I had exactly the same problem, I tried to clean the carb several times without any luck. I gave up on the carb as it was an EPA style without adjustable mixture needles. Bought a new carb for it, installed it and the engine fired up right away. Took me 10min to let it warm up and dial the mixture, it has been fine ever since.

I recommend to buy the replecement carb old-new stock mfg pn: 632334A Tecumseh Carburetor with mixture needles

This place helped me out with one.

Can you replace the whole spark plug wire on the coil on 8hp Tecumseh without changing the coil


Not unless you cut the wire and splice a new piece on, which I would not recommend. A new coil should cost you less than $20 and is not hard to replace. See the attached YouTube video on how to do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6bQrNr4lv0

Need to find correct spark plug for Troy-Bilt #42027 Snow Thrower.


Several engines were available, you need to look for the number on your current plug - easiest method.

otherwise, you will need to give the motor manufacturer and nameplate info (Tecumseh SnowKing 8HP?)

Maybe the rope pull start is stuck? Remove shroud and see if you can rotate the flywheel by hand. If it won't move then the crankshaft may be stuck on a broken part, such as the governor gear or camshaft that has broken off.

I have one of these beasts on an old go kart, governor is broken or something, rebuilt it a couple years ago, I have picked some bolts and such off it, have a brand new carb pretty much, what exactly do you need? It was a strong running engine, but at this point it's too dangerous for the kids and I'm done dealing with it.

First, try a new plug, then if still a problem ....

Assuming it's not pre-1985, then the ignition is solid state. To test - disconnect the 'kill' wire (usually black, but could be green or even red) coming from behind the cowling. Check for a spark. If OK, your problem is in the wiring. If still no spark, replace the coil.

If your engine IS ancient enough to have points, post back here and I'll advise.
