm at the top of the lever throw like it should, but will now no
longer drop down to idle speed when I push the lever down to the lower
position? The revs stay high in both positions now. What 's going on and
how do I fix it? Thanks!
Stéphane D: i would like to have this video in french because my english is not perfect
Cory Barron: Great Videos Dony. I find your videos informative, and easy to follow.
pete barber: well done thank you for taking time to make great videos...
concoursuph: Great Video !! I have one of these Snow Blowers, When I put a load on
it, like in snow it stops, It sounds like it is running a little rough
too...it is the 522R It has been sitting a while but I cleaned out the old
gas and put in new gas...and at least got it running...Do you think the
carb should be rebuilt ?
Jim DeBonis: Thanks Donnie! This was exactly what I needed.
Erik Smothers: That did the trick, thanks for the insight.
Bob Grez: I wanted to thank you. Came back from a mechanic and I needed more
throttle. My snow would throw 5 feet and engine would die out and needed
multiple manual restarts. Turned in throttle mechanism screw one turn. Snow
throws 12 feet, not once did it stall, more than enough power. You made
cleaning out from snow a pleasure. Thanks for also teaching me a lot about
carb adjustments and throttle and governor adjustments. It was a mystery
art before you explained it, now it's science. Real cool. I subscribed.
Tom Power: Terrific video donyboy73!
Thanks for sharing your expertise!
rosko67: I am rather savvy with small engines because i am a tinkerer and a RC nitro
tunnel hall boat racer. Some of the time there is a learning curve (BOOM)
just once. With all the snow we have had here in ohio a snow blower is a
must. I given the task to fix all of my fathers equipment that had been
neglected for a few or 8 years. To save my back no curve allowed. Brother
you rock, Awesome video. The beast is back, she is running like a champ
kicking A and throwing snow. Thanks!
jamleakatandlyd: Thanks for the Video! Bought an old tiller and when I push the throttle
lever up and down - it does nothing. Replaced the spring and that didn't
help. Any suggestions? Thanks again for all the videos you put on
thomas g: My problem is the same as Johnnie Guitar does anyone have the solution.
Speed lever refuses drop down to idle speed when the lever is fully down.
how to resolve this problem.
borderline666: Very Useful, thanks for taking time doing this!
Alicia Kaufman Chris Cummings: Just wondering if performing this adjustment could cause the throttle to
become unresponsive in anyway? My snowblower now revs normal when idling
but seems to rev the same speed at any throttle position.
4x4extreme5: Whats the fix for a carb that only works when its fully choked. thanks
bjamesW32: Regarding engine rpm I'm astonished at how often I hear "if it runs too
fast/slow" and just left to the tuner's ear. No doubt one person's ear
and the next might be off by 500 to 1000rpm or worse depending on their
experience with small motors.
This is one of the best "bargain" category tools I've ever purchased on
I purchased the first one linked and have adjusted every small engine in my
possession to manufacturer's spec. Best for the engine and good for my
peace of mind. Dead simple. Reflective tape comes with the unit and you
cut a 1/2" piece from the roll and affix it to any rotating spot on your
engine. Point the led/laser (these are just led but are effective to 20
inches or something like that) and press the test button. Very cool
tony Kari: Nice. Thanks
jfolck1886: My snow blower was running like crap so I had a friend take the carb off
and take it to a friend of his and the guy took it all apart and cleaned it
good. After putting it back on the snow blower the engine would race. Well
my friend got sick so he hasn't been able to fix it. I found your video and
now it runs like a charm! I just have to adjust the high throttle screw at
the throttle handle to let the rpms come up just a little bit more. Thanks!
Nathan Dockter: thanks for your helpful videos!
rescueme67: Thanks...will do...feeling confident after watching your videos...the unit
is about 6 years old...do you suggest getting a rebuild kit for the o-rings
etc. before I take it apart or would you think they may be ok for that age?
donyboy73: @jhope52 thanks man
Stuart Broad: @donyboy73 is the red lever the choke?
Dave jarosiewicz: For those that have a problem with it starting and then dying, clean the
main jet on the bottom of the carb bowl. If you look close there is a small
pinhole near the bottom. This needs to be clear or you will have the blower
keep dying on you.
bayou250s: good info man!!!
John Anderson: how do I know if my govenor is wore out and needs to be replaced? I have a
john deere 1032, with a 10hp tecumseh and rebuilt the carb and it is
running great for the most part. My snowblower does not throw the snow very
far and I just cleaned and straighted the impeller blades.
donyboy73: @aaroncake thank you sir
hsr1hsr1: Thank you for this helpful video.When I move the red throttle speed
adjustment lever up or down on my snowblower,the lever on the left of it,
with all the little holes in it does not move with it. The lever on the
left remains down against the gas line.A second problem is that the govenor
linkage (the one you adjust with the torx screwdriver) seems seized and
doesn't move at all.The wires are in place. Thanks Your help is greatly
Mark Cebrowski: Thank you for posting this.
jaylosix: Hi there, I have a 10 hp Tec. in a Troy Built blower . When you prime it
the gas drips out on the ground, I have taken the carb apart but it still
does it. It seems like the prime nipple on the carb is in a bad place wich
allows the gas to run out of the throttle body. I was just wondering if you
have seen thjis before and is there any way to correct it.
Farm Brook: @hsr1hsr1 I have exact problem you had. Have you figure out how to fix it?
4mudski: Great video! Could you tell me why my 1995 tecumseh 10 hp engine's muffler
bolts are glowing red when I finish my driveway?? Engine starts with first
pull and runs great. Thanks
Stephen Boricic: Another great video. I adjusted my full throttle rpms by just tightening
the screw by the throttle lever.
Diezel C.P: awesome!
diftoyota: i'm happy you got this video in here, i just bought a blower and rebuilt
the carburator. my trottle dint work at all. i tryed everything and seem to
me that my throttle linkage was not right. i have seen your video and it
confirmed my problem, the guy intaled the linkage upside down so the rod is
going under the gas pipe instead of on top haha. thanks for the video it
helped me alot
70supercar: My governor isn't increasing the RPM's on my 8 HP-26" Tecumseh when I get
into deep snow. When the governor is at it's max RPM in deep snow, is the
carb flap suppose to be closing? When I manually push the governor lever
towards the back of the blower my flaps are closing. When I rebuild and
tune Holley carbs, a carb for a car when the throttle is accelerating the
Varouj Papazian: hi donyboy iam heaving big problem with my arien 8 hp it works 10 sec and
stops . i cant start the motor is not giving me any chance to adjust . the
carb idal trot pls can you tell me what to do
donyboy73: @VE9REJ getting ready for winter rej?
donyboy73: @grandisleme could be
donyboy73: @bustedsnowblower ur welcome
Farm Brook: @hsr1hsr1 I have the exact the same problem. Have you found the solution?
donyboy73: did u replace the seat and needle
rescueme67: if i had to make guess...seems like it burns off whatever fuel enters from
priming then runs out of fuel.
ConkersBFDN64: I've got an Ariens snowblower, and when I move the throttle up, it just
keeps reving higher and higher. I've already eliminated the adjustment
screw as the problem, as even when I back it out all the way, it is still
too high. It seems the Governor doesn't pull back on the throttle at all,
no matter how fast it revs. I'm not sure how I'd fix this, since the
Governor is in the engine. Any suggestions of what else could be the
problem, or if I'm right, how I could fix it?
donyboy73: clean the carb and watch my tecumseh carburetor videos
j k: On my snow king 80 my gov keeps rev in and out and the muffler gets red and
backfires allot but under a load throwing snow it runs fine. Why?
