John what you have is a 240 volt motor on that pump. It will not connect to a 120 volt cord. You'll have to get a different pump.

For problem #1 I would suspect a bad connection, it is a black wire I believe where it conencts to your CDI box, clean that connection on that wire and put it back together.

For problem #2 check your air filter, it probably needs replacing, not enough air and too much gas, a bad filter will end up fouling the plug if the motor cannot breathe.

SOURCE: Peugeot vivacity runs and starts ok open throttle fully starts to loose power

I wrote all of this below and figured I'd come back up here and clearify...I think it sounds most like a carb issue...but I'm leaving everything else just so you have other things to check.

Sounds like it might be running over rich. Check your plugs to make sure one isn't fouled completely out. If they look good, check and make sure they are firing (you can pull one at a time and touch the threads to the outside of the engine block to ground it and crank it should see it spark. If they are firing, check your filters (a blocked air filter can cause insufficient air flow and it would toss out until it could pull enough air in). Has the bike been sitting for a season or two with the same gas? If so, get rid of the gas in the's most likely turpentine now and would be better as a paint stripper then a combustion agent (yes...gas does spoil and depending on how well your tank is can happen faster than that). Could also have some water in your tank. So if its been sitting, honestly longer than a month, I'd get rid of that the gas in the tank. From there check the carbs. You could have a float valve sticking or a bent needle. Last but not least...if you've done any major work to the engine...check your points or have someone check them for you. You could be off by just a degree or two and it will muck up everything. Hope this helps in some way and best of luck!

Start snow blower runs for 3 min. and starts to over heat checked oil its ok then stats to shut down like its not geting oil

Why do you say its over heating .Runs for 3 minutes the oil is OK .
Do you understand how the choke works .
bacsicly you prime the mechine in cold condutions 3-4 pumps choke to max throttle at 3 /1/4 .
Start backing off the choke after 3-to4 mins .
The choke shuts the fresh flow down to the engine in cold condutions ware it needs more fuel then air to run.
When the engine starts to get hot it can't run with out fresh air to mix with the gas it won't run anymore because there is to much gas and not enough air
Its simple fool prof will work everytime if you adjust it right

When I turn off the snowblower with the throotle switch it will not stop have to pull the spark plug wire.

No other wire.
Instead of pulling the spark plug wire off, you could also take the end of that broken wire you mentioned and touch it to the metal that the switch is mounted on. It sounds like the wire you mention is supposed to be attached to the little curved wire. When you push the throttle down to the OFF position, it pushes the curved wire against the chassis and short-circuits the power going to the spark plug.
Re-connect the wire and also make sure the throttle is doing its job of having the curved wire make contact with the 'dashboard' or the engine housing or anywhere on the metal chassis. I just repaired my snow blower. Mine also had a broken wire that went to the back side of the panel where my choke knob is. The panel has a place to insert a plastic "key" that allowed the engine to run. In the case of my snow blower, the curly wire was normally in contact with the back side of the panel and pushing the key in bent the curved wire out of the way as you push the plastic key in between the wire and the chassis.
I looked around and saw a rocker switch that had the words "OFF" and "ON" on the rocker and decided to replace the lost key with that. I had to take the switch apart and turn the rocker around because in this application, I knew the snow blower would shut off when the switch was making contact and would be able to run when the switch was not making contact. Works fine now.

What colour wires go to the coil on a 726 snowblower

OK the wire on a coil is to shut off motor when grounded, so if you don't hook it up it will not shut off when you try. That wire goes to throttle linkage so when you slow engine speed to minimum it shuts engine off. Most snow blowers that have the red safety key in shield have that same wire slit from the throttle so if that malfunctions you still have a safety shut down.

Snowblower c950 52361 throttle will not change out of idle

Sounds like snow blower has been sitting since last season. Remove carburetor shield and move throttle linkage at top of carburetor. They some times seize or tighten up from sitting.Spray with WD-40 or something to lubricate.

Snowblower motor overruns. turn key to off and still wont stop until gas runs out.

Do you mean it runs very very fast? I would check and see if the throttle plate has become detatched from the throttle shaft in the carb. If so you should try to recover a very small screw and throttle plate from the intake manifold.

Bike will just quit running, then will restart will a loud backfire. Seems to happen most when I'm really gettin' on it. Also happens intermitantly...just stalls. It always restarts easily.

This sounds like an electrical issue. If you ride down the road and shut the key off or kill switch with the throttle open and then turn the key back on or the kill switch you should be reproducing the same event as you've described. Okay that's all well and good, but how do you fix it? Check your wiring...very closely. This could be one of a number of potential areas, if you have a kill switch make sure it is in good condition and none of the connections are loose. Do the same for your key or master switch. If all these fail you would benefit from a wiring diagram and tracing the circuit to identify where the problem could be.
Hope this helps and please post your findings when the issue is solved. Thanks,
