Question by EpicRacer: why wont my snowblower stay running?
i have a very old Troy Built snowblower thats giving me problems. it wont stay running on its own. i opened the fuel line, put new gas and oil in messed around with the fuel mixture settings after my first attempt at starting it didnt last long. i have to use the electric starter cuz i broke the string a while back. it has 4 choke settings and i have to use the 2nd setting (the 1st being full choke) to keep it running. but it doesnt stay running, it sounds like it dies then comes back. when i get it stable, i whent and plowed some snow but when it got a little tough, it stalled on me.
any idea what could be going on? i desperately need to fix this. i have multiple 75ft driveways to take care of and i cant afford a new blower.

Rebuild the carburetor.
Or at least try some carb cleaner first.
If you have a fuel shut off, use it when your done blowing the snow.
Don’t let gasoline sit in carb during the summer.
Gums up the works!
