Question about Heavy Machinery
Either or do one of two things if the motor runs pretty well Start the engine and run it full throttle. Once there if it has a high speed jet turn the screw in to start with until the engine stumbles a bit and then turn it back about a half turn. When you turn it in you should here the engine peak out. .If it is blowing black smoke out the exhaust it means the high speed screw is to far out so turn it in until it smooths out.If the engine smooths out then you have cured the problem. Good luck.

I have the both the manual and parts catalog for Troy-Built 8hp Tomahawk, can send them to you for the cost of coping and postage if you haven't found them yet.

I really hate to be the "bearer of bad tidings" but Troy Bilt, as a company, in no longer in business, MTD bought out the name and design rights for a lot of their tools but they are not manufacturing or stocking any parts for the older GardenWay/ Troy-Bilt machinees. My best suggestion would be tostart looking for a good used one or one with a blown engine, broken frame or whatever, buy it and canibalize it for spare parts
