Kris Lachapelle: hey donyboy73 can you give me the spec of the width on the Tecumseh carburetor tool. Spacing for the float to bowl.....i.e. .25 .125 .187 or 1/4 1/8 3/16 if all you got is a tape measure
W. Gator: W. Gator 1 second ago Don, CTC is still playing your video here in Gander. I have a problem with my lawn mower. It sucks the primer bulb in an then shuts off, I hook it out and it is good for a while, then it does it again, what is the problem and do you have a video on it?
Ed Woosters: Don such excellent videos, total detail, no camera shake, thorough.
My Tecumseh carb problem is thus. Shortly after I start the snow blower then make a right hand loop turn gas pours out of the carb. I pulled the carb off today to inspect it and found where the fuel is coming from. To the right of the welsh plug above the # 516 very close to where the priming bulb tube comes into the carb is a tiny pinhole. It looks like it's supposed to be there not like corrosion or a crack. Another strange thing, even if gas is pouring out of the pin hole the engine keeps running though rough because the fuel supply is inconsistent. Shornlion@gmail.com Thanks Ed W
jdt1130: Hi Don,
First, excellent videos. You are great at what you do, and you help so many people with your videos.
I have a Craftsman snowblower with a Tecumseh engine. I'm having carb issues. Gas is pouring out of my carburetor. I'm fairly certain that the bowl gasket is sealed properly. The gas flows out when I unscrew the bowl adjustment screw past 1/2 turn. So unless the adjustment screw is tight against the fixed nut of the jet, gas just pours out. What gives?
Benjamin Marshall: thank you so much. I had to rebuild a carb on a go kart and you helped so much. we would have never gotten it done without this video
slimjimandpepsi: hey donyboy, my 3 hp tec. carb on my snowblower has a hole on the side, is it missing a needle or a screw?
donyboy73: let me know how you make out
Thomas Blankenship: That explains why we don't feel fuel, we change both o-rings on the emulsion tube and used the back end of the drill bit to put it in place. Thanks for getting back so fast.
donyboy73: the bulb in the tecumseh only pushes air in, you may want to check the emulsion tube, there are 2 o-rings, do a search onmy channel for emulsion tube
Thomas Blankenship: Like the others I want to thank you for the indepth videos. A friend and I are rebuiding LEV120 with a 640142 Carb. The engine is all together, we rebuild the carb but now it will only run when we pour the gas. I doesn't feel like the primer (new) bulb is pulling any fuel. This project if for the Rehabilitation Project in our area. Any suggestions, we are out of guesses.
Al Pratte: Hi Dony,
first...Great videos! Thanks for posting. I have a Tecumseh 8hp Noma snowthrower that just won't start. I worked great last season, now won't turn over. I changed the plug , but still nothing. Any suggestions? We have a blizzard heading this way. Thanks in advance. Al, in lil' Rhody RI
G Bob: The needle and seat on the float eh! I'll try that tomorrow. Great videos by the way keep it up
donyboy73: check the needle and seat
G Bob: Hey Dony,
I tore my carb apart as usual without any issues. My problem now is that when I shut the motor down I'm leaking fuel like crazy!!!!! I've never seen this before and am stumped as to what I've done wrong. My float bowl is lined up exactly the way you've done and doesn't seem stuck after checking twice. Any ideas?
pythons37: Thanks for posting. Just got my blower going because of your efforts, here. I never would have even tried without your videos.
mmohammed00: Dony, please read my entire message again.
donyboy73: might need a carb kit
mmohammed00: Dony, first off, thanks so much for these videos. My Ariens 10/32 wouldn't start, or would die right after starting. I bought a carb kit and rebuilt it thanks to your instruction and I got the snowblower running on the first pull. My problem now is that the engine stalls if I take the choke off. Also, the engine surges up and down a little when i take the choke down one notch, and then it begins to stall. Any ideas?
notonmywatchjunior: What if the float is too low? How does one adjust it? I don't have that problem with mine but I'm just curious.
donyboy73: no but the instructions usually come with the float and spring
