I have a Snowblower a friend gave me.
It's carb was gummed up and needed some cleaning. I took the carb off and
cleaned out the bowl and checked the float and it works. The fuel lines are
new and filter replaced. It has a new plug and the plug IS sparking.
When I push the primer it drips fuel on the ground. Is this the overflow of
the bowl? when I try to start it, it will backfire and do nothing.
It has a lever that adjusts the choke. It looks like something should bolt
where the flap of the choke is, like a air cleaner or something. If you go
to the Sear website and look at the diagram of the motor, it does not show
What do I need to do to get this thing to start? Got 6 inches of snow
coming this weekend. :)
Had almost Identical probs with a Sthil brushcutter. the shop said it was
fuel overload and leaned it right down, the vibration had caused the mix
screw to wind out too far. The manual said get it checked after every 10
hours use, this happened after about 80 hours during the gorse season.
works great now.
I don't think it has a screw in it. If I'm staring at the back of the
carb, looking at the choke flap, there is a opening on the left side.
It's a hole with nothign in it. Does that mean the screw is GONE?
if they're like tucumseh mower engines, it's cuz the dealer gets $50 a
pop to change sheer pins and clutches would last too long...
(took me 2 sheer pins before i found out that i could buy them at OSH
in a 4 pack)
Keep the shear pins in. They are there to protect the auger gearbox. Brass
gears inside the auger gearbox. A fist full of shears is way cheaper and
easier to do than the gearbox.
