You need to remove the body cover first. The fasteners are all around the edge of the cover. Once that is free you remove the gas cap and lift off the ocver. The tank is only held on with a couple screws. A new tank can be sourced online for about 30 bucks. At bit pricey I know but it is a discontinued unit. Be safe and good luck!

I put a mixture of oil gas in my 621 R/621 toro snowblower?


Hi Jerome:
Shouldn't be too bad.
You could disconnect the fuel line at the carb and drain the tank.
Drain and flush the carb. Reconnect the fuel line and fill with fresh gas.
If it won't start, pull the spark plug and clean/dry it with a propane torch, or replace it.
Odds are it will be fine.
Cheers.

Gas leak at grommet on gas tank where gas lines enter and leave tank


Yes you should be able to replace the rubber tank seal that the fuel line goes through. Be sure to replace the fuel line(s) when you do.

Snowblower leaks gas on garage floor


Is it coming from the carb or tank? Either way replace the fuel lines, they crack an get pin holes in them an cause problems. If it comes from the carb get a rebuild kit an, very cheap, an replace the seals.

Toro snowblower wont start.I have a toro ccr powerlite that dosnt seem to be getting fuel from the fuel line into the carb. I took the fuel line off and fuel is getting to the carb so then i removed carb...


Reference the Toro snow blower. It may sound crazy but loosen the gas cap just a bit. I had the same issue with my snow blower and a friend gave me the solution. It works great now. Hope this works for you.

I have a toro snowblower. i cannot pull the pull cord. it feels like it is stuck.


Pull your spark plug out and see if the cord will pull out, if it does than that means your cylinder is full of gas which is a result of ethanol in the gas causing the needle valve to leak causing fuel to siphon from tank to cylinder, pull your carb off and put a carb kit in and you will be blowing snow in no time,if this isnt the problem then enjine may be seized up and its time to replace blower. Good Luck!

Just cleaned out my father's garage and came up with a Toro 524 snowblower this unit has not been running for over 6 years what should i do to get it up and running? can't find an owner manual online...


You need to clean the carb, make sure fuel lines are not cracked and brittle (replace if necessary) , clean fuel tank thoroughly, especially if there was still fuel in tank. Check for spark, mix a new batch of fuel (if mix is required) and start that mother it will probably run as good as new. Good Luck...

Toro 521 snowblower..nn replace gas line to carb, it runs inside the engine cover..removed all bolts but the back cover doesnt seem williing to be removed


Or, you can try the easy approach. Take a 1/4" bolt about 2" long and cutoff the head. Force the bolt into the old fuel line on the fuel tank side (after removing fuel tank), push other end into new fuel line, tape the lines together well with electrical tape. Gently pull from one side and push from the other until new section of line comes through. Just did this and it too all of 5 minutes.
