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

Tecumseh HM80-What length of pull rope do I use for replacement & where should the choke lever be set once the engine warms up, all the way to the right or on the first bump (detant?)?


the replacement pull rope for the motor will be the right length if you buy a genuine pull rope or a rope that is for your machine. The choke should be in the full open position when warm

I have a 22 hp bs crafstman riding mower and it would fire off starting fluid but would not on its own. I took carb off and cleaned out and got it running but only on choke. It's a v twin and on one side...


running rich will make it run colder.....I wouldn't run it anymore til you find theproblem, it will burn your valves. air leak in your intake/carb is more than likely your problem , check for cracks in the intake manifold , leaking gaskets

Our HMSK 80-110 electric start snowblower starts up right away, but the idling is very rough. It runs very smoothly when it is engaged in snow throwing.


The Tecumseh snow motors are notorious for idling rough. Especially the last few years of production. Most service techs just say "live with it" But there are a couple of things you can do to help.
It is not a carb adjustment issue. It's usually a fuel, clean carb issue.
First, use a premium grade fuel without ethanol and a fuel stabilizer. This will give you the best fuel mix.
Second, Remove the carburetor shield and clean the inside and outside of the carb with carb cleaner. Even though you can't see the carb usually, they do get varnish build up and cleaning it will help some.
Third, Put the recommended amount of fuel system cleaner in the gas. I use Sea Foam brand. Over a tank full or two you will notice a difference in how the engine idles.
Fourth, Use a high quality spark plug and use a new one every year. Make sure the gap is correct.
Good Luck! Feel free to as any other questions you may have. Don't forget to rate this answer!

How does choke work on 20 horse briggs the throttle only has turtlespeed and rabbit no place marked choke


Many have auto chokes, which are set to close and open essentially with spring pressure. You can verify this by looking into the intake, ahead of the throttle plates. Other designs use a priming bulb to accomplish the same function.

Bought a Poulan Wild Thing 18" gas chainsaw (P4018WT) secondhand from someone who only bought it to cut down 3 trees. It will not start. I know that it works, as the guy started it up and showed me how...


Don't prime it 6 times.

Prime it once and try starting. Keep trying with one prime.

If that doesn't work, let it sit for a bit. And then prime it two times and try starting again.

If that doesn't work, try priming 3 times.

Then try half-choke with one pull only, and then move choke to run for the second pull.

The saw might have an on-off button

Have a kent r/o system dont know how to hook it up is there any way someone can help


Make sure that all valves are in the open position.
Try to recharge the water storage tank. Here are the steps to follow.
* In General: When any type shut-off valve handle is positioned so that it is parallel or in line with the tubing that enters the valve, valve is OPEN. When handle is turned perpendicular to tubing that enters valve, valve is CLOSED.

Necessary Supplies:
1) Tire Gauge marked in 5psi increments (ie 5, 10, 15, 20psi, etc.)
2) Bicycle tire pump for standard type bike tire valve
To recharge RO system tank:

1) Close cold water feed valve (valve located at some point along the cold water line from street plumbing).*
2) Leaving RO tank valve on, turn tank on side & locate valve stem on bottom side.
3) Remove stem cap.
4) Drain all water out of tank through open RO faucet into sink. (Continue to leave RO faucet open throughout procedure)
5) If current tank pressure is insufficient to empty tank, apply tire pump to valve stem and pump 10 – 15 times. Exit flow will increase and then gradually decrease as pressure equalizes. Do not overcharge internal bladder of tank during this
procedure.
6) Repeat step #4 until tank is completely empty. (Tank is empty when additional pumping produces no more water)
7) At this point, adjust EMPTY tank to exactly 7psi. (Gauge reading midway between 5 & 10psi is sufficient)
8) Turn off RO faucet.
9) Replace cap on valve stem and reposition tank in upright position.
10) Open cold water feed valve.*
11) System water is useable immediately, however, tank will take 3-4 hrs to completely refill.
