HOW TO ADJUST SNOWBLOWER CARBURETOR




What do you think about this video?

sammy 9000: Hi donyboy. I have Stiga snowblower with 8hp Tecumseh and i have a red glowing exhaust mufler when running full gas. Engine works fairly good maby litle misfire and some blue flame comes out to mufler, you can see flame and red glow clearly when you run it evening when its dark outside. Reason why i ask should i do something to fix it cause i dont want to burn exhaust valve or something else. What you think is this problem fuel mixture issue engine running lean or is exhaust valve clearence too small and valve doesnt close full? Carburetor is that newer model, nozzles cant be adjusted. I measured engine compression cold motor and it showed 55psi is that good or bad to that engine? Maby i should measure it again when engine is hot... cause if valve clearance is too small valve won't close fully when engine is hot i think? If this problem turns out to be too small valve clearance, is the job to fix it pain in the butt and do you have a video where you do a similar job. If i find there allready burned exhaust valve can i find somewhere a new valve to this motor? I live in Finnland and i'm pretty sure that i need to order it from USA cause this blower is probably around year 2000 model and the spareparts this old model is hard to find our retailers. Sorry my bad english and thanks if you bother to answer. :)

Clare Dejong: I like that you kept it simply. Thanks for the information.

Garry Burgess: I'm buying a brand new Honda snowblower, but I want to watch as many videos like this to make fewer mistakes than I made with m MTD, which still runs OK, but I'm giving that to one of my kids. Probably what saved me all of these years was fuel stabilizer.

Jim Bigger: Don, I recently put a carb kit in My Tecumseh 10hp and adjusted it to your recommendations. I found it wouldn't stay running but I moved the engine speed governor Linkage and it stayed running and ran perfect. I havent used it since until today and it will not stay running. It's like once the fuel from priming is used it dies. I played with the linkage a little bit and it would stay running but at a very low rev. As soon as it tried to rev up - it would bog out and die. Any suggestions?

Bob Berg: Hey Dony I have a 1980 model Toro 7/24 and after a motor swap with same year and model the blower does not run. I may have hooked up the linkage wrong or set the carburator up wrong. It ran for a littl;e bit and then I was not able to start it. I did a minor rebuild to the carb and still no luck. 

Bruce Albarado: hi donyboy73..I have a 8 hp techumseh snow blower I just replaced the throttle control arm.Put my linkages back where they were.If I throttle up it wont throttle down..not sure what is happening any ideas would be helpful..not a small eng guy but have learned a lot from watching your vids.need help here I'm lost on what to do...please help

thersten: Great job. Once again your videos are the best videos online!

Cheryl Everett: My husband bought an old tecumseh snow blower last year. It wasn't running that well this year. After watching your carb cleaning and adjusting videos - it now runs fine. He says 'thanks for the great videos!'

Verne Potvin: Have a Tecumseh 10hp with fuel dump at bottom of bowl and adjusting screw. Question....I have set up the governor etc and adjusted the fuel mix and idle. But as oon as I put it under load, the unit bogs down and quits. Any suggestions ????

Susan A. Enns: Thank you very much for an easy to follow video. You made it simple for someone who knows nothing about carburetors. Much appreciated!

Wayne Perkins: Thanks donyboy73, Without your video I'd have been lost. Followed your suggestions and darn if the John Deere 828d snow blower seems to be running and idling the best it has in a long while. Thanks so much for posting your videos.

Raman B. Chauhan: Million Thanks. I followed your precise instructions and my 27 year old Sears Snowblower is still chugging along without ever visiting a shop. Thanks so much for posting your videos. You are doing us a big favour. Seasons Greetings to you and your family. 

Garry Burgess: I was pretty unhappy with my MTD that had a lot of problems that it should not have had, even when brand new.

Craig Arndt: Very helpful Dony. 

guitartec: Should the choke be off to do these adjustments?

george flanagan: Thanks donyboy73 folloe your 3videos on 8 hp carburetor and works fine on my snowking snow blower thanks again 

pei bossman: very good, thank you...

aWoodchuckTunaMelt: I recently acquired a snowblower with a Tecumseh HMSK80 engine from my grandfather, and long story short i dont have nor can get the original carb. According to the owners manual it had the non adjustable carb on it, I, not realizing it at the time, purchased an adjustable model. After installation and despite my best efforts to tune it it just wants to surge. Are the jets on the non adjustable model carbs bigger/smaller? Iv spent hours fiddling with the mixture screws to relatively no change. Any help would be greatly appreciated, im at my wits end with this thing!

Jim Bigger: It has the fuel mixture idle screw and the float adjustmen screw on the bowl

Jim: So my blower would not stay going when i closed the choke - only stayed going with choke on. I adjusted the engine speed governor and it stayed going when I closed the choke. Was that the best adjustment/ solution for my problem? Thanks!

tellebracht: Awesome! Runs like a champ now!

