Ines Ortiz: Great video, so detailed and clear.
My 11 years old Toro lawnmower would start but wouldn't stay on. I
followed this video step by step and now my mower works like new. Thank
you for sharing this video.
James pier: Thanks I found it and its just as incredibly clear and excellently
narrated. You have a natural ability to teach. Maybe you should teach on
the side. You not only have a super clear camera close ups( some others
have a close up you can't even see what it is) that you can even see the
minute hole in the jet bolt on the bowl and the emulsion tube o rings. But
you also anticipate the questions or what is needed or could go wrong and
speak to its solution. Sometimes as you watch these procedures it begs
certain questions which are not answered. But you seem to realize this.
I have a Toro 6.5 hp model 20016-220602447 with a tecumseh LEV120-361560B
engine its a self propelled front drive walk behind mulcher. Is there a
need to do anything to the transmission to maintain? If so do you have a
video on this? How about changing the belt?
Also is there any tip on how to remove the emulsion tube? I tried to push
down with a blade screwdriver as you suggest but it will not go down. It
has been there for many years. One video suggest a little WD40 to take it
out? I purchased a US B crochet needle (2.25mm) and will try to use this to
extract from the other side of the tube.
Keep up the good work remember you are our CHAMPION! O by the way even
though I have not completed to rebuild my existing carburetor as per your
instructions I purchased a cheap replacement ($18) and following your
instructions exchanged them and the mower is running like new!!!! I have
it difficult to buy the different gaskets any suggestion where would be a
good place? Is there a gasket for the muffler?
James pier: Dony,
I tried to reply to your E-mail and it came back. Do you have a business
E-mail or do I need to respond via comments?
JohnHole2: These Tecumseh LEV series engines are among the poorest quality small
engines ever made. Most still operational will have a blue cloud of smoke
coming out the exhaust when they're running. Piston & cylinder bore wear
in these engines is extreme, due to poor oiling design.
Jake Lehner: How do you dispose of bad gas? Recommendations I've heard is mix it with a
full tank in your car (works but makes me nervous), or dump it on the
ground ... which I naturally have issues with (no pun intended).
Granny D: This video rocks! Saved me some $$$! Thanks!!
ron buth: good job , u beast
Jeremy Calnan: Hey Donyboy ... need your help .. I have watched this a couple of times and
have one question. when you removed the muffler there were 2 3/8 bolts
mounting the Carb on the motor. when you removed them and said to pull it
off .. I didn't see you mention the gasket that is there and I am needing
to replace mine .. so is that considered the Intake gasket? I see there are
2 gaskets that look very similar in shape and size so .. could you let me
know which one that is .. when taking mine apart the gasket split into 2
pieces.. 1/2 left on the motor and 1/2 on the tube. thanks in advance ...
love your videos ..
rcforlife553: hey donyboy, i was just wondering , what is the part number for a tecumseh
carburetor jet on a 6.5hp scotts lawn mower thanks:) oh and also what is
the correct tap size for that hole, my jet broke off inside of it
Roger Benson: Finally, a good video. Well shot and step by step instructions. Can you
show how to repair a gas leaking out of the oil filter. Please show how to
remove and fix.
Mighty Lawns: awesome vid!
Hillbilly Critic: YO
mike larson: Great video, but a gas filter is a must. I know the jets were made smaller
to accomodate Clean Air rules a few years back, making these ports plug up
real easy.They cost around $2.00 and will get rid of pretty much any carb
problems. You just cut the hosing coming out of the gas tank and put in a
filter, the hosing plugs into each end of the filter. Small fuel filters
are available at most hardware stores. Your video is a great tool in
cleaning those tiny ports, it's hard to even find anything small enough to
get into those jet holes.
ROBERT CARLTON: I can't believe it--I followed the utube and my mower--15 yrs old--runs
James pier: Dony,
I have replied to you via you tube and have not received an answer. Are you
receiving my comments?
donald ducky: Well, I never noticed you having your own office chair to work with. Since
this was 2010, are you using a hoveround now. LOL. And I know with your
superior experience, you've graduated to neet little screw guns and impact
wrenches. Pretty soon you'll just be pointing fingers and telling the
crew(s) what to do.
