Snowblower Spark Plug Gap

I have a 1970 (7 hp) Bobcat snowblower. But because it was a gift, I do not have the manuals to go with it, so I am unable to find out the proper spark plug gap.

The new spark plug that I purchased at a small engine repair shop did not work until I enlarged the gap. While it now operates fairly well, I do not know if that is the proper gap.

Any ideas?

SOURCE: My riding lawn mower won't start. New battery

Spray starting fluid into the air box if it starts and dies out there is a fuel delivery problem if the mower has a petcock fuel shut of valve disconnect the fuel line after the petcock and hold a container under the hose turn on the valve to ensure gas flow to carb if there is no petcock valve I would still check the line to carb make sure gas flows through the hose to carb.

SOURCE: my ariens snowblower only works in the choke

had same problem with a small 2 cycle outboard motor last year. I had run it during the summer, put it away for the winter and when I went to fire it up the following Spring it would only run with half to full choke. Old fuel had gummed up the carburater by letting it sit in there for a few months, had to disassemble and clean all the carb parts (including the jets) and it worked good as new. You could do it yourself or take carb to a small engine repair shop and have them do it. May or may not require a rebuild kit depending on how gummed up it is. Hope this helps.

My bobcat I can't get my snowblower to work it was working but not now it's on a 185 bobcat

ck that your remote hydraulics are active , sometimes when switching implements around from diff units , we here find that remotes are not active (factory done) so a new valve body needs to be sourced from mfg to get them active

Oil for a snapper snowblower 16223

I found the manual for you snowblower, and it's a two stage snowblower, so I am assuming you need two stage oil. Ultimately you need to get that information from the engine manual, and you haven't provided the engine information in you posting. This is the link for the blower manual:

How to remove mower deck & put on snow blower model # 917.289101

Here is the operator's manual for your mower.
Page 22-24 shows you how to remove the mower. You will need the manual for the snowblower to mount it to the tractor.
If you don't have the manual for the snowblower go to Under the manuals tab put in the model number of the snowblower (you will find it on the snowblower and it looks like 123.123456)
You can view, download, and print the manual there.
It is a pretty big job. It will take you about 5 minutes to remove the mower and about 3 hours to mount the snowblower.
Let me know what other questions you may have.
