Did this video help you?

Gerald Basford: Do you straighten crank shafts?I have a small shop and seem to be getting a lot of mowers with bent shafts. Is it a big liability?I'm a retired welder and know of a few ways to test for fractures or cracks with dye pen or mag particle. What are your thoughts.Thanks

christian løvdal: I always use Alkylate gasoline on my snowblower and always fill up the tank after every time use I it so no condense can cause problem, and I never have problem with the carburetor because there is no water or pulution in alkylate gasoline, and the alkylate can stay in the tank during summertime and prevent corrosion in the tank, beacause alkylate will not go bad for at least one year, the down side it is more expensive than ordenary gasoline

PHIL ST ROMAIN: Thanks for your assistance. My snowblower is about 14 years old and wasn't idling correctly. It was running up and down on idle, which I call looping. Watching your video, I was able to take the carburator lower bowl off, clean the jets with carb cleaner. I then turned the snowblower on it's front open auger area. The carb was facing up. I shot about 2 to 3 oz's of carb cleaner into the opening and left it there for 30 minutes. When I layed the snowblower back on it's skids, the crystal clear cleaner came out gunky yellow!! I put everthing back together, and voia! Perfect idle with no looping. Thanks

Terry Gulliford: My 37 year old Troy Built Horse 8 hp and I thank you!!!!

Bill Hopkins: Can you show how to repair throttle shaft on a one piece flow jet carb.like on a 8hp B&S?

Kevin Richardson: Hi wander if you can help ive got a generator with same carb set up have had carb to bits and cleaned but now the generator revs to the max what have i done wrong many. Thanks

Jim M: Hey, do you have the model number for that b&s? I have the same one but the model number is illegible on the shroud. Many thanks! Jim

Matt Larocque: Thanks for the video! My Craftsman chipper now runs like a dream!

Nick Mercier: Hey there - I have a Toro 826 (Model 38150 from 1979) recently did some repair to the carb (which is the same as this one) and it's working better, but or some reason the throttle control is no longer working. Something got bent or popped in the area where the linkage touches down) I'm not sure if the pieces aren't lining up correctly or what might be happening. Would it be possible to get some images of what a FUNCTIONING throttle control looks like to help diagnose what the heck is wrong?

ristomatti kolsi: That is very old snow blower. from early 70's?

Darcy Roy: Great video, very clear and easy, thank you

copeland360: On the old 8hp Briggs , do you have any suggestions on a replacement pull start? I’m having trouble finding a replacement.

Jose Andaverde: My snowblower is idling kinda ruff could be my carb?

ristomatti kolsi: Sounds like old Volkswagen

Tombert Chen: Fantastic video! I'm sure to get mine working after this...as I bought it cheap, used...

DesertDigger1: Your how tos are wealth of knowledge Don, thanks for posting them. I don't work on other peoples stuff just my own and I'm stumped. I have a 1974 Sears Sears S/T 10 tractor with a Tecumsa engine and needs a carb kit. Sears has their name all over it and their like 3 digit numbers on it. Have any idea what the part number it may be for the kit and where I can get one? Thanks.

Peter Timpson: Great video! I have a newer 8hp motor on my Hurricane blower that won't start. It has spark. I changed the plug, fuel lines and it still won't start. The carb was cleaned(had rust buildup in the float bowl). Still won't start. When the hose is pulled off the side of the carb, gas flows out. Any suggestions??

flhkicker: Hi Donnie,If you buy a new carb as shown above ,what is the setting for the high speed jet and the idle jet ? After turning all the way in,what is the number of turns to back each out ? Thank you!

Robert Davis: "We're not building a Church here boys". That one was used by my Wing Commander. lol.

Dainius Juras: Very well done!
