SOURCE: 1996 bayou runs for short time ,keeps stalling out

Hello, I would start first, make sure ex pipe is open . Then I would check the pick up coil, ohms should be 390-590 on a 300 KLF. Do this test before u start the bike Then start the bike and when it quits running check the pick up coil ohms. If good move on to the coil, If good then I would say good chance CDI is bad I hope this helps

SOURCE: engine keeps flooding out

Recommend completely draining the fuel system. Tank, lines, and carb. Make sure everything is clean and dry. Clean or replace fuel filter. Always try to store it with a full tank of fuel. It is common to get condensation when the weather goes from warm to cold and back.

Tecumseh 20 hp tvt691 only runs on full choke


Sounds like your fuel jet is plugged. if you have a fuel cup on the bottom of your carb remove it and clean it out real good.The fuel jet should be the little screw tat holds the cup on Take it out and blow it outwith an air compressor or put a real fine wire through it if you do not have air pressure. You should be able to feel air if before you put it together you blow through it.
Might be a good plan to dump your old gas out and make sure your fuel tank is clean and put fresh gas into it.
A large percentage of when the engines have to be choked all the time the jet is plugged or partly plugged. Do not mess with the float when you take the bowel off or you could have other issues to get it put back together properly.

20 hp tecumseh, won't run unless choke all the way out and gas lever all the way up, also backfires. spark plugs good and seems to be getting plenty of fuel. Any ideas?


If the choke has to be on its not getting enough fuel into the engine. The carby and fuel lines etc have to be cleaned out. Regards Phil

Our HMSK 80-110 electric start snowblower starts up right away, but the idling is very rough. It runs very smoothly when it is engaged in snow throwing.


The Tecumseh snow motors are notorious for idling rough. Especially the last few years of production. Most service techs just say "live with it" But there are a couple of things you can do to help.
It is not a carb adjustment issue. It's usually a fuel, clean carb issue.
First, use a premium grade fuel without ethanol and a fuel stabilizer. This will give you the best fuel mix.
Second, Remove the carburetor shield and clean the inside and outside of the carb with carb cleaner. Even though you can't see the carb usually, they do get varnish build up and cleaning it will help some.
Third, Put the recommended amount of fuel system cleaner in the gas. I use Sea Foam brand. Over a tank full or two you will notice a difference in how the engine idles.
Fourth, Use a high quality spark plug and use a new one every year. Make sure the gap is correct.
Good Luck! Feel free to as any other questions you may have. Don't forget to rate this answer!
