  1. Hi Donyboy thank you so much for your altruism and your great generosity. You impress me a lot. I have a chronic problem with a Tecumseh Snowblower Carburetor the Throttle Shaft Lever do'nt stay up. I tried many temporay tips (wire, external sring). How to fix that lever in order that it will stay up when needed instead of shutting the motor… Thank you

  2. can you help- the butterfly throttle shaft remains open even with the throttle lever is down therefore the engine wont start. all the springs are intact if I take off the linkage from the carburator to the govenor arm the butterfly will spring back closed everything is well lubricated no seizing anywhere it appears the spring on the throttle shaft no strong enough to close the butterfly?

  3. Love your channel. Have learned a lot. Thank you. Could you let me know what you use to heat your garage. And roughly what the cost per month.
    Thanks again

  4. Nice video but I was cringing when the brass shaft was put into the vice and then hammered on. Would have just used the peen of the hammer whith shaft protected with a rag. Still smarter than me though.

  5. hi   that works but I find that cleaning it with sand paper and use low heat and a little solder works better   its brass and metal       I did this several times stays good ,

  6. You are good. I have a question. I have a ST724 Ariens snowblower with a throttle switch that will not shut off the engine.
    I see a wire that looks like it should ground to the throttle switch somewhere but I am not sure where…?
    Any ideas or pics of where it needs to hook up?
    Thanks

  7. I love these videos Don. To repair something when you can't easily or quickly get the part. I like to solder those shafts in place. Wire brush it a dot of flux, a quick heat with a torch and some solder and its good to go.

  8. Thanks for the video.

    How about just installing a $17 Chinese carburetor? Is the original Tecumseh throttle shaft even available as a replacement part?

  9. Don your videos are fantastic really helpful!
    I have a Rear Engine Snapper that I am working on
    I would like to ask you a question about wiring
    I could not find an email address for you could you provide an email address so
    I could send you a question

  10. Thank you for the videos. I have a craftsman model 536.918300 snow thrower. I wanted to check the linkage configuration for the carburetor. The videos are for newer models than this one. Could you direct me?

  11. Donyboy your videos are excellent and teach so much. I've been watching all your carb videos because I have snow on the ground and my old Tecumseh craftsman is just dying down as soon as I put a load on it, I had it running perfect in the summer when I got it but now as soon as it hit the snow it bogs out. I'm gonna check governor adjustment and butterfly tomorrow in the light. Thanks for all these videos, they help so much!

  12. Hi, great videos! The spring in my throttle wont bounce back when I raise the throttle up and pull back. Do you have a video that shows how to replace the spring in the throttle? Thanks

  13. I have the same carb, throttle lever, and governor set-up as in this video.  my question involves the carb return spring at the 6:55 mark … on my snowblower this spring is orientated the oppsite direction as you show. that is, the bottom spring arm rests behind the shoulder… was this installed upside-down ??  Should I switch the spring around (so the bottom spring arm rests in front of the shoulder directly next to the idle screw as shown in you video)??  I recently purchased this used snowblower and making repairs as needed using your videos .. very informative!! thanks in advance

  14. Thank you, i have been able to repair many snow blowers using your stratagies.
    Question; i have 5 hp Tecumseh (snapper) with a broken throttle lever, do you have a video showing how to replace a the throttle mechanism?

  15. I have a tecumseh HSK 850 on a toro ccr 2400e snowthrower .The manual shows fixed speed governor linkage hookups.The diagram shows both a solid governor link part#490319 and a spring part#490318 in the same holes between the governor lever and the throttle shaft. Is this correct?The spring would never stretch. The manual I found the diagram in was a 1996 tecumseh 2 cycle. Can you help me understand this?

  16. I have the same snow blower. It won't stay running. You have any idea to help. I did clean carb. Problem still the same. I plan to get new carb. I don;t know it work or not.

  17. Where are you getting parts for your carb ? My John Deere local dealer said they are difficult to find even though they are listed as an Ariens dealer/parts supplier. 

  18. I have a Toro with Tecumseh 8 I put in a new carb new and  throttle switch, I was having the same problem you are describing . I took the shaft out of the new carb nothing wrong with it, All the linkage appears good and the shaft moves when tested. I still have no throttle difference when I move the throttle handle.  Do you think it is a governor problem or something else I am lost.
    Thanks
    mitch

  19. pay close attention to all of his videos….
    he really knows what he's talking about and clearly shows you how to do it !
    he easily saved me $200 on one repair

  20. you sure no what your doing. Thank you for making this video. I have a snow king 8.5H engine briggsStratton. I have an issue with the throttle not going or staying high enough. My engines sputters and backfires and at times seems to want to die. when I engage the blades it stops sputtering. (I have changed the oil, the spark, and cleaned out the carb) still sputtering). I have brand new gas also. Any thoughts or suggestions?

  21. Hi Dony – I just wanted to thank you for this video. I was working on a JD trs32 snowblower with the identical carb and the same loose throttle plate. I remembered seeing this video when you first put it up and it helped me fix the machine.

  22. I have a HM80-155282J ENGINE. I CHANGE THE CARBURATOR AND THE GASOLINE LINE. THE ENGINE START. I HAVE NO POWER . I THING THE TROTTLE PRING IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY. HERE ARE SOME PICTURES

  23. Great vids! Just wondering how I can remedy a primer bulb stuck on the in position. (bulb has indentation and won't come back out) Sears craftsman, I think 1980. Pretty much the same set up as a Tecumseh.
