rob kerz: I have the same mower.I cleaned the carb and rebuilt it, new spark plug,
new gas, new oil and new air filter. The engine still idles up and down.
What else is there to do? There is no blockage in the gas line. I did have
a white crud build up on the top of the carb bowl that i wire wheeled off
but I dont think it is sucking air. Any ideas?
regina criscione: thank you all for your comments.. we were at the point to just throw ours
away and go buy a new one, because after changing oil, gas, air filter and
spark plug it still didnt start.. but after cleaning the tiny hole in the
carb screw it started with one pull.... thank you again
rob kerz: I also am not sure i did a 100 percent job cleaning/ rebuilding the carb. I
watched you tube videos where you take the bowl off take the float off.
Spray the crap out of it with carb cleaner, give it a good wipe down and
then blow it out real good with a air hose. I did that and it looked really
clean, then i installed the new rubber and gakets. Do you think I did
something wrong when i rebuilt the carb? I made sure to get into all the
jets with fine wire like the videos said.
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.
RickOsheaYYJ: Great video, had my mower running 30 minutes after watching.
rob kerz: i may run some sea foam through it just in case. Also I may mess with the
idle screw and clean that and reinstall it. That is all i can think of.
Dennis Parks: 6.5 Tecumseh Engine, re set air gap, has spark, held brake in place while
trying to start, cleaned Carburetor, new fuel, won't Fire up?? Any ideas/?
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?
Vito V: Thank you. Great demonstration and a big help!
Granny D: This video rocks! Saved me some $$$! Thanks!!
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.
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?
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.
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.
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?
fatso ryan: I bought a troy bilt seven years ago..have never done a thing to it..sits
outside year round uncovered..it gets pounded with rain and buried in snow
and ice..in the spring when it thaws out it starts on the first pull and
cuts like the day I bought it..my neighbor who spends $75 a year at the
shop for tune ups shakes his head at me..I told him what he pays over 7
years I could but 2 troy bilts..when and if this one craps the bed I will
buy a new one...no regrets
Rhino Black: I changed the plug,air filter and clean out the Carburetor...It will run
for 15 mins and then cut off..
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
ron buth: good job , u beast
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
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...
ROBERT CARLTON: I can't believe it--I followed the utube and my mower--15 yrs old--runs
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?
James pier: Dony,
I have replied to you via you tube and have not received an answer. Are you
receiving my comments?
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).
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..
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.
estorvitoo: Excellent video. Thank you!!!
Derek G: This was very helpful. Thanks for posting it.
MightyLawns T.V.: awesome vid!
Dan Freeman: Thanks for the video, so well done! I'm gonna go tackle my mower now!
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
Russ Young: I need help on the same mower to fix the pull start cord it snapped.
Have you got any video of that
Dean Lee: Thanks A lot.
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 ..
Tony Quartano: Thanks for this video!
Megan Bares: How do you adjust the idle on this model? It seems to rev extremely high.
Hillbilly Critic: YO
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.
Freddie Cruz: Sweet! Great Video!
Hillbilly Critic: COOL
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.
ron buth: greate
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
Glen Stockley: Born teacher! Idiot proof - thank you
tnt5182: I have done all the above and it still won't start. Its starts with carb
cleaner theb quits. Any solutions?