All joking aside, you do good work.
emile buisson: boy, toro has got more nerve than enough calling that son of a bitch a
GTS, more like GNTS, What a pile of crap, they should make one more of
those MFs and quit, power level after a year or two is cut down to about
!/3 hp, couldn't pull a sick whore off a piss pot
Hillbilly Critic: COOL
Rob Thoreson: I noticed that once you had the float removed, that there is a brass plug
underneath. I have a LEV120 model it has 2 brass plugs. My Tecumseh Tech
manual says to leave these alone, but the one in your video has one
missing. Is this a different carb design or how does it alter how the carb
estorvitoo: Excellent video. Thank you!!!
OllyGucci: Nice vid dony! I have the same mower but different problem. The mower was
stuck. The string wouldn't pull. The oil looked low so I added some oil.
Still no luck. I raised the mower horizontally and tried to rotate the
blade either direction. It moved with some difficulty and made sounds of
liquid being pushed around inside and some amount of oil came out of the
air filter - maybe I added too much oil. Now it turns most of the cycle
freely when I rotate it, but gets difficult to rotate at a certain location
- it pushes back like a spring and makes sounds of liquid motion. After I
force-rotate past that point, it rotates freely again. When I try to pull
the string, it pulls freely until the engine gets to that point, then gets
stuck, making it impossible to pull any further. It also yanks the string
out my hands at times - it used to do that for a while before the last
failure. Any suggestions what might be wrong?
James pier: Can you tell me what camera you use for your videos? Is it self focusing or
do you have a manual focusing available? How close can you focus? By the
way on my prior comment I meant I found your video for changing the primer
bulb on a Toro lawnmower. Thanks
jspinks2388: Damn Tecumseh's man....they run good for awhile when everything is
perfectly right...but some of their damn carbs like this one...bullcrap got
a yardman and those o-rings on the emulsion tube just don't last..and all
the surging and crap starts...and yeah they need a better in-line filter
there carbs/jets get plugged up so easy... that said Id take a lot
Tecumseh's over some damn Briggs never liked their carbs either as well as
some stupid governors that will break and lock them up...
Chris G: Great video. The mower used in your vid was a different model Toro but the
step by step instruction made my tune up simple. Thanks for your help.
Derek G: This was very helpful. Thanks for posting it.
Will Bryle: Great Video. The problem I have with this mower is rough running or not at
all. I took the air filter off and covered the opening with my finger
which made the engine to run smoother and rev higher. In order to use the
mower, I partially covered the intake with duct tape. Would these steps
cure the problem?
Dan Freeman: Thanks for the video, so well done! I'm gonna go tackle my mower now!
Russ Young: I need help on the same mower to fix the pull start cord it snapped.
Have you got any video of that
F Loock: Wow Thanks. I bought one at a garage sale last year for $20, looked like
new. The owner had put mixed gas in it. I changed the gas cleaned the plug
and run all summer then it quit. I took it apart today and "thought" I had
cleaned the carburetor. THEN I watched your video. It was those little jets
in the bolt that hold the bowl on that I had missed. Very good video..
ron buth: greate
Tony Quartano: Thanks for this video!
Freddie Cruz: Sweet! Great Video!
Glen Stockley: Born teacher! Idiot proof - thank you
Dean Lee: Thanks A lot.
Megan Bares: How do you adjust the idle on this model? It seems to rev extremely high.
Robert Monk: Outstanding, perfectly clear, thank you so much.
vaughn nickel: Excellent presentation sir. The shop my son kept taking his mower to didn't
see that the float was half filled with gasoline. I ended up with the
mower, he went with a lawn service.
Gib Whitt: I want to thank you for the excellent step by step video. The part about
cleaning the fixed jet gave me the clue I needed. Indeed it was the fixed
jet that was dirty. Your clarity and completeness of instruction is a cut
above. Thanks again
HeddRedd: Thank you very much for posting this. Excellent job, and my project for
tomorrow! :) Is there anywhere I could get a bowl and O-ring separately?
Both are worn on my mower.
bentbike: Thanks a bunch for doing this, it saved me a hundred dollars and being
without the mower for a week. Cheers.
tnt5182: I have done all the above and it still won't start. Its starts with carb
cleaner theb quits. Any solutions?
TheDaveFrank: so do you thnk it was just bad gas? the carb as you described looked clean
as did the air filter. You did mention that the spark plug looked bad
though..was that the issue? Great video that a non mechanical dude like
myself could learn from! Thanks
David lands: Well explain video. Great job!
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?
Joseph Gazzana: Great Video, I did this to my Mower wich is exactly the Same. It's been
back to brand new Ty so much for this video great teaching.
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
Pikachu: 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?
