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

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!

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

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.

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.

I bought a Sears craftsman worked great for last 4 years. This winter it's

right away. Any ideas.

Used this video and the carb cleaning video to fix a freebie toro snow

other way to say it... Don's the man!

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

I have the older type carburetor, When I prime it, fuels squirts out near
the top, an inch or so above the bowl gasket... Do i need a new carb, do
you think? I took it apart and the float has a crack in it also.

I have the 8HP version which is giving me problems this year. It starts OK

throttle. It also shuts off after a 30 to 45 sec run. But restarts rught

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.

Author Mig .Monkey (8 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.

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.

First time with my snowblower... seems like it's revving too high. Not sure
what it's supposed to sound like. Do you adjust the upper screw CW or CCW
to decrease idle speed?
