HOW TO ADJUST SNOWBLOWER CARBURETOR




What do you think about this video?

Garry Burgess: 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.

Cheryl Everett: 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!'

Raman B. Chauhan: Million Thanks. I followed your precise instructions and my 27 year old Sears Snowblower is still chugging along without ever visiting a shop. Thanks so much for posting your videos. You are doing us a big favour. Seasons Greetings to you and your family. 

Wayne Perkins: Thanks donyboy73, Without your video I'd have been lost. Followed your suggestions and darn if the John Deere 828d snow blower seems to be running and idling the best it has in a long while. Thanks so much for posting your videos.

george flanagan: Thanks donyboy73 folloe your 3videos on 8 hp carburetor and works fine on my snowking snow blower thanks again 

Susan A. Enns: Thank you very much for an easy to follow video. You made it simple for someone who knows nothing about carburetors. Much appreciated!

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

Craig Arndt: Very helpful Dony. 

guitartec: Should the choke be off to do these adjustments?

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

Jim: 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? Thanks!

Vin Bellissimo: you and I must have learned the same hard way... I drilled out the cover on my old Simplicity so i could get to the high speed screw. I find your videos very helpful 

Tim Miller: Hello don I have a 17" snapper le and it doesn't throw snow well even after replacing padles and scraper. Any ideas. Thanks tim

angus kangus: As a new home owner I have to say your video's have helped me a lot Thank You !

ugotit33x: Excellent explanation thank you

RUSSELL PETERSEN: I REBUILT MY TECUMSEH CARB OLDER MODEL 825. IT IDLES GREAT BUT WHEN I TRY TO INCREASE SPEED IT DIES EVERY TIME. PLEASE HELP

Stokersrule: 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! :)

Richard Kim: 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 follow.

gerry6310: As usual Donny, you make a great video so I can fix this items myself, saves me a a lot of cash On a pension now

sparc500: 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.

Yiannis-limnos: Donny, I have an 8HP Tecumseh engine in my snow blower, I cleaned and the carb and it does not stay running unless the choke is fully closed. Any suggestions?

arbab go: thanks man

Big Rockk: Thanks a ton Dony, exactly what I needed to know. The old girl is running good now, as usual an excellent video!

Yiannis-limnos: p/s great videos!!

Michael Hammer: 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.

J Smitty: Where is the air filter on the newer engines?

Dylan Forrest: well it run then die then run and die 

Stephen Kuper: 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.

James Guild: Hammer, Mine was leaking bad and I discovered it was the bowl gasket.

bsox67: 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!

Steven Zucchi: Thanks, nice explanation!

fjqtaxch9: Great video how-to! Enabled me to tune my 18 year old Toro with the old style Tecumseh 10hp engine. The shute had been clogging in the heavy wet snow we've been having. Doesn't clog anymore!

James Braun: 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.

strangebrutoo: 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

Roomie Kay: Great video, such a young man with so much knowledge, I have gotten less information from a guy thats been in business for 30 years. 

Pro1er: Nice video and very nice camera work!

Robert Banas: Awesome videos! Can't wait to get this old 87 craftsman snowblower running tomorrow. Gonna clean and readjust the carb according to your advice and should be up and running in no time. Thanks Again!

irtoast: Great videos. Just saved me a ton of time. Thanks.

K Walt: Terrific and super informative videos. All of your information is right on target and 100% accurate. I appreciate the time you have taken to prepare your videos. They have saved me a lot of time correcting issues and saving spending unnecessary money. Many, many thanks. Ken W..

majordave100: Feakin worked! Smooth running - was surging like a madman and stalling before I ever got to the notch down low - THANKS!

stev379: 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.

tim pontius: My carb is leaking and I replaced the bowl gasket

Mig .Monkey: 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.

MrZombieIsHungry: 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. 

J Smitty: Where is the air filter on the newer engines?

tchjjal: Thanks. This was very helpful!

TheTbubba: 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. Cheers Ron

Daniel Goins: This was good had to familiarize with this carb,mine has more issues than news week. 

steve M: Man you my hero.u too smart and you do a good job.

Mario Lap: 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
