There is usually a small cir-clip or e-ring to hold back the rubber boot. Look carefully around the outer edge of the boot. There could be some dirt around the area where the clip is scrape around a little with a small flat blade screwdriver. Maybe sometimes they can even unscrew if it has a raised edge around the perimeter but not likely.

Tecumseh engine model tvt691-600811a---i need a diagram of the carburators numbers on carburators are 5172DOB


You may already know that Tecumseh ceased business about 2008. It seems Barrett Small Engine has some of the literature on Tecumseh engines & parts. Try this link: http://www.barrettsmallengine.com/tecumseh/parts.html

Hope this helps,

Can you run your lawn boy mowers without the primer button being used?


Yes you can. The only reason small engines have the primer button/bulb is to get gas to the carburator to make it easier to start it. If your mower starts OK without using the primer bulb you will not harm the mower.

When using the primer to prime engine fuel leaks out from the carburator bowl? No leakage when operating. Is the carb in need of a rebuild?


I have a gokart that will do the same thing. No Your carb doesn't need to be rebuilt its just where gas builds up and starts to overflow. It'll be fine as long as its not leaking when your operating it.

Carb will need to removed and thouroughly cleaned.
Also you can file or clean coil where the contacts rub on flywheel.
Change your spark plug as well.

Backfire Tecumseh Generator


To maybe convert your Flamethrower back to a generator, Make sure the fuel line is a good quality thick rubber material (like OEM )since it passes through the engine,HEAT is a issue, if it has been modified to steel, or it's thin rubber, it will overheat the fuel on its way to the carb and cause backfires after the engine warms up , ( vaporizing gas and pressure bypassing the jets flooding the engine) I use 1/4 inch Goodyear sold at Autozone , one of very few name brand quality parts you can get there. The other possible cause is carbon deposits built up on the leading edge of the valve not allowing the valve to close all the way, just clean the valve, it is caused by too lean or rich carb setting or clogged jets, if it is a newer style carb with a pink main jet then debris in this area will always cause backfire, check and make sure the old tiny O-ring on this jet is not still in the bottom of the shaft, people forget to pull them out all the time or give up trying to pull them out, I use a paper clip and bend the end 1/8 of a inch @ 90 degrees to fish hook it out of there, CLEAN THE SHAFT with carb cleaner and a Q-tip.... A Tecumseh engine will always backfire if the carb or airflow is not perfect and sealed tight !!!!!! it looks simple to rebuild the carb but you must take your time and look close, clean it very well, make sure the jet is SEATED properly and all tiny holes are clean, use guitar string not torch head cleaners as they will enlarge the holes and make your carb run rich.
