SOURCE: mower surging

let it surge, it will usually get better as it warms up. These 6.5 Hp engines are fine except they have an cheap badly designed carburator. Nothing can be done about this problem. They all surge eventually.

SOURCE: 8hp Tecumseh engine how to adjust carb. when I put

These symptoms indicate a rich mixture. Assuming the carb is the original (and therefore correct) one, and that it has an adjustable main jet, turn in the main jet adjustment screw on the bottom of the float bowl until the engine runs smooth.

If there is no adjustment on the float bowl, the carb will have to be removed and properly cleaned (ultrasonic cleaner recommended).

SOURCE: Tecumseh 13hp overhead valve snowblower engine starts fine than sputters and dies, replaced the carb with new and exact same symptoms, Lots of fuel at the carb.

Make sure the fuel is good. Ethanol laced fuel starts to varnish after 20 days and is no good by 30 days, it also attracts water. Be sure you have good fresh fuel, then try a new spark plug.

Tecumseh engine surge/hunt fix


10 hp HM100 on a generator. hunting and surging since new. called for a J17 plug. install a J19 (hotter plug) to fix.
The J17 cannot keep the combustion chamber hot enough for a complete burn so it might seem like a carb problem (fuel starvation).

If you didn't replace the woodruff key, you need to anyways. Another option is the cam. Have you had your coil off.to.clean it and may have possibly put.it on upside down? It is definitely your timing, it is just a process of elimination.

Wont start, have cleaned the carb, new filter, new spark plug. removed plug and grounded. Very tiny little sparks, not real single snapping spark. Any idea of what could be the problem? Ariens model...


I believe you have a timing problem. Do you remember hitting something hard with your blade? I would say you have sheared your timing key. Order of repair : remove top cover to engine, this may involve gas tank, gas line, oil filler tube. Remove flywheel nut, remove flywheel. Timing key is the small key between flywheel and crankshaft. Timing key may just be dented but it will need to be replaced. Bring it with you, Tecumseh has a few different styles of key depending on engine and year.
GOOD LUCK.
