What do you think about this video?

hoober ed: donyboy73... Id like you to know, although im no stranger to mechanics in general im no expert. Your videos not only helped me but I always get my teenage boys involved fixing everything from appliances to cars to carpentry. Now they have the confidence to rebuild and adjust the Ariens 8hp. Tecumseh thanks to you.

hoober ed: donyboy73... You the man, I removed the carb and cleaned it. Set the adjustments. Engine ran to fast, and you where right. The governor was not properly set. After reset I warmed it up and fine tuned the carb. Running smoooooth now. Thank's to your videos.

Ron Goyer: Thanks, really helped.

usernamemykel: I'm in south Florida, so I don't have a snowblower, although I did have to find and wear my jacket last week.

I do have a Champion generator, which I'm trying to repair. My question to you is, re: your video, when you said ..."throttle lever in down position..." with regard to the machine to which you are demonstrating, is the "down" position where the throttle is "open" or "closed"?

Many thanks - I hope to have the generator ready for hurricane season.

Joe Soboleski: Thanks for all the info it sure helps to understand how to I am sure you had alot of troule shooting experience great job and thanks again not every one can take a snow blower in for repairs due to low income or time . It's nice how you explain things I would recommend adj. To the original specs. Thanks again

Dave N.: Wow my snowblower engine is in way better shape than the videl of course the snowblow is 11yrs old.

G Croteau: Thank you so much for you kindness, your altruism and your good explanations. You save me a lot of time, you give me the opportunity to learn how to do it instead of being totally dependent of a service, in a place with a shortage of mechanic technicians and where the service is so expensive and slow. You save me too hundreds of dollars and I'll be more safe as a winter storm is ahead. Thank you so much you're a great man !

1978garfield: I removed the carb on my 5hp Tecumseh to work on it. I marked the hole on the throttle plate that the linkage was hooked to. I reinstalled it. When the engine is not running when you move the throttle lever the throttle moves, When the engine is running the governor pushes the throttle all the way down. You can manually rev the engine by pushing on the throttle plate but it goes back to low throttle when you let go.

What did I do wrong and how do I fix it?

Hugh Mundy: just bought a Tecumseh 10.5 it starts great and idles no prob but when i put it in gear and run it dies after a few seconds like it ran out of gas 2 pulls and it starts right up...fuel line dirt or crap in the main jet ...what do you think..thanking you in advance

Fearless: Hey Donny, what do you reccomend, the max rpm to be set at on a Tecumseh 8hp, hmsk snowking engine at full trottle? 3600 rpm? I checked the engine on my Snapper and its running at around 3450 rpm at full throttle right now, but it needs a cleaning and slight adjustment. Its a 2002 year unit, it has an adjustable carb. Can I set it to 3600 rpm or should I leave it, what to you suggest? The machine always had lots of power and threw far, Im not sure if it was always at 3450 or if it dropped over time from heavy use? Thanks in advance.

Carlos Mejia: A put fuel on that engine now it won't start what that's can be

Al L: Great tutorial! You explains things very well.
I have a problem that is a related to the throttle lever, but is a bit different. I have a 1999 Ariens model 924104-ST1028 Sno-Thro with a Tecumseh model HMSK100 159391W emgine on it. I can raise the throttle lever & increase the rpms, but as I use the snow blower the lever drops & the rpms shortly drop off. So, I have to tie off the throttle leave in the max up position while snow blowing, otherwise the rpms drop off too much to blow snow well.
I thought the problem might be the Tecumseh 34663 Spring as you showed in the video above. When I checked it out, it looks intact, in one piece, plus it does work when increasing the rpms.
So, what could be the cause of losing the rpms?
Sure would appreciate some help. I would prefer not to have to buy the entire Control Bracket Assembly P/N 34677. Looking for a less expensive fix if one is available.

zzaa2691: Donyboy73: Just wanted to thank your for your excellent videos. When I started my Ariens Snow Blower this morning it was racing like crazy. NO idea why this would have occurred. I have never done anything to the carb, and it was running fine yesterday.
Followed you instructions and was able to fix the problem by adjusting the governor arm.
Motor ran great after that, but the unit would only throw snow a few feet and got bogged down in high drifts.
Went back to YouTube and found your video on adjusting and replacing the V belt. Thanks to your excellent video the hardest part was finding the right belt. - I did find a cotter pin puller to be very useful in getting the belt aligned on the wheel.
Very grateful for your help.
