Did this video help you?

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? Regards

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?

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 like new!

James pier: Dony, I have replied to you via you tube and have not received an answer. Are you receiving my comments? James

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 works?

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?

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?

donyboy73: make sure the linkage is on correctly
