Did this video help 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!

Daniel Robert: Oh yes Lawn-Boy made Snow blowers. The most interesting ones had a 2 cycle motor with a winterized version of their Duraforce engine called the R-tec.

john r.: thank you so much! I have searched all over the Internet for that simple or what at least I thought should be a simple answer and I simply could not find it. Thank you I'm learning so much from watching your videos it's amazing.

john r.: Your video helped me get my 8 hp running. What number spark plug should I use?

Icrazyfish: Nice video, try speeding up the footage when u are unscrewing, etc

Larry Lafferty: wow! awesome.

Just Fitz: Thank you for posting this..... !!!!

Kmondak: Very well done. Good voice, clearly spoken, good camera control. Enjoy your videos.

One problem I have run across a couple times is a flywheel that WILL NOT come off and has no pulling holes. Three point pulling linkage would not do it either. I ended up heating the hub red hot and it came off in loud groans and pops. The key was just fine. I have broken a flywheel in the past. Lots of videos of them coming right off with a tap. Any suggestions for the future. Thought about building some custom rear multiple point wedge.

Paul Murphy: great help thank you

Chamblizi The All Mighty!: what's that screw on the bottom please explain lean adjustment vs rich I'm experiencing richness

s c: can I call you snowboy73..:)

Marvin Conrads Back Yard bushcrafting: i have an 8 horse Briggs with the points on the inside the flywheel. how do i change that out.
