Hi, You have gum or old gas in the main jet on the carb, turn your fuel off, stand the snowblower on the front blower housing with handles in the air, remove main jet from the bottom of the carb and clean. Jim

If you want a 'drop-in' replacement, you will HAVE to source a carb that was fitted as original equipment. Following the demise of Tecumseh's engine division, supply is limited to 'old stock', but there is fair spares aqvailability at present. A newer 'primer start' carb will fit, but you will have to remove all the choke operating mechanism. Don't fit a carb from a larger or smaller engine - the mixture will be wrong, and the engine will never run properly.

I will try again here.
1 wire link from the top hole in the governor arm to the throttle on the carb. There should also be a wire link with a spring that goes from the Governor arm to the speed control handle.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. I understand you have a 10 HP Tecumseh engine. There are service manuals available on line for your engine but without your engine model number it is difficult to pass you the correct one: Here is the link for the service manuals:
Somewhere in the list is your manual.
This is my best guess without your engine model number:
^-Make sure you read about Adjustments in section 1 also.
Running wide open causes:
1. Broken throttle control plate spring
2. Governor spring problem
3. Internal Governor flyweight has departed the governor gear.
4. Throttle plate (butterfly) attached to the throttle shaft in the carb throat has come off the throttle shaft.
5. Broken / missing linkage
6. Someone loosened the governor shaft bolt at the base of the governor arm and allowed the governor to get out of adjstment.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
