The priming bubble can look totally perfect, but all it takes is a pin hole and right around the retaining ring is hard to spot a crack and you should also check fuel lines in tank

Have toro 418 snow thrower prime it and starts but immediately stalls can only keep running if I keep pushing the primer button what's wrong


The fuel pickup tube in the carburetor is probably clogged. I don't know how handy you are, but you have to remove the carb, disassemble it and blow out all the orfices with compressed air and possibly run thin wires into the tubes and holes. Good Luck! the last time I had to do this was in the middle of a snowstorm!

Carberater for my snow thrower isn't getting gas


The carburetor could be clogged. Try spraying some carb cleaner into the engine to see if it starts. If it does, then some part of the carb may have varnish clogging some of the ports.

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.

Around the back of the engine, just below the cylinder cooling fins. The shut off should face you if standing in front of the recoil starter, for the fuel tank. The fuel line should wrap around I the side of the carb and be protected by the metal cover surrounding it.

Walbro WT891 carb on a Craftsman chainsaw. Carb is brand new, all fuel lines and fule filter replaced. I prime the carb with the little plunger, chainsaw starts up and runs out of fuel within 30 seconds....


Who connected these hoses? the normal routing for a machine with a primer is like this, the fuel hose from the tank with the filter on the end goes to the carb fuel inlet nozzel ( not to the primer ) nearest to the pump cover ( cover on carb held with one screw ) the pipe from the metering side of the carb connects to the shorter nozzel on the primer bulb ( suction side ), the longer nozzel on the primer ( pressure side ) connects to the pipe going back to the tank, just remember the primer pulls fuel from the carb,into the bulb, and pushes it back into the tank, it is not actually a primer it is a purge. because it is connected this way it is impossible to flood the engine no matter how many times the bulb is pressed.
Let me know if it starts and runs.
