Question about Troy Bilt, Tuffy, Rear - Tine Tiller, 4.0 Tecumseh Engine

Open Question

Hi, I have a yard machine snowblower that starts a little hard but starts. My problem is keeping it running whenever I start to remove the snow it starts to stall out, it will stay running if no load is put on it what can I do?

    When running does it surge or pulsate any before you put it under a load?

Check for another sheared shear pin.

Sounds like you broke the belt. The auger housing should be held on by a few bolts between the auger and the engine. Remove the bolts and it should come apart into two pieces. You will most likely find a broken belt there.

My snowblower will only stay on as long as I continue to push the primer. Once I stop it stalls. And the choke is closed.


The bolt that holds the carb bowl on either has an adjustment bolt or it does not. If it does not have this adjustment screw, there is a small hole in the midde of the bolt that needs to be cleaned. The hole is the jet for the carb. I usually use a wire from a price tag and then use carb cleaner with the straw to pressure clean it.

Yardman snowblower won't self-propel


Do not start to do this but put the blower in gear like you would run to drive its self and try to turn the wheels by hand and if they turn easily then you may have a shear pin that is broken or missing in the drive pulley.
Just a thought.

Not getting gas


The bulb usually doesn't feel that way, you're thinking of a small 2-cycle machine where the bulb will fill up with fuel and offer resistance when pushed. A primer on a snowblower is merely to get fuel flowing to the carb from the tank, whereas the bulb on 2-cycle items actually purges air from the fuel circuit. If you keep pressing the primer you should see fuel drip from the carb inlet. Btw, if you see where an air filter might be on other motors, a little metal cup looking thing, try removing the bolts and flipping it over so the fuel drips out easier and snow doesn't have the chance to fall into it if it were facing up. Once you see fuel dripping out, provided you ran it dry last season when you put the blower away and the carb isn't gummed up with varnish, it should start on full choke. Give it about 3-5 seconds and move it to half choke. Once it seems to want to run on its own, open the choke completely and you should be warmed up and ready to go. Also always remember to let engines idle a bit to cool down if you've been running them at high rpms.
