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?

Author Michael Hammer (4 months)
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.

Author Jim Dent (7 months)
I just cleaned the carb on my snowblower which would not run for me very
well this year. It runs great now but I notice that the muffler is glowing
a bit and flames shoot out the muffler when I go from high to low RPMs.

My carb is like the first one you show in this video. Any suggestions?

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

backfire after coming out of being under load if load not put back on it
right away. Any ideas.

Author Dan Allain (6 months)
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.

Author Mig .Monkey (6 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.

if my engine is the old type, and it is surging (revving up and down
constantly in idle or in use)....which screw should I be adjusting?

Author stev379 (6 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.

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.

Author strangebrutoo (5 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 Bertminator (7 months)
Mine runs for a bit then seems to run out of fuel. Do you think this is
all that is needed? It worked fine yesterday & for a long time, but all of
a sudden, it's stalling. Please help quick!! There's a blizzard and I
really need it now.

Author Craig Stej (4 months)
I had cleaned up the carb, all ports, went down to local shop for new seal,
gasket, and needle kit, Mechanic reminded me to check the float for gas
tried to start, just sputtered, found Your recommendations, worked like a
charm, Thanks again!
