my mtd snow blower keeps stalling - seems to be starving for gas, was just tuned up
Make: mtdModel: yard machine snow blower
nothing yet, keeps stalling, seems to be starving for gas, just tuned up
It does sound like it is starving for gas. Does the carburetor on your snowblower have an adjustable jet (the main jet at the bottom of the bowl)
dont know - not much of a mechanic, and dont have a owners manuel -
I got the carburator cover off, noot sure what to adjust
Is there a screw at the bottom of your carb with a spring above it?
yes, questions is tighe or looser
Loosen that screw in 1/4 increments. That will give your engine more fuel. Factory setting is 1 1/2 turns out.
I am going to start with the screw all the way in....they you are saying 1/4 turns - factory setting it 1/12 turns?
Start with the factory setting one and one half turns out. Then open it in 1/4 increments till it stops stalling.
