How To Fix A Snow Blower That Stalls--Carburetor Rebuild
This blog provides step-by-step instructions for rebuilding a carburetor on TORO snowblowers.
Make sure the engine has cooled and remove the snow blower’s start key from the ignition before you begin this repair.
Step 1: Remove the gas tank cap and remove the screws at the front of the main cover and at the rear, then pull the main cover off. Now remove the screw to detach the starter button housing and remove the nuts securing the carburetor and cover, then pull the cover free.
Step 2: Clamp the fuel line with pliers or other things like that, release the spring clamp and pull the fuel line off the carburetor, then pull off the primer tube. Now remove the spring and throttle linkage from the carburetor and pull the carburetor off the mounting studs.
Step 3: You are now ready to rebuild the carburetor. First, you need to loose the bolt to remove the float bowl.
Next, you can use needle nose pliers to remove the pin and pull off the float and needle. Then, replace the bowl gasket and O-ring.
Step 4: Now you need to assemble the new spring and needle and attach them to the new float, position the float and needle assemble in the carburetor, and secure the assembly with the pin. Then reinstall the float bot and secure it with the bolt. You can use the new or existing hardware when reinstalling the carburetor.
Step 5: Slide the rebuild carburetor onto the mounting studs, connect the spring, the throttle linkage, and the primer tube. Then, attach the fuel line to the carburetor and secure the spring clamp. Remove the pliers or other things clamping the fuel line.
Step 6: Reposition the carburetor cover and secure the nuts. Put the carb cover back and secure the nuts as well as the starter button housing and secure the screw. Reposition the main cover and secure it with the screw at the front and at the rear. At last, reinstall the gas tank cap.
With the rebuilt carburetor installed, you can now return the start key to the ignition.
