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.

Author Cheryl Everett (6 days)
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!'

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 ????

Author Wayne Perkins (17 days)

Should the choke be off to do these adjustments?

Author Garry Burgess (1 month)
I was pretty unhappy with my MTD that had a lot of problems that it should
not have had, even when brand new.

Author Jim (12 days)
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?

trying everything, including a trip to a small engine shop, to get 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!

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.

right away. Any ideas.

Great video how-to! Enabled me to tune my 18 year old Toro with the old

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.

Author strangebrutoo (10 months)
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

Author stev379 (11 months)
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.

My carb is leaking and I replaced the bowl gasket

Author Mig .Monkey (11 months)
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.

Author MrZombieIsHungry (1 year)
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.
