Question about Troy Bilt, Tuffy, Rear - Tine Tiller, 4.0 Tecumseh Engine
I was given an Ariens Sno Thro with a Tecumseh 5 hp motor model OHH50 engine family 3TPXS.195 IBA. The previous owner said it did run but now there is no POP. I don't have equipment to check anything electrical. If I you could give me some tips to begin with that I can try before taking it to an expensive repair shop, I would certainly appreciate the help.
Thank you for your help,
First thing is to empty the old gas out of the gas tank completely... (Pull off the fuel line from the tank) next look under heater box where the carburetor is there is a bowl with a brass bolt, (1/2") remove it and let the rest of the fuel drain out... Next look at the brass bolt (carb jet) and clean off any debris, take a safety pin and clean out the 2 holes on top and sides... Reassemble bolt to snug... Re connect fuel line and add new fuel (fresh!!!!!!)

Check the fuel. Pour some fuel into a clear jar and let it set. See if it seperates due to water in the fuel. Very common problem.
