The carburetor may need to be serviced. You need to find a parts shop that handles Tecumseh parts. You will most likely need a rebuild kit for the carburetor. The carburetor part number is 640303. The rebuild kit is 632809. The Tecumseh engine company shut its' doors 3 years ago. Finding parts is becoming harder and harder. I've heard that someone has bought Tecumseh over the winter but it is unknown when the new parts will hit the market. Best of luck to you.

The contact point that grounds out the spark is not connecting. Take it apart back down to where you have access to the coil and check the mechanism and and the wire to ground out the spark.

Make sure that the doggone brass bolt that holds the carb bowl on was cleaned as well. It is the main jet and has tiny holes that get clogged from evaporated fuel/varnish and debris (if no inline fuel filter is used). It has holes on the bottom and the smooth part of the sides...it needs to be clean and shiny! If all is well and the motor is an OHV, then maybe the valves need adjusting.

After priming starts, runs and stops


If you over fill the oil your mower will not start until you remove excess oil. This should be checked first, This is a much easier fix.

I have toro 6.5 super/recycler that stalls out after about 5-10 minutes after it starts up then it will not start for about 30 mins. i've changed the spark plug and cleaned the filter


Dont know if this is the same problem but it may help. I've recently bought a used Toro 6.5 recycler and have cut the lawn 3 times with it. This third time it began to stall out on me. If I hit the primer button several times it would start up but then die again. I thought I'd have to pull the carb and clean it, ut after looking at a few problem listings online I realized it was probably just some trash in the needle valve. I managed to get it running again by first pushing the primer pump 3-5 times, then pulling the cord to crank it, then while holding the contact bar in place with one hand to keep it running I reached down and pumped the prime button a few times before it cut out again- after one or two tries it apparently flushed the trash out and it ran fine again. Had the same problem later and fixed it the exact same way, then went on to finish the yard.

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.

Toro recycler will start until primed gas is consumed.


I had similar problem and cleaned the spark plug and that seemed to have worked, but I think that may be a temporary fix because the engine still seems to be running unevenly. I feel that it must be a larger problem with the carb. If anyone can help this novice to adjust the carb or clean both carb and filter, or offer other solutions I would appreciate your assistance.
