Hi roaddoctor86; I suspect that your carb is the source of your problem in the fuel system. I always drain the fuel in my 2 cycle and even 4 cycle engines and then start them and run them dry, before I put them up for the winter/. I would suggest you drain the tank or at least take most of the gas out and then add a can of gas treatment/solvent and see if that helps. Something like Heet I think is one product.

Hope this helps good Luck Loriongh ps Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks

Hi roaddoctor86,

I aggree, you do have a carburetor problem, Loringh gave great advise for preventive maintenance but the damage already is done to your carb. You may be best of by just buying a new carb to get your snowblower working again. The old carb may need complete refurbishment. I believe just letting it sit in some sort of carb cleaner does not do the trick, I tried that myself and the carb still did not work right.

I tried cooking it in distilled water for an hour and still did not help, save yourself the aggrevation and just buy a new one and your back in business.

Hope this helps

Troy built storm 2890 snowblower slow in reverse


There is an inspection pan on bottom of snow blower remove the 2 or 4 bolts and drop pan
inside you will see an aluminum wheel (drive wheel) also a rubber faced wheel whitch runs on the aluminum wheel at a right angle (like a needle runs on a record on a record player.
Clean plate and rubber wheel using brake clean to degrease surface .
Also there is an adjustment to move the rubber wheel farther to the left for more reverse speed but in doing that you might lose top speed forward.

How come my troy snowblower stalls when I move the choke switch from choke to run ?


Most likely issue is dirty carburetor. Dissasemble and clean with carb cleaner or sea foam (let parts soak in it, if possible), reassemble. Could also be head gasket, but less likely.

All outflow stops when I start the motor on my Troy-bilt 2600 pressure washer. What's up?


Could also be crack/leak in HP pump. If it were left in cold weather without antifreeze, I'd check there first. Part + labor might warrant new washer if more than a couple years old.
Sorry.

My troy bilt horse has serial number 544253, can anyone tell me what the model number is and what year it was built? Thanks


if you have a B&S engine look at the frist two numbers on the code. thats the year of the engine and more likelyof your unit, As long as the motor has'nt been replaced. I'll checked on your serial number did'nt find a model. If this is an old troy built I'll have to call tech support. also I need to know what engine 4, 4.5, 6, 7, 8, hr power, and the name of the teller. MTD now owens troy built.

Pony only runs with chocke 98% closed


Most likely the carburetor jet is still clogged after sitting for years with fuel in it. Putting injector/carb cleaner in the fuel tank may help, but if not, the jet needs to be soaked some more -- or replaced.

Follow mixing proportions on the label for injector cleaner.
