Customer Question

I have an HB 26 blower with a clogged carb, I think. It runs but sounds like it is starving of fuel when I increase the throttle. I injected Gunk carburetor cleaner into the air intake which helped momentarily, but quickly reverted back.
Any help for this old machine?

Fuel lines ever been replaced? Fuel lines not split at the carburetor connections? Primer showing any air bubbles when pumping? Carburetor shows to be obsolete. I see carbs for TB26 etc, for less than $20 onEbay, but you would have to try and match.
