Question about Garden
The primer bulb has a hose that goes to what I believe is a float bowl, primer bulb is good and hose is good. However when I prime, I hear air and that bowl does not have any gas in it. I tested the spark plug and it works, when I put gas in the spark plug, it fires. just cranks otherwise.
Carburettor dirty ,primer bulb has hole in it, or at worse the inlet from the carb.to the cylinder head cracked. hope this helps

Check the flywheel key. It is the most common problem I have found when a Tecumseh either wont fire or backfires. When you have the flywheel uncovered, take a nut the same thread as the flywheel. Remove the one from your machine and use the other one for the next operation. Take the new nut, place it on the sshaft in place of the one that was there. Lift the flywheel with one hand (to get a strain on it) and with the other hand, rap the nut with either a wood mallot or a regular hammer. You may have to rap it sharply. The flywheel will come loose and you can see the problem. Go to a small engine repair shop and get a new flywheel key. Install it and go about your cutting. Good luck...Lee

Clean ALL the very small holes in the brass bolt that holds the carb bowl on.Some are VERY small and easily clogged. With bowl off and the bowl float hanging free, does gas readily flow? It should, and it should of course stop when the float is raised (putting the needle valve on its seat). If this event is occuring, then the main jet must be badly clogged. If no gas even gets into the bow. (not enough details).. then there is a vacuum lock or something strange going on in the fuel tank (cap). The threads of the fuel cap on a mower allow it to vent, preventing vacuum lock of the fuel flow.Start at the tank and go back in. Please repost as this is a good one.

I share your frustration. We just had our first snow fall of the season and my Troy Bilt Squall 2100 would not start or do anything. The snow blower is well maintained and does not have 2 hours use. I use 0-30 synthetic oil and installed fresh gasoline. It is simply maddening to have plunked down close to $500.00 and have a useless snow blower. Trying to get through to Troy Bilt's help line is next to impossible.

threw jets if the carb was stored with old fuel the jets could be plugged up as well as the needle valve can be stuck
