Toro 824 model - won't start - fuel line blocked between shut off valve and priming button. Is there an inline fuel filter?

Bought a used Toro 824 Snow blower. Had bad fuel in it, cleaned all fuel out via tank drain and the bowl. Added new fuel. Took out spark plug and put fuel in the cylinder directly. Replaced spark plug. Fired engine. Started, then cut out. Repeated the above steps, started, then cut out after about 10 seconds. Will no longer stay on, thinking I pulled some debris into the fuel line and blocked it. Isolated that there is a blockage in the fuel line BEFORE the primer and AFTER the fuel shut off valve (but primer and shut off value are not blocked). Going to be taking it apart anticipating that the blockage in simply in the fuel line, but wondering if there is anything else inline before the primer, such as a fuel filter, that might be clogged? Thanks.

SOURCE: toro recycler will run until primed gas is consumed.

The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.

Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.

SOURCE: Toro TimeCutter z4200 will not start

Toro Timecutter Z4200 mounts gas tank under seat and below carburetor. After first started, Z4200 will start OK again during mowing this period. But after some time passes (next mowing), gas evaporates from carburetor. Can run down battery using battery/starter getting gas backup through carburetor to start engine. This is poor Toro design, but good for service charges when replacing good components while trying to fix this problem.
Better solution is to add an outboard motor one-way squeeze bulb (approx. $15) between the fuel filter and the carburetor. Using the squeeze bulb for first start will prime the motor so that it will start without having to crank so long (which Toro says will burn up the starter). Toro saves $15/mower as well as selling new Z4200 starters.

SOURCE: PRIMER BULB WONT PRIME

I would recheck the carburetor to make sure you put the diaphragms next to the carburetor and not the gaskets.
Please if it is not priming you may have the fuel lines hooked up wrong. Also check the fuel cap to make sure the vent assembly is there. If the tank is not venting, the tank will get a vacuum in it not allowing fuel to flow.

Good Day.

I have a Toro Time Cutter Z480 and it starts up but as soon as you move forward it stalls and there is a lot of thick smoke.


What you have is an engine that has a carburetor problem that has probably diluted the oil to the point that the crankcase is over-filled. Drain the oil and filter, then replace oil. Sometime the carburetors on these unit will become porous or cracked inside and will allow gas to enter the fuel bowl while the engine is not running. Some signs of this is that the engine will drag or static lock when you try to crank it over.

I've gone to the point to even put an inline fuel shut-off valve in the fuel line so that the fuel can be shut off when the engine is not running to temporarily deal with this problem until a new carburetor can be located and installed.

When you had the fuel filter off, did gas flow freely from the hose? Sounds like maybe the tank has dirt in it blocking the fuel line. Other than that, maybe there is dirt in the carburetor bowl.

Toro TimeCutter z4200 will not start


First check to see if there is a fuel shutoff under the tank. On some models there is a fuel filter screen inside the tank where the fuel line connects to the tank. If niether of these work, R&R the carb.
