My wife purchased a snow blower (Imperial heavy duty Jacobsen 2 stage) a couple of weeks ago. He showed her how to start it, but when I got home she couldn't remember how to start it. She said he had it working when she got it. I've just moved to a area where there is a lot of snow, so this is my first snow blower. Does any one have a owners manual they can email me, or step by step instructions. The seller told my wife he just put a new honda motor on it. If that helps-I need to know where I have the choke or settings for the engine.

If you didn't run it completely dry of Gas last season I bet the Ethanol gas messed up your carburetor
I take it that you have a 2-stage snow blower, that is is has the auger blades and then the 2-stage impeller. The impeller blade is damaged <<OR>> the motor is to small to through the snow far. If you have a 5-horse engine and throwing heavy snow, the snow may not go as far as the light fluffy stuff.
A single stage snow thrower is not designed to throw snow far, just move it over a bit.
You should check for belt condition and adjustment. Under more load the auger/impeller belt might start to slip and would result in poor performance. For improved performance in wet slush there is an "impeller modification" that can be found with a web search. It's adding rubber wipers to the impeller blades and it does a great job of tossing that stuff out the chute instead of clogging it.
I did a search for Homelite 52642. There are several sites out there with a type of manual running from 25-30 USD. Try looking at a search like I did. Did not see anything on Homelite's site. Maybe the unit is older than 10 years.
