    @patsguy369 yes the disc is to turn the wheels, not the augers

  2. patsguy369 says:

    @donyboy73 nice

  7. shaymaster1 says:

    should you drain the oil before tipping it up like that?

  8. donyboy73 says:

    @Nickster7ROR yes a carb problem, look up my tecumseh carburetor repair videos

  9. motorhead1 says:

    Those ratcheting closed end wrenches come in handy for jobs like this.

  10. Nickster7ROR says:

    Very helpful mechanical videos. My grandpa has an ariens auger propelled, two stage blower with a tecumseh engine. The engine does not run when the choke is completely off, or if it is not running full throttle. Is this a carb. problem?

  11. whitegreg56 says:

    Good to see it in action!!!! All the work these small engines are doing is amazing.

  12. donyboy73 says:

    @icomeforu2 turn the fuel valve off, make sure the tank isn’t too full because it will come out of the cap

    @custer123100 mid 70′

  14. custer123100 says:

    Ariens snowblowers are the best! What year is that one?

  15. icomeforu2 says:

    What steps do you take to prevent gas from leaking out of the carb when you tip the snowblower up on it’s end.

  16. weasel884 says:

    nothing better than a ariens snowblower!

  17. zigZag776 says:

    @craig1974 I allow. Such a true statement. The old machines were built to last and the new ones are just built cheaply.

  18. Liamautomechanic says:

    @donyboy73 aye, the weather, is not so bad , here,these times, about + 6 today, rain, a bit warmer,

  19. craig1974 says:

    May i add that its sad people overlook the longevity of these old machines compared to the brand new ones.

  20. craig1974 says:

    Thats an easy job compared to my 6hp Ariens. On mine you need to remove the whole drive assembly to change the disc.

  21. donyboy73 says:

    @Liamautomechanic filmed it a while ago. still cold here, 0 celcius today

  22. Liamautomechanic says:

    Good vid, there don,

  23. donyboy73 says:

    @danysniper22 hopefully this summer, i’ll be fixing that ct 90 in my garage

  24. danysniper22 says:

    Hey don, can we see more videos on small motorcycles/mopeds etc? including riding them, thanks

  25. donyboy73 says:

    @gdc241 go to my channel and look up tecumseh carburetor repair and in some of those vids i show a seat. the decompressor id to make it easier to start the saw. it shuts itself when it starts up
