Did this video help you?

Kreig Dernier: Hey donnie i have a jd 726 model w2121 with a mechanical primer very hard to start but starts ok when it's warm is the adjustments different for a mechanical primer?

INTERNA9: Great video, thanx

Regular Guy Mountain Biking: Hoping you can help me. Ariens ST824 that I found on the street. Just bought a new carb. Ran new lines with the new carb and it starts right up. Bad part is it's pouring gas from the bottom of the engine and I don't know why? Could you please offer me some advice? Thank you very much!

Roger Flerity: Great vid. Installed a new adjustable carb for $20 on a 9HP blower that has been humping and hunting off load for two seasons, adjusted as you directed. It fired up and runs like new again. The old non-adjustable carb is in the bin. Thanks!

Darrell Baxter: I have the same snow blower but when I adjust the bottom screw gas comes out. I have the screw with the spring, but is there a o ring or something missing. can you help thank you

Agario Peeps: Simply Amazing Video! As we say in Woodbury, AAAAhMazing.. Tanks!

Helladamnleet: Mine has a fixed jet but still has the other adjustment screw, so not really that helpful

Van Alstyne: Is there any kind of air filter? I got an old Toro 824 (adjustable carb) today missing the carb/lower muffler cover. No filter, the choke side of the carb is wide open with the choke rod supported by a bracket. There isn't enough room for one inside the cover, if I even had one. Thanks Donyboy, great videos.

Jennifer Tanner: So I am adjusting my carb which is the adjustable one in this video. I have sparks and such coming out of the exhaust at full throttle and am having difficulty keeping it run at full throttle. What should I adjust now?

SlumpBuster Tackle: thank you for the great videos. My MTD snowblower seems to run really well and strong until it gets under loade of throwing snow. Then it seems to bog down and not handle the load well. I have to back off the throttle and let the auger clear before I can continue moving forward, newer carb that potentially isn't adjusted for the load. I am going to tighten the impeller belt tension tonight but wondering if there is a carburetor or governor adjustment that will help with the bogging down under load.

Louie Moscatel: recently rebuilt my exact same Tecumseh carb. Works great under load for about an hour or so then wants to die. When it does, I'll start it right back up without issue then shortly after it struggles and wants to die again. Fresh gas is being used. Thanks for any suggestions.

Eric Schwerdt: Thank you so much for this, huge help!!

Matthew Dolezal: I've seen quite a few of your videos and am always very happy with your organized and thorough explanations. Your speak and enunciate clearly, which helps because I don't question whether I misheard a term I haven't yet learned. Thanks!

Jake Mercer: Thanks for sharing this. It gave me the information I needed to get my snowblower up and running.

Gerry K: Great video. Listen I have a problem setting up my 8.5hp craftsman. I have set everything to factory specs. Now after warming up the motor I can't get it to run without the choke. I followed your video to fine tune it so it does run better...But it still needs the choke @1/2 to run.
And every once in a while it backfires. Any suggestions?

dennis blouch: donnie i have a 1996 toro 724 was proly only used 10 times i replace the carb on it but i cant get it to keep running without the choke all the way on any ideas

rpavlik1: oldie but a goodie! Would have been good to have RPM guidelines for us anxious folks and/or us with a tach. fwiw, as far as I can tell, wide open (WOT) you won't go wrong with 3400-3600rpm.

Though the Tecumseh rpm specs microfiche still eludes me, at least with snowblowers, your manual probably says somewhere the auger or impeller speeds (say, 120 and 1200 RPM, impeller usually 10x auger), and the engine WOT rpm is typically a full multiple of those speeds (often 3x impeller speed, since the RPM is almost always in the 3000-3600 ballpark).

I don't remember how low snowblowers should idle offhand, but hopefully at least this max rpm info helps somebody! (Little electronic tachometers that have a wire for around the spark plug wire are pretty cheap online, some around $20US, and can be quite handy both for tuning to spec and in developing an "ear" for how things are running) I've certainly learned a lot from donyboy73 over the years, so I figured I should share what I know instead of just pointing out what info I would have liked in this old vid 😁

Mike Jimenez (M.J.): I Just Want to Thank You from Riverside California 92504. You've been so instrumental in my success. I enjoy how your very precise on what you have to say and your videos are very clear and you speak slowly I really wish the best in your career you've been very helpful to my business thank you MJ lawn mower repair.

Kevin Nelson: Great video! This helped me tremendously last winter when I needed to get me snowblower running. The engine ran great. This winter, though I'm having troubles with it. The engine dies when I idle it down and it runs rough and backfires on high throttle. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Rando S: donyboy73. My snow blower dies when going up hill unless I increase the throttle.I've been working on the carb and may have messed something up. Can you give mean idea where to start looking for solution? Thank you! Rando
