Auger wont move after hearing the impellar stiking it.(Snowblower
I have a 824 Toro snowblower. I was out tuning the carb after a float repair and replacement. When running the auger I could hear what I thought was the impellar stiking the auger with every revolution. Sure enough it was. How do I move it the impeller back or is it a problem with the auger. There are two screws that were loose around the pipe that goes into the auger. Now the auger wont move at all, it is not caught on the impellar? Any ideas? 30cm coming tomorrow!!

Snowblowers tend to get a lot of wet slushy use and if the are put away wet they can easily rust. Try to make sure all the mucky stuff is cleaned off (air hose works great) and spraying penetrating oil or WD-40 generously over all the moving bits except belts never hurts.
Put a straight piece of metal or wood on the top pulley and slide it down. Both pulleys have to line up if you slide it down and it hits the bottom pulley you will have to replace or shim the pulley (top or bottom) with washers so they are perfectly lined up
whithout the engine running the gov should be trying to full throtle. when started this should tell the carb to supply or restrict fuel/air to compensate for load or the lack of. but to answer your question....yes the gov should be wide open, unrunning.
tecumseh snow engines are natorious for not starting,first thing you need to do is take the old gas from the tank.gas only stays good for about 30 days.YEP .....that's all.there should be two screws that holds the cover over the carb.take the bowl off and there should be water and dirt in the bowl.clean that out,be careful not to drop the needle off the float.if you do it take a little patence to put it back on.now the nut you took off the bowl has three holes in the side of it.clean all the holes,one is really small and it's up twards the theads..replace the bowl gasket and reassemble the carb.now you should have fuel to the cylinder and it should start.if not let me know
One of two things will cause this. Either your piston rings have fried and your piston is stuck. The bearing on the flywheel is bad. Or actually one of thing, the crank shaft has broken. You willl need to take the motor apart all the way and see what is going on. If you take the flywheel off try to turn it by hand and see if you can turn it that wy. You also can try easier to check for first symptom is to make sure you are not in vapor lock. Remove the spark plug, turn unit upside down and see if you can get the motor to turn, if you can then replace the spark plug and it will start up. You can getvapor lock by running it low on fuel or the wrong fuel or running it to rich
