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.

I was pretty unhappy with my MTD that had a lot of problems that it should

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!

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
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.

Author Paul Huskey (11 months)
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?

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?

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!

Just watching your videos are fun and enlightening donyboy. I like to see

it. Many thanks for your taking the time and trouble to share. God Bless !

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

snow we've been having. Doesn't clog anymore!

When I purge the carb I see fuel leak out from the bowl. How can I stop

Author strangebrutoo (9 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

I started and it runs, but runs rough. Do you have a recommended video on
how to start diagnosing this problem. Thank you.

I got some small stones caught in the snowblower on second time I used it.
The auger is stuck shut and if I try to engage it it makes a high pitched
sound, but does not turn. Please offer suggestion what to fix and how.
Thank you

Author Rock Levesque (10 months)
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?

Author Pierre-Luc Simard (10 months)
Would both types of carburetor fit older generation models?

Author Mig .Monkey (10 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 Dylan Forrest (10 months)
well it run then die then run and die 

Author Mario Lap (10 months)
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

Author stev379 (10 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.
