31pockets: Poochar thanks for your email question. The High speed idle mixture is set
on most new style engines in the prefixed main jet part of the carburetor!
If the engine runs good the only thing to adjust is the top speed 3,600 RPM
setting with the governor adjustment,
31pockets: @simpsonxpress In this video the wrench is a 7/16 but, some older snow
kings can sometimes be 3/8
mustie1: Hi does that tach work on twin engines also? thanks
31pockets: @PhungDuyvo it is usually on the air flow hosing. thanks
31pockets: @fotoflojoe I tried to make it easy as I could to understand the settings.
TRaasken: Hello from Sweden! You really made my day! We had 2 feet of snow and my
snowblower was running so lean that I had to choke it up two steps to make
it run. When I desdperately Googeld about Tecumseh I ran into Your
fantastic 7 step tutorial on Youtube. After cleaning tank, hose and the
Carb´itself the motor was running like it was brand new. Next snowfall I
will adjust both low end and high end nozzles just to make it run perfekt.
Maybe I will invest in a new sparkplug to? Many thanks!
31pockets: Hi 1TINBEATER, and thanks for your email question? The Tachometer or
Sirometer is easy to get, their sold through Briggs&Stratton part suppliers
and are in the B&S Service and Repair Instructions for Single Cylinder 4
Cycle Engines. They are in this Manuel Book in Chapter 13 on page number 5
seen right at the top of the page, their B&S part number is Tool NO. 19200,
I hope this helps. Thanks again 31
31pockets: so if your engine has the low speed idle mixture set screw on the side of
the carburetor only, Like most new style engines have, you will still need
to adjust that point in the same manor as the older style engine seen in my
video to complete the setup calibration for the low speed I hope this helps
31pockets: @mustie1 That is a good price because the one in the video was about $24
from a local store, when I had the meter on the piece of cardboard it in
the beginning it was set at 2500rpm and I thought it was 2200rpm, It was my
mistake looking through the camera lens, so make sure you can see the
numbers clear before you get started with tuning thanks.
31pockets: TRaasken Thanks, We are also having a snowfall day here and Ive been a
little slow to get back with everyone lately, Im glad it worked out for
you. Many of the small engine manuals are sometimes hard to understand, so
I do the best I can to turn them into a talking story book to help others.
take care 31pockets
31pockets: 1TINBEATER, I also have the Tecumseh part number on the Vibration
Tachometer Sirometer and it can be seen in the Tecumseh Engine Mechanics
Handbook 3-10 Horsepower 4 Cycle Engines Manuel book on page 91 at the top.
(The Tecumseh part number is NO. 670156) now this tool is the same tool for
Briggs or Tecumseh, just the part numbers are different and you may haft to
order it, I dont think theyll have one in stock? Before I forget 31pockets
sblg43: A most excellent video!
tjones2269: thats a different tac never seen one like it before
simpsonxpress: What size wrench is used to take off the carb ? Is it 7/16 ?
mustie1: @31pockets thanks I found one on ebay for 10 bucks, liked how worked on
Phung Vo: Awesome instruction I have 18 year old yardman 24" wide and 7 horse power
tecumseh enginer Can you tell me how to indentify part number of carburator
Where it locate Is it on flow cover? I read number 27
31pockets: @mustie1 I have tested it with V8 engines and it usually will match the
tack in the dashboard on a car.
Bri whi: I have tecumseh 9 hp. I took the carb off to clean it an the governor
spring fell off. I have no idea where it goes or even if I need it. Can you
Brad Crawford: Thank you sir!
Joseph Cummings: This is EXACTLY what I was looking for! My Tecumseh motor was running
extremely rich and bogging down - I tinkered with the carb settings last
and kind of messed things up. With the info in this guide, I was able to
get the motor running great again. 31Pockets, thank you so much for doing
thegenrl: how do u tell if running rich or lean in the video?
