Start by closing jets (clockwise). Then turn jets 1 full turn counterclockwise. this should get engine started. Then adjust jets left or right to fine tune,until engine starts running smoothly.

Just installed a new carburetor on a Tecumseh Snow King 8 hp engine. Gas is getting to the carburetor but no gas is filling the bowl and engine won't start


Sounds like the carb needle valve is stuck closed. Try loosening the bolts holding the carb to the engine, then tapping the carb lightly with a hammer. If gas then flows to the carb, re-tighten the carb bolts evenly and not too tightly.

Tecumseh engine snowblower, will only run if I keep pushing the primer bulb, Why?


Take off the screw that holds the carburetor bowl on and clean the holes with a needle and blow air through them. These holes feed gas from thr bowl into the carb and may be clogged.

Lawn mower starts then stalls


if you have a Tecumseh engine the main jet is plugged and you are starting on primer fuel. The jet is located in the bowl nut of the carb. Blast all holes with cleaner and air. You may need to find a small needle, ones used to hem clothes, and run that through to loosen stubborn particles and rinse out. let us all know if this works or you have a briggs motor.

Ariens snowblower ST724 leaks gas from the carbourater


The little metal peice with the wire ataches to the float at the hinge part of the float, if you use yahoo type in tecumseh carburetor diagram then click on Parts and Diagrams and the web address is partstree.com it will show you a breakdown of a carb and how it goes together. It may not bee your exact carb but they are all pretty much the same. It also sounds like you may need to rebuild your carb. If you get it back together and it still leaks, I suggest you take it to a small engine repair shop and have them rebuild it for you only cause you need a special tool for the seat and the float will have to be set.