Vin Bellissimo: you and I must have learned the same hard way... I drilled out the cover on my old Simplicity so i could get to the high speed screw. I find your videos very helpful 

Tim Miller: Hello don I have a 17" snapper le and it doesn't throw snow well even after replacing padles and scraper. Any ideas. Thanks tim

angus kangus: As a new home owner I have to say your video's have helped me a lot Thank You !

ugotit33x: Excellent explanation thank you

Stokersrule: I bought my snowblower used a while back and was about to replace it after trying everything, including a trip to a small engine shop, to get it running properly. After this tutorial coupled with your governor vid, it threw like a new machine last year. I just realized I hadn't commented while telling a family member about it. Anyway, thanks so much, great job! :)

RUSSELL PETERSEN: I REBUILT MY TECUMSEH CARB OLDER MODEL 825. IT IDLES GREAT BUT WHEN I TRY TO INCREASE SPEED IT DIES EVERY TIME. PLEASE HELP

Richard Kim: Great Video, Donny. I followed your 3 step process to rebuild the Tecumseh carburetor on my Toro 521 snowblower. This video completed the repair to get it running at top performance. Thanks for making it VERY easy to follow.

gerry6310: As usual Donny, you make a great video so I can fix this items myself, saves me a a lot of cash On a pension now

sparc500: Thanks a lot.. very clear explanation, I got a new carburetor for my Tecumseh and needed an explanation of the process to go through.. works great now.

Michael Hammer: my carb is leaking fuel, and it is not running well. i tried cleaning out the jets and ports with it on the snowblower. i did remove the bowl and clean it and the purge jet. i did not remove the float, and clean the needle, and seat. i am thinking the seat is dirty and not letting the needle seat properly.

James Braun: One of my neighbors gave away a 179CC Craftsman electric start snowblower. I started and it runs, but runs rough. Do you have a recommended video on how to start diagnosing this problem. Thank you.

Yiannis-limnos: Donny, I have an 8HP Tecumseh engine in my snow blower, I cleaned and the carb and it does not stay running unless the choke is fully closed. Any suggestions?

shizermuffin: Excellent video. Thank you

Big Rockk: Thanks a ton Dony, exactly what I needed to know. The old girl is running good now, as usual an excellent video!

arbab go: thanks man

Yiannis-limnos: p/s great videos!!

J Smitty: Where is the air filter on the newer engines?

Stephen Kuper: I bought a Sears craftsman worked great for last 4 years. This winter it's seems to surge up and down during idle and when underload. Sometimes small backfire after coming out of being under load if load not put back on it right away. Any ideas.

James Guild: Hammer, Mine was leaking bad and I discovered it was the bowl gasket.

bsox67: Used this video and the carb cleaning video to fix a freebie toro snow blower and got it running like a top...Then moved on to a problematic husky saw and fixed it (broken gas line) by watching Don's chain saw vids. No other way to say it... Don's the man!

fjqtaxch9: Great video how-to! Enabled me to tune my 18 year old Toro with the old style Tecumseh 10hp engine. The shute had been clogging in the heavy wet snow we've been having. Doesn't clog anymore!

strangebrutoo: I have the "more recent" type of carburetor. If the carburetor can not be adjusted by a fuel mixture screw, then how is that mixture adjusted? My engine has a few problems. It wont idle, it just conks out if I lower the throttle less than half. I tried to adjust the idle speed, it didn't do much. Also, more importantly, it doesn't run as strong as I would like at full throttle. I tried to adjust the full throttle speed, that helped a little but hard to tell how much to rev up. In addition, and most importantly, I have to keep choke about halfway, even after its completely warmed up for 20 minutes. if I put the choke on 'no choke' or 'full choke', it doesn't run well at all. Is that normal? Any ideas? thanks

Roomie Kay: Great video, such a young man with so much knowledge, I have gotten less information from a guy thats been in business for 30 years. 

Pro1er: Nice video and very nice camera work!

Robert Banas: Awesome videos! Can't wait to get this old 87 craftsman snowblower running tomorrow. Gonna clean and readjust the carb according to your advice and should be up and running in no time. Thanks Again!

irtoast: Great videos. Just saved me a ton of time. Thanks.

K Walt: Terrific and super informative videos. All of your information is right on target and 100% accurate. I appreciate the time you have taken to prepare your videos. They have saved me a lot of time correcting issues and saving spending unnecessary money. Many, many thanks. Ken W..

majordave100: Feakin worked! Smooth running - was surging like a madman and stalling before I ever got to the notch down low - THANKS!

Dylan Forrest: well it run then die then run and die 

Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
