Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

1 Answer

Mower won't turn over

I have a Gravely 5660 that won't turn over in the winter. I have had it tuned and the carb adjusted. It runs good in the spring and summer. We have alot of snow and I have a snow blower attachment for it. I would really like to snow blow, rather than shovel. I put in a new plug and checked for spark to the plug and gas to the cylinder, all there, just no start. Help!

PS I had to put in Toro, the site would not accept the name Gravely. It is a Gravely 5660 model # KE301S

    The Gravely 5660 is a riding mower that has different attachments that can be changed as needed. The mower is made to operate in all types of weather. Why won't it start in the winter? Are there any switches, such as an oil level switch? I also don't know how old this unit is, I bought it used about five years ago. I have it in my garage. Last winter and this winter are the only times I have tried to use it in the winter, since I have had it. As I mentioned before, after the past winter I had it tuned and a new battery. Still no start. Help.

Keep it in the kitchen over night. Or anywhere that is environmentally controlled for that matter. Should start right up as soon as you get it outside.

How do i adjust the carb on an echo blower


Not sure what carb you have..You should be able to see a spring loaded air/gas adjustment screw on the carb..once running turn clockwise until motor starts bogging down then the other way until it does the same..keep adjusting back and forth unti it runs smooth..
you may have another on the bottom of the carb bowel..do the same with it...if this doesn't work needs a rebuild kit..good luck..

Idle speed adjustment


You could also have an overused spring on the carb the connects to the govenor arm. Take the spring off and see how worn out it is.

My Ryobu RYO8554 only runs when it is in the carb lever is in the start position. ANy use of the throttle kills the engine. been that way since I bought it. Thanks Jim


Hi, if you have the lever in start that means the carb is choked. If you are only able to run the engine when the choke is on, then it is starving for fuel. First, make absolutely sure you have the right fuel mixture, then try to start the engine. If the mix is correct, then your carb is out of adjustment. Find the two screws that adjust the high and low idle on the carb. Turn the low idle one quarter turn counter clockwise and try to start the engine again. This adjustment will allow for more fuel to deliver into the cylinder. (adjust more if needed). The high idle may also be out of adjustment, so tune this screw with the throttle on high (and running) until you hear the transition between the high rumbling sound and the high even sound this point is you high idle. Good luck

Which has the most advantage fall or spring tune-up of riding mower?


Spring, especially if you are doing it yourself and don't have to wait in line to get it into the local shop. If you do a lot of fall and winter tasks with your rider like haul wood or blow snow, then fall works, too. If not, then a fall tune up is wasted, as it will just sit there all winter gunking up (or not, if you have run it dry).
That's the news from Lake Woebegone:)

Mower starts fine but conks out in about a minute or two.I changed the air filter but it still stalls a minute after starting. toro mower is about 2 years old


Recheck your fuel selector to make sure it is ON. Also if this is the first start of the season there may be old gas / debris in the bottom of the float bowl. One other area to check is the bottom of the gas tank / fuel outlet port of the tank. I don't remember if this model had an in-line fuel filter but also something to check if installed.

This is listed under Toro Mower with power tools that has a 6.5 Briggs and Stratton engine.



To clean the carb passages you will need to do the following.

(FUEL SELECTOR OFF)

1. The adjustment screw on the side of the carb that has a spring on it. You need to count the number of turns it takes turning it clockwise until it just comes up snug NOT TIGHT. Then remove it.

2, Remove the float bowl and dump the contents.

3. Spray carb cleaner in the adjustment screw hole.

4. Disconnect the fuel hose to the carb and spray carb cleaner in the brass tubing hole. The cleaner should be exiting via the float needle. Make sure float assy is down....

5. Connect the fuel line. (use a spray paint can lid and catch the fuel in this step. FUEL SELECTOR on. Catch fuel exiting carb. Lift the float to a LEVEL position and feul flow should stop. DO NOT FORCE IT! Gentle lift only.

FUEL Selector off.

6. Install float bowl

7. Re-install adjustment screw/needle/spring in the side of the carb. Turn it until it just snugs up.. then back it off the number of turns it took to initially close it before removal.

FUEL Selector on... wait 30 seconds..

7. Start mower.

That should do it.

remove the sediment bowl on the bottom of the carb,but dont lose the gasket and watch out when the float drops so the needle and spring in the bore dont fall and you lose them,then clean out any dirt in the bowl and in the needle seat andget some carb cleaner and throughly clean out all openings in the carb,its a california carb thats why there are no adjustments

Wont start


the problem is that your carbeurator is gummed from from sitting idle all winter with gas in it. Get an aerosol can of carbeurator cleaner, remove the air filter and give the air intake two squirts of carb. cleaner. Then start the mower. When it stalls again let it sit for an hour while the carbeurator cleaner works at dissolving some of that gum. Repeat the process until the mower runs again. Sometimes there is so much junk in the carb. that you have to remove it and soak it in cleaner for about three hours, and then rebuild the carb. with the proper little kit. hopefully you won't have to take this step.

Next fall let the mower run out of gas and stall then you won't have the gum in the carbeurator in the spring.

Toro timecutter spits and sputters when blades are engaged


Did you drain the fuel before you put it away? If not then you should drain the fuel and clean the carb. Gas when in lawn mowers and any other small gas engine will turn into a slim in a way and will block the carb. Drain the fuel and clean the carb system will run great when that is done
