ProfoundPlasticBag: I followed all of the instructions in your video and was able to get my mower running again. Thank you for posting this video; it was very helpful.
Shawn Robertson: I'm trying to help a friend fix his push mower. It has a new spark plug. I cleaned the carburetor, and replaced the fuel filter. I replaced a sheared of flywheel key. Then it ran for about 2 or 3 minutes and it died. I replaced the magneto, and it started right up but sputtered and back fired and died after 30 seconds. won't start again. I'm starting to get frustrated. Not sure what else to do. I seams weird that it started then died after replacing the Key. Then it starting and dying after replacing the coil. Any advice?
FUNG CHANG: Is it safe to assume that a badly gummed up spark plug like the one in the vid means poor maintenance by the owner? I mean, the air filter looked fairly new, and the carburetor bowl and needle had no issues, so my thinking is that it's just the oil that hasn't been changed in awhile or hasn't been changed regular. Old gas, shouldn't a gas treatment be used when storing over the winter months. Or emptying the tank, and exhausting the fuel supply be a normal step to take before storage? People leave residual water in pressure washers during the winter months and can't figure out why their high priced equipment only lasted for one season. The water needs to be evacuated from the hoses before they freeze. Otherwise the water turns to ice and cracks all the hoses and reservoir.
Paul Patt: I have one that is running too fast. When I adjust the governor slightly the engine misses badly. I presumed that it was the carb. I cleaned it per your video but still have the same symptoms. Any suggestions ? -Thanks
kmrphy11: This was extremely helpful to me in repairing my lawnmower. You provided excellent instructions for someone who doesn't typically do this type of repair. You saved me a bunch of money. Thank you!
Jerry Petercheff: I removed the fixed jet and cleaned out the ports and it is running great again. No need to take the carburetor off. Thanks for the video.
Terry Williams: Thanks for the video. This is a helpful tool on my old mower!!
DAVID HINER: Great video, I fixed my lawnmower in 20 minutes. Thank You
The Amazing Random KId: What is the carburetor bowl model number
Mike Lewman: Excellent video....whoever owned my Toro before had the governor linkage wrong
Kam B: donboy73 my lawn mower used to stall after few minutes run, then I had to pump the 3x button to get it going again for next few minutes, after watching your video I cleaned out the entire carburetor, fuel pan, full pan bolt, changed super small O ring but did not take the floater off or anything, looked clean tho, but I'm having the same stalling issue still! seems like fuel isn't going thru Cuz every time I had to press the 3x button to fill up the thing and then stalls again after few minutes, what should I do?
990stef: Our lawnmower had the starts and then stops after a couple seconds issue. This is our exact model, so this video was very helpful. Our issue ended up being with one of the holes in the bolt being clogged. Thanks for the detailed video which helped us a lot in fixing the issue ourselves!
Bob Rowan: Your videos are great! FYI :: I have a Toro GTS that's 12 years old. Runs like a champ. I put it away properly in the Fall and come Spring it fires right up. Simple seasonal maintenance and keeping an eye on things like the air filter keeps this "Tecumsey" healthy
wcjcnc: Every time a Tecumseh engine blows I giggle knowing there's one less of those piece of crap engines wasting someone's time.
D Watson: Donyboy73 do you find the after market parts work well or do you go with OEM. I need a new bowl and seal.
John Parker: Very clearly explained.
Abel Ocampo: waka
