Question about Lawn Mowers

Snow Blower engine runs very rough

I was given a Mastercraft snow blower with a Tecumseh 5 HP engine Mod # HS 50 - 67258H Ser # 8267B. I cleaned the rust of the fly wheel and magneto install new plug, unit runs very rough and dies when in gear and the auger is on. My question is can the carb be over hauled? How does the bowl come off? can the whole carb be submerged in carb cleaner?

YES THE CARBURETOR CAN BE OVERHAULED
THE REPAIR KIT PART # IS 31840 , THE BOWL IS REMOVED BY REMOVING THE BRASS NUT ON THE BOTTOM WITH A 7/16" WRENCH.YOU MAY NEED TO REMOVE THE WELCH PLUGS FOR A GOOD CLEANING. NEW PLUGS COME WITH KIT. YOU CAN SOAK CARB. IN CLEANER SHOULD BE NO LONGER THAN 15 MINUTES. ALWAYS USE NEW GASKETS. ADJUSTMENTS TO BE DONE WHEN ENGINE IS WARMED UP.

Toro 5/24 snowblower will start but dies when i start throwing snow


Had the same problem with my toro blower 5/24 and small engine guy told me that there is a screw underneath the carburator adjust it out (left) about a quarter of turn. I did that and the blower ran good for awhile but it is starting to run rough again so I think I will take it in and have it tuned up. It sounds to me like a fuel delivery problem, could be some gunk in the carberator. TW

Assuming that you have a Tecumseh engine on your machine, this should help you out a bit. Tecumseh also has some other very helpful documentation on their TecumsehPower.com website.

Where is the drain plug on a tecumseh 5.5 HP engine?


The plug is in the base of the engine so if there is a shroud in the way unfortunately you need to remove it.

Tecumseh 8hp HIGH REVING! snowblower


Hi,

be careful, if the engine over revs it may just explode. These engines are very picky if over sped and easily blow up.
Your problem may be a broken throttle control rod, have look at that first. If the control rods are fine and in place it could be the fly wheel governor is worn out.

Snow blower gets bogged down in snow.


It sounds like your engine is running lean, see if you can adjust the high throttle mixture on the carburetor (if possible at all). If there is no adjustment possible, it may be the carb is clogged and needs some service. Try cleaning it or find a new replacement carb for it.
