Sounds like your carb needs rebuilt .This condition is caused by blockage of ports and jets in the carb .Running a fuel stabilizer will help prevent this .

I have an older craftsman snow blower 10 hp. It starts ok with full choke, runs ok half choke, backfires with no choke-run position.


It's too lean; not enough fuel mixed with the air. Look for the main mixture screw--it should be a large screw with a spring under it on the carburetor. Run the engine until it's warm.

With the engine running, turn the screw outward (lefty-loosey) about 1/8 turn slowly and see if it improves. Slowly turn the screw back and forth until it runs best with the choke completely off. Then set it 1/8 turn richer (turn screw outward 1/8 turn) than the best position.

Reason for doing this: Conditions change, even the barometric pressure. Small engines run okay if they are a little rich but not if they are a little lean.

How to start Echo ppt-266


Fill with correct fuel/oil mix. turn switch to I. Pump primer bulb 4-5 times. Turn choke on. Pull starter until engine fires. Turn choke off. Pull Starter until engine runs & allow to warm up for 10 secs before trying to engage throttle. If it doesn't start after 3-4 pulls with no choke then try same sequence again. May have to use 1/2 choke after engine fires. If it still won't start then something is wrong with it & it will need to be checked by a service agent.

Lt1050 black smoke after 15 minutes


The black smoke and black spark plugs indicate that the engine is running very rich (ie too much fuel). This could be caused by the choke not opening fully after the engine starts and the fuel mixture is too rich OR the fuel mixture setting is opened too far.
Check the choke lever, make sure the choke is fully open when the choke is in the running position.
When the engine is running with the throttle is in the 3/4 rev position then adjust the fuel mixture to get the highest RPM.

Check your magneto. I have had them cease to function whenever they would get hot. When cooled down, they would work.

Have to choke to keep running


this is not hard to do here is what you need , 1 can of carb cleaner anykind will do , a 10 mm rench to remove the bowl 7/16 socket . now remove the carb take a good look where the spring is before you take the carb off it muct go back in the same hole , now that you have it off take the bowl off remove the float place to the side here is the fun part look in the carb you will see some small hole spray them this will clean all of the old gas out if you can let it set for about 10 min then do it again blow out with air if you have one nothing else to do but reinstall this works most of the time ...Good Luck..
