I have a Troy-Built Model #31AS6GN3711 snow thrower. I am trying to get the shroud that covers the carburetor off the machine. The knob for the choke is preventing the removal of the shroud. How do you take the knob off the choke?

I will suggest you pull out and twist the knob which locks the knob. With this, the knob should for the choke should be free for you to access the .carburetor.

Take care.

Hello I have a 8 horsepower craftsman show thrower, the engine is stuttering I think it's because it is running on CHOKE. the lever is loose and I have no idea how to replace or tighten it. Help! snow is...

Hi, You will have remove the carburetor shroud and then check the linkages from the choke lever to the choke.
Unfortunately Craftsman does not give detailed parts listings for most of the motors on snowblowers on either their manual site, or their parts site, but I suggest you check anyway. You need the model number of your snow blower. Iit will look like 123.123456.
Even if you can't find a parts breakdown I suggest taking the shroud off if you are at all familiar with working on your mower. The shroud on a snowblower just covers the carb like the air cleaner on your mower. If you can use a screwdriver and hand tools, you can do it. Take pictures with your cell phone or draw diagrams showing each piece as you take it off.
