    I had to replace the carb, tryed to clean with no luck. Honda dealer said it a common problem passage ways are so small they sometimes need to drill them out. I removed the gas each year there is no fuel filter on this snow blower just a screen in the tank so I added an in line filter. The machine is 8 years old this is the first repairs I had to do.



    Thank you

Yes you can adjust the throttle cable, did you leave gas in it over the season, if you did this is definitley the problem, dump out the gas and pour new.

    you may be losing compression in the motor, does the compression feel strong when you pull start? if you tried to adjust the throttle and still no avail, it probably is the engine, the piston rings go bad.

Snowblower won't start


When was the last time it ran? If this is the first run of the season then my guess is that last years 10% Ethanol Gas gummed up the carburetor. Need to take the Bowl off the carburetor and clean the Jet. Do not touch any adjustment screws just clean the bowl and the Jet, make sure the float is moving and put it back together. Then write your congressman and tell him to get rid of 10% ethanol gas. It does nothing to help the environment it only kills carburetors on all engines

Swisher 27" snowblower front impellers turn free


Hi Craig,

Most snowblowers incorporate "shear pins" between the motor and auger. A shear pin looks similar to a nut and bolt or pin that couples the drive to the auger - but it designed to break or shear off to prevent damage to the auger or motor in the event of a jam or overload. They look like these:

12_21_2012_2_20_37_am.jpg

12_21_2012_2_20_57_am.jpg

Only the shear pin recommended for your particular brand and model snowblower should be used. Under no circumstances should a regular bolt or other steel pin be used instead of a shear pin. Check your manual or consult with Swisher to determine the correct shear pin for your snow blower.

I hope this helps & good luck!

357cc is equal to what in horsepower MTD


From my website: movingsnow.com. Five years ago the power output of every snowblower sold here in the United States was measured in hp or horsepower. It was a nice simple measurement that everyone was used to.

Three years ago they changed the rules and started selling snowthrowers with the power measured in gross torque. Of course no one understood what this meant and even though companies like Briggs & Stratton tried to explain it, it still didn't make much sense.

Well they changed the rules on us again.

So we just start to get used to measuring an engine's output in torque and now for the 2009/2010 season a lot of the snow blower manufacturers are dropping the torque measurement and only giving us engine size in cc's.

I spent a great deal of time researching this and I'm not going to spend time trying to explain why the engine manufactures have changed their terminology. Instead I'm just going to show you a formula you can use to figure it out yourself.

Here's the formula I used from the Briggs & Stratton website (rpm x torque / 5,252) The engine manufacturer's used 3600 rpm most of the time to rate the engine's horsepower so I will use that number in the formula. I also used the torque ratings from the Briggs & Stratton website for their motors to keep this chart simple. Other manufactures (like Powermore) may have different torque ratings for their motors. If you are trying to get exact hp measurements you should research the torque ratings for the specific brand.

For 2009/2010 MTD has dropped all torque ratings on snow throwers. The engines are only labeled in cc's.

Here is a simple chart of approximate cc to torque to horsepower conversions. It's not exact, but it will give you a better idea of how big the new engines are. I used 3600 rpm in the formula for this comparison. Assume that your new snowblower motoe runs at less rpm.

123 cc = 4 hp

179 cc = 5 hp

208 cc = 8 to 9 Gross Torque = 5.5 to 6 hp

277 cc = 11 to 11.5 Gross Torque = 7 to 8 hp

305 cc = 13.5 to 14.5 Gross Torque = 9 to 10 hp

342 cc = 15.5 to 16.5 Gross Torque = 11 to 12 hp

357 cc = 12-14?

420 cc = 14-15?

To me cc's is not a good comparison from one motor to another. It is also not a good comparison from one manufacture to another. For example, a 190cc Briggs & Stratton side valve motor will not have the same power as a Honda 190cc overhead valve motor. cc'c doesn't give you a good measurement of what the engine is capable of. True, an overhead valve motor from a specific manufacture should have more power with more cc's but there are a lot of other factors that go into determining how much power is available for you to use. The true power of a motor is determined by engine type, (overhead valve/side valve) carburetor (naturally aspirated/fuel injected/turbo) rpm you use it at (2750/3100/3650) and many other factors. I hope this helps.

How do i change the auger belt on a honda hs 70 snowblower?


Remove the auger belt housing cover 4 bolts (10mm), if you are lucky, you can take the belt out, or just cut it. The slide the new belt between the auger and driving pulleys. there is a break pad under the auger pulley, so have someone engage the auger handle and put the new belt on the auger pulley. Or you can remove 10 12mm bolts and separate the auger and engine. Even though you have remove more bolts, it is easier.

Snowblower was running for 1 hr. i shut it off when i restarted it ran 1 minute and stoped could not get it started, it it sat for 6 hrs. and started but would not run at higher rpms. it seemed to sputter


Hi. And welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

From the symptoms you describe it sounds like the low oil sensor is shutting of the ignition.

i.e ran for 1 hour... hot oil... / low oil level ignition cut off. Sat for 6 hours all oil now in crankcase... started and higher rpm sputters....

Check the oil level. Other than that I think everything is fine.

If not please respond with a "make and model" of your snowblower. After that, there is more that we can do to resolve the problem.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Honda 1132 one year old commercial use now has high high compression on startup making it v hard to pull. runs fine once started


Sounds to me like the decompressor is not working.You need to find out what this engine uses for a decompressor,whether it be a valve adjustment thing or a linkage thing,the dealership service manager should be able to give you some guidance.

Honda snowblower engine hunting


Sounds like you are hitting the governor. Watch the arms at the carb when you move it to full throttle. The arm should hit a screw. Turn this screw clockwise, until the reving stops.
