fishinjunky: 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?
Sidetracker: This video doesn't seem to be working now.
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: @Geminimissions u probably need to adjust the idle screw on the side of the
rover2007514: Great job, thank you. I just rebuilt my carb and couldn't figure out the
needle! You make it easy. Best to you.
donyboy73: yes it is part of a rebuild kit
aaronac8: how do you adjust the distance between the carburetor and the float?
donyboy73: @Geminimissions set it in the hole then use a flat punch to punch it a bit
down so it expands and becomes tight
vintagecarlover: oh i never wear gloves when im working on a motor....i get better grip
donyboy73: might need a carb kit
vintagecarlover: i hae a carb cleaning video upload....ill make one tommorrow of how to
reassemble the card.....mine is really dirty....i think it mght be
shot...but i give evry carb 1 chance.....so..sub please
ringbolt9: great stuff
lawdawg1942: You wouldn't happen to have the part number for the carb kit and float for
that one? The S/N plate on mine is gone. Thanks for the video, made
cleaning mine a breeze. Still stalls out when you put it under heavy load
or throttle up to fast and the bowl is leaking. Float does not look right
compared to yours in the video. I think some body has bent float where the
Swaggasaurus318: thank you very helpful!
donyboy73: @1946santana usually number 632347
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
DHISKEY4U: i did this and reinstalled it and gas wont stop flowing through the carb
what is wrong its seems like that little plumb bob kinda thing is not
sealing in the float area please help thanks.
donyboy73: @camry01 if the muffler glows red then it is running too lean, u need to
turn out the bottom screw
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
photoman2004: Thanks for the tutorial man. You saved me some grief today!
donyboy73: @diftoyota yes or get a new one
ringbolt9: how is the float adjusted? to level ? or is there a SPEC. GOOD VIDEO
RoncoShop: @1946santana check out roncocenter . com
lawdawg1942: @donyboy73 Thanks mate. Runs like a top now!
donyboy73: @osityan definitely has to be there to prevent leakage
terry s: Now what about the check valve inside the casting, if that seizes it's
basically junk right? I have a few that have varnished very badly or
corroded from water and no matter what they will not run after cleaning
them up good. If there is a way of freeing it, let me know. My snowblower
is a Jacobsen Impereial 30 with a 8 horse techumseh.
donyboy73: @Landotter1 lol
donyboy73: no but the instructions usually come with the float and spring
Vincent J Sayson: I have the same problem as dhiskey4u. I blew compressed air thru the fuel
inlet. Could I have blown out the seat? What material is the seat made of?
I noticed in your disassembly video you used a tool and it took somewhat of
a pull to remove it. When I look in the hole I see something metallic with
a coneshaped hole. When I drop the needle in the hole by itself, it bottoms
out deeper than when it is attached to the float.
arturo: can i get a part number for a rebuild kit please,thanks
donyboy73: @legareherve i wouldn't work for you anyway, at least i'm helping other
people with my 560 videos and 6500 subscribers
donyboy73: @lawdawg1942 i think the kit # is 632347 and the float 632019a
TrackEmDownKennels: @donyboy73 thanks
donyboy73: @fredbrill1 can u send a video or some pictures?
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.
1946santana: where can i find the carburetor number for my 8hp tecumseh engine
osityan: @donyboy73 If I try to put the ring on the carb first, the bowl doesn't go
over it well. I'll have to try it again. Is the "O" ring there to stop that
area from leaking? That must be the source of my leak.... :(
donyboy73: @garyb2006 what i have is this HOW TO REPLACE Snowblower Throttle Spring
ringbolt9: oh sorry man I left that comment before watching the whole thing!! i see
you have the adjustment tool. great video and sorry for the dumb question
donyboy73: @legareherve that's funny I get job offers all the time
donyboy73: @camry01 632347
Landotter1: psssssst, bro! If the gloves are falling apart, they are doing you no good.
:-D Thanks for the information though, and very well photographed! Good job
Paul: my engine blows on mine the carb needs to be taken off and cleaned.
donyboy73: check the needle and seat
pythons37: Thanks for posting. Just got my blower going because of your efforts, here.
I never would have even tried without your videos.
1946santana: can you give me a number i can look up
diftoyota: if i need to adjust the float, how do i adjust it? do i bend the small wire
clip or the flap of the float?
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
donyboy73: good job
zman2403: It's cool you'd post a video like this. Why is the spring, which part#
632386 not used here? This spring goes in between the posts around the
float pin. I do not see any difference with or without it. I've also seen
another video which also did not use it. I also noticed in the videos that
I have seen that no one has replaced the needle seat. With the right tool,
(which I had to make) made it easier to install. Without it, it would've
been impossible without damage.
