Doneby Sunday: Thanks Don ! Looked like the needle seat was brass in my carb, it was just discolored brown. Your video explaining how to remove and replace this little needle seat led me to figure out what that part in my rebuild kit was. I had installed an in line shut off valve because of the carb leaking gas and an in line filter, now I'll keep the in line filter and the valve but really don't need the valve. };-)
T&D Pap: Before I take anything apart, and there is no rubber or plastic showing I have always used brake cleaner (Brake Kleen) it is almost instant and rinse with gas or alcohol or a brush with soapy water and rinse wit clear to remove the dirt and brake cleaner, the outside of the part looks almost new. Is this okay to continue my routine or am I going to harm my very dirty external carbs. on well and hard used Troy-Bilt Roto tillers.
blonchay123: what was the name of the engine cleaner you used?
2cyclemix: Hey Don. It's been awhile since I've cleaned/rebuilt a Tecumseh carburetor. Will this tool work on a needle seat for the newer Briggs engines?
Kevin Holmgren: Thanks for posting this, saved me a lot of hassle.
Grumpyneanderthal: thanks for this video. I rebuilt my Tecumseh 10 hp carb on my chipper shredder. I purchased a carb kit and removed the silver cupped disc above the float (it was rusty), but the replacement cup fits but doesn't stay in place, when I flip the carb over it falls out, so I left it off. engine runs well without it, just wasn't sure of its purpose and whether running without it is bad
Gene Crapsey: NOTE: THE COIL IS UNDER ON THESE OLDER MODELS, YOU CAN NOT GET TO IT TO DO THAT!
John Walker: I use a piece of thick paper,use it as a gauge when tightening the coil down.
donyboy73: you're welcome Bernard
Bernard Galat: I have a 12 year old Simplicity snow blower. For the past couple of seasons it hasn’t been running great in spite of having been serviced regularly including a carb cleaning last year. When I opened the carb it became clear that it only got a superficial cleaning at the dealer. Following your excellent and detailed directions I dismantled and thoroughly cleaned everything. I put it back together, adjusted it as you described and it started up right up. It now runs like new.
Gene Crapsey: How do you set the coil air gap on older tecumseh snowblower with the coil under the flywheel?
BOB Jones: Dony , In ur other video .You say you just replace these parts they under $ 10.00 After 7 years On my blower I replace all inner parts .
Devin Racette: iv cleaned out the whole carb on mine and it still wont run unless you spray starter fluid it it, it wont even start with the primer. any ideas of what i could do?
donyboy73: yes getting one very soon
TheMacandpcguy: have you conciderd buying a ultrasonic cleaner
rwdplz1: I've used that carb tool now on Tecumseh and Briggs carbs, and it's awesome!
bruteman45: What does the float do.?
Kelly Johnson: How come you did not remove the welch plugs? the ports behind them are for the low idle and if your engine is surging or will only run wide open or with the choke partly on then these ports must be cleaned.
just my 2c worth ,
cj71979jeep: Enticer 340 fouled right plug all the time
