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.
george flanagan: Thanks donyboy73 folloe your 3videos on 8 hp carburetor and works fine on
my snowking snow blower thanks again
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.
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!
Craig Arndt: Very helpful Dony.
thersten: Great job. Once again your videos are the best videos online!
guitartec: Should the choke be off to do these adjustments?
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
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.
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
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
angus kangus: As a new home owner I have to say your video's have helped me a lot Thank
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
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
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
arbab go: thanks man
Big Rockk: Thanks a ton Dony, exactly what I needed to know. The old girl is running
good now, as usual an excellent video!
Yiannis-limnos: p/s great videos!!
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.
J Smitty: Where is the air filter on the newer engines?
Dylan Forrest: well it run then die then run and die
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!
Steven Zucchi: Thanks, nice explanation!
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!
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.
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!
stev379: I rebuilt a Tecumseh 5.5's carb 2 years ago, then put it away for a season
only to have it fail to start. Snow wasn't bad enough till now so I took it
apart, cleaned it and replaced a washer and cap. I would not have done as
well as I did if not for the specific details you gave and video of the
spray coming through. You made sure the glare from the light didn't prevent
understanding. My machine is running smoother and better than ever. Thank
you for taking the time to share your knowledge. You do good for people.
tim pontius: My carb is leaking and I replaced the bowl gasket
Mig .Monkey: I was messing with mine all night (just picked it up as a freebie) it won't
run. Starts if I squirt some fuel in the carb but dies right out. I'm
thinking it's the adjuster on the bottom of the bowl now. I didn't check it
before cleaning so I think I tightened it right up.
MrZombieIsHungry: My snow blower was running a bit rough and I was not sure exactly how to
adjust it to run smoother. I came on youtube looking for answers and found
your video. Thank you for a well done video that explains everything very
easy and clear as it was a great help.
J Smitty: Where is the air filter on the newer engines?
tchjjal: Thanks. This was very helpful!
TheTbubba: Hi Donny: Love your videos. Changing the drive gear on an electric starter
was a breeze thanks to you. Today I discovered that my older model Briggs
snow thrower is leaking from the plunger valve on the bottom of the carb. I
suspect the gasket inside the bowl has disintegrated. Do you have a video
that shows how to change that part out? Hopefully while leaving the carb
attached. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
TA223R: Very good info, got my machine running great, just in time for darkness,
lol. Oh well guess i get to play tomorrow. Thanks
Daniel Goins: This was good had to familiarize with this carb,mine has more issues than
steve M: Man you my hero.u too smart and you do a good job.
Mario Lap: Finally I'm going to make my snow blower work. This summer I had no time
and someone gave is snow blower and it was outside all summer. My
carburetor was all clogged. I clean it and install a new carburetor kit. I
just to make the adjustment. THANKS
Rock Levesque: thanks for the video, I will see if this work. My snow blower is an older
model and i got it all tuned up last year and it ran great all winter but
this year, it does not keep it's idle and rev up and down when the throttle
is mid way up . any suggestions?
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
