rockdeere: i have same mower its been idleing low. I tried adjusting but I think I
might of stretched my governor spring what can I do?
Lennox Rodney: Thank you so much. This video saved me btwn $150.00-200.00, on a repair at
a service station. This was my first time taking on an engine
maintenance/repair. Thanks again!
Hyung Lim: Thanks. Video saved me a trip to the repair shop.
James Funsch: I have a toro recycler about 1.5 yrs old has a 6.75hp engine with engine
code BBXSX it will start but stalls immediately. Changed plug and air
filter no difference. I pulled carb loose and there is fuel getting to and
into float bowl. see nothing to clean or adjust. So, I don't think I have
made a difference to put it back together. Any thoughts on where to go
here. Much of the other info I have read talks about jets or screw holes to
clean; nothing like that here I can see. Appreciate any hel
MileyCyrus192: HERE MY VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION. HOW THE HECK CAN DIRT GET INTO THE
CARBURETOR SCREW HOLES. the screw that hold the bowl. I have to clean mine
so many times now I get frustrated at it. Clean it once and it work a lot
but than the holes get clogged again.
Ulpa Patel: We cleaned the carburator. Filled the gas and gas goes into the filter.
What is the cause of that?
donyboy73: make sure the linkage is on correctly
Christopher Girone: Just used this video to clean my lawn mower. Other than it needing a new
blade, it runs perfectly fine! Thanks a lot to an excellent tutorial From
this novice to you, Sincerely, Thank you
Armyydude: Just wanted to say thank you so much for posting this tutorial on cleaning
the carb. I have the exact model and the damn thing wouldn't start for me
at all.Cleaned it all out and it now runs better than it did before.My
local small engine mechanic isn't going to be pleased,but I sure am.Thanks
TeamBlindMouse: HELP..could please show a closer clearer pic of how the needle attaches to
the float. I think I did it wrong cause after 3 pulls on the starter fuel
started pouring out of the air filter !
Audioquest56: In my experience, if you want to solve 99% of spark plug issues, change out
the Champion RJ19LM for a NGK BR2LM. The Tecumseh engine on my snowblower
was transformed from a non-starting, rough-running (yes, with a brand new
Champion plug) engine to a 1-pull, smooth-running engine by installing NGK.
Ryan Desko: Very help full video it did help me fix my aunts push mower
Tristan102100: 7:07i would have first blew on the fuel line. i had a tractor that
everything was clean but there was a glob of grease in the fuel line it
took me 2 days to figure that out!
Darryl George: just completed a tune up on my toro 6.5 and now i'm getting any fuel thru
the primer, any suggestion
TeamBlindMouse: ok. looks like I did it right ? any suggestions ?
David Okanagan: I just put a new magneto on the same engine, mounted on lawnboy. Its
running rough, and blowing oil out of the plastic cover on top of engine?
What do I have wrong with motor? I think that it was worked very hard with
little maint. Found it free at end of a driveway.
CJProSound: thanks, you just saved me $40 by helping me clean up the carb and get my
mower running again!!!
donyboy73: you're welcome
donyboy73: especialy does the engine get dirty if the flywheel key is broken
sofakingmeee: So I don't see anywhere where you address cleaning the fuel filter? Can you
perhaps show how to do this? ...thanks...great vid
Walter Null: I thought the GTS engines where made by Briggs?! I wish Toro would have
made these mowers with the 2 cycle R*Tek engines that came in the
snowblowers! I have a Lawn-Boy DuraForce but hate the staggered wheel setup!
donyboy73: SHAKE THE FLOAT to make sure it's empty
2cyclemix: ok. i checked the compression with both the electric starter and the rope
starter and in both cases i got 50 lbs/in. it has spark and fuel. i haven't
checked the rings or the valves. what do you think?
4rcowboy: A friend of mine gave me this same mower because it wouldnt stay running,
your video helped me to get it working and now I have a free mower. Thanks!
Louis Kapp: Great video. Saved me some money.
frogprincefilms: Or, you just buy a new lawn mower.
reellucky49: By the way Dony, the video was excellent. Next month (July) I am going to
budget you some cash cause you saved me some money. How do I do that? Thanks
JohnB0002: Excellent Video! Very detailed and easy to understand. I searched many
videos before coming to this one and, by far, this was the best.
Tony Espiritu: I did everthing on you video, cleaned carb, new spark plug( has spark) new
filter and oil. Now the only way I can start the mower is if I take the
filter off and choke the carb. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?
fgonzalez43: Nevermind, figured it out myself.
fgonzalez43: I replaced the carb on my Toro without problems. But you went through
reconnecting the linkage so fast I missed where the two, which resemble
unwound paperclips, go? That is, in which hole does the one attached to the
carb, and the other attached to the spring go?
donyboy73: look at my other Tecumseh carburetor repair videos
richard strauss: i have a toro 6.5hp gts.the governor screw got loose how do i reset it. the
mower is iddling to high, can u do a video? much appreciation
donyboy73: bad carb, did you try kit #631021b? make sure the carb is clean
donyboy73: the new ones have bad spark plugs, try a new rj19lmc
donyboy73: a screen in the tank
MileyCyrus192: The only way too keep it running forever and not have to worry about
anything at all is to clean the holes in the screw completely with that
wire and it will never bogged down at all or stutter. I have a 6.0 engine
that keep turning off after few second start is because the holes in the
screw was clogged with dirt and after I clean it the thing run forever.
John O: One of the best how-to videos I've seen on Youtube - and I've viewed
hundreds. Your narration was great without any fluff and editing was
fantastic to match what you were doing. Excellent job and this computer
nerd is ready to tackle cleaning up my mower! My girlfriend has one too, so
we'll be saving hundreds in repair bills! THANKS!
Darryl George: sorry; i'm not getting fuel to the primer
donyboy73: some have bad spark plugs number rj2yle that need to be replaced with an
donyboy73: there is a paypal link on my channel link, thanks in advance
Peter Piper: I'd advice NOT holding the plug when testing it. You'll get a nice shock
right through the cable! Also, a lot of people don't realize that a fouled
plug can just be cleaned and gapped. Just spray a bit of carb cleaner and
go at it with a wire brush. You only really need to replace a plug when it
is burned down. Great lawnmower and great video. Thanks!
Steven Meyer: Don: I followed the instructions in your video and Toro runs fine now, BUT
fuel leaks around the aluminum bowl. (I did replace the cork washer under
the bolt and also the rubber gasket around the float bowl.) Any ideas or
suggestions? Thanks, Steve email@example.com
donyboy73: part number 37855, there are two links on my channel to purchase parts
Kevin Delaney: This worked beautiful. Thanks so much. Saved me $160.00. Called a repair
place because I had a few questions and they told me that i needed to stay
off the internet. It needs to be fixed by a trained professional....What a
load of crap. Thanks again!!
donyboy73: good idea, thanks
Bigchris17able: Hey donyboy73 i working on the same lawn mower for a customer and it has
new carb kit and air filter and it starts and dies what is the cause of it
could it be bad gas and spark plug
reellucky49: Thank you so much sir. I viewed this video and followed your instructions.
That little tiny hole right below the threads was non existent on my 2006
model 20016 so i made one. Small though. The mower was not cranked since
2010 when the transmission quit working. I cleaned the plug and put in
fresh fuel and she cranked up on second pull and purrs. AMAZING. My next
job is to change the tranny (part no 106-3955). Can't find instructions for
this model. Will use schematic. Thanks again Dony
Greg s: Linkages look to be installed correctly, should i be able to see them move
has i pull down the throttle? as of right now they do not move when i do.
Any other thoughts?
