Unscrew the nut on the bottom of the carburetor and remove the float bowl it must be emptied and cleaned , debree and water gets into the bowl and blocks of fuel flow reinstall the bowl and start, some carbs don't have a float bowl requiring you to remove the gas tank and carb which is a more involved cleaning.

How old is the fuel in the tank and also look into the tank for water from condensation. If the gas is older than 2 months drain the tank and the carb bowel.

Engine will not fire or try to start on my Troy-Bilt Super Tomahawk 2 in 1 Chipper/Shredder, 8 h.p., Tecumseh engine. Getting good spark; changed to new gas; no air blockages found.


If your getting spark no doubt its a fuel problem. Does the inside of the cylinder look wet when you removed the plug. The seals in carb go bad all the time. You need a rebuild kit most likely. Very cheap an easy to do. If its a bowl carb it should be done. Should solve your problem. Starting problems are no spark or no fuel. Carb leak an seal get weaker all the time. Gas the way its made today eats the seals away.

I have a Troy-Built Chipper/Vac Model 47279 (5HP) that has not been run in a while. I have drained the fuel and added new but it will not start. The old fuel did not have any fuel additive prior to storage...


i have the same Chipper, vac. Have you checked for spark? You may want to clean the fly wheel. I use emery cloth to clean the area at the magneto, If there is no spark, Also you may have to clean the carb. I have been looking for a manual for this model with no luck. Hope this helps!

There is a blockage in the outlet from the fuel tank, there is a filter in the tank and it is dirty. Try it anyway. Stephen.

Troy-Bilt Chipper Shredder won't start


It takes good gas, good spark, and good air for a gasoline engine to run well. The next thing I would do is put a new air filter in it.
