Paul Huskey: 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?
noclouds111: dony, you were born to teach. Thanks!
Daniel Goins: This was good had to familiarize with this carb,mine has more issues than
Dylan Forrest: well it run then die then run and die
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.
flamethis: 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.
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
David Allan: Very nice video. You did a really nice job showing all those screws. Clear
and instructive. Thanks.
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.
pete barber: Great video bro...keep on keeping on...hope the wife is feeling better...
J Smitty: Where is the air filter on the newer engines?
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.
MyDailyFocus: Hey dony! Love your videos. I have a snow blower that starts and idles but
shuts off as soon as it touches even 2" of snow. I've been told maybe I'm
getting too much air. Any tips?
David Chipkin: Thank you. Prior to your video I watched some other one that helped me
rebuild the carp. Yours help me get it running perfectly. Thanks
tchjjal: Thanks. This was very helpful!
Shawn Stewart: I just cleaned and adjusted per your great videos and my exhaust smokes
when I stop the engine? Its an older craftsman snow blower with 5 hp. What
Mark Trachy: I need that first carb...any idea of where I can get it?
stevemarini: I have the 8HP version which is giving me problems this year. It starts OK
but dies if you try to shut off the choke and run at less than full
throttle. It also shuts off after a 30 to 45 sec run. But restarts rught
away. I had drained the fuel last year and replaced with fresh feuk this
nfldgolfer: your exhaust valve need to be grind down a little bit .check the
Bertminator: 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.
Terry g: Thanks for your help bud, you fixed my issue...good video.
Andrew D: My old Simplicity 8hp snowblower was surging at high rpm's. Your advice for
adjusting the screw under the bowl was perfect. I did take the carb apart
and gave it a good cleaning just so I could feel like I contributed
something. Thanks x 10 to the 6th.
Jason1Pa: So how do you adjust the newer style carbs? I've messed around with two
other ones that have the old style and I got them to run good with no
surge. Now I have one that someone gave me and it has the new style. It
surges as well,but was shocked to see no adjustment screws
pinkfloyd801 .: If mine is running rich do I adjust the idle mixture screw?
donyboy73: the one under the carb bowl
Bolt Speedman: it's not a mystery
donyboy73: you're welcome
SmokinTyres26: I would like to give you a huge THANK YOU for taking the time to post this
video. I just moved from 4000 feet to 7200 feet in altitude and there is a
big snow storm set to hit tomorrow night and thanks to you my snowblower is
running again. THANKS!
whitegreg56: My Ariens works great except for one problem. When moving a lot of snow the
engine suddenly stalls out for no apparent reason. It has nothing to do
with the auger/impeller get jammed up. I've found that if I shake the whole
blower as it starts to stall, it sometimes comes back. I did clean the
carburetor and adjust the mixture screws. Is this likely a problem with the
high-speed jet getting plugged?? Or, something else??? Should I drain the
Lucian Marin: Great vids! I have the same Tec engine with the old carburetor and when I
prime it it squirts gas and the priming rubber feels spongy as if it's not
building pressure. Do you know what it could be?
VlogginLife: Thanks man...I think you just saved me some time. I just did a rebuild on
my tecumseh carb and its running fine with full choke but when you turn the
choke off it sputters and dies. I ended up setting the fuel mixture screw
out 2.5 turns..looks like I went a bit too far.
donyboy73: @papasmeghead lol, i had a guy drop a snowblower off when it was 80 degrees
donyboy73: from it being tightened
donyboy73: @ChannelErik thank you sir
DeepFriedFuzzball: @troutbum1000 I'm not Dony and he knows best of course, and I agree getting
a new cap is best but maybe you could rest the metal cap on and heat up a
punch and melt a new lip on the pin that might work, just a suggestion but
Dony knows best here :]
komododragon2007: @AztecBodyart i know why, it's a Craftsman!!!!
Doubird28: Hi, I have a newer craftsman snowblower without the carb adjusting screw.
It runs fine on full or half choke, but runs rough on Run(choke off). I
tried adjusting the idle screw but the screw is now all the way in and it
still runs a little rough. Any thoughts on what to do next? Thanks.
whitegreg56: Does anyone know if it's possible to have the high-speed mixture screw set
so rich that the engine consumes more fuel at W.O.T. than can get past the
inlet seat/needle??? I'm having trouble with the engine stalling under
high-RPM with high-load conditions. Seems like the engine is fuel starved.
donyboy73: you're welcome
stdudly01: hey dony i'm having a problem with my snowblower i have a 9hp tecumseh
snowblower engine. i have the older style carburetor. it runs good when i
start blowing snow the engine bogs down then it picks up and does it again.
i took the carburetor apart and clean it up and put it back together and is
still doing can you tell me what i should do to fix the problem hope to
hear from you soon.
topfuelrocker: YOU ROCK MAN!! My craftsman 10/32 is back from the dead thanks to you!! You
are awesome at making this stuff understandable, and I just cant thank you
enough!!! God bless ya bud!!!
James Hedges: My 2005 8.5 hp Troy-Bilt Storm 8526 Tecumseh Snow Blower LF318SA has
started to backfire out through the exhaust. It Is is a fixed jet. I
replaced the gas, replaced the spark plug, took the bowl off and sprayed
the carb and cleaned the bowl, and cleaned the fixed jet (the bowl and jet
do not appear dirty). The engine starts on the first pull but then starts
to back fire when running. Any suggestions?
donyboy73: try turning out the bottom screw just a bit, if it doesn't idle well then
unscrew the idle air screw on the side a bit
donyboy73: you're welcome
donyboy73: @joestetson142 your welcome, nice to hear stuff like that
The1Camshaft: Very easy to understand you do an excellent job explaining what you are
donyboy73: yes there is valve lash on this engine but i would have to make a vid
bayliner2568: Thank you for your instruction snowblower video. My 11hp Briggs & Stratton
engine is not much different and i did everything you did and I was able to
adjust my fuel mixture and points. My engine runs great. Thank you. You did
a great job. A+A+A+
