21″ Troy Built Snow King Snow-blower…?

My father has one of these snow-blowers and it won’t run on a low throttle. He’s already changed the gas, etc. He believes it is the carburetor. It is a Tecumseh Model HSK 70 Carburetor. He bought parts (a needle and seat) & I found a HSK 70 diagram online for him to look at. Does anyone know how to put the carburetor back together (just in case he can’t)? Also, any suggestions as to why the snow-blower isn’t working? Thanks so much in advance for your answers!

If it’ll start up and run on high throttle… I’d leave it alone. I never even use a low throttle setting. I run at high throttle and shut it off when done. Works great. The only time I would consider using a lower throttle setting is if I was taking a break… better to just shut it off at that point – safer too. FYI.. the carb may be fine and your throttle cable may need adjustment.

    watched less than a minute; holding his hand up to the camera with the carb completely out of view is worthless – appreciate the effort, but doesn’t help a bit

  • I ride Honda Unicorn 150 cc.. Initially I didn’t used any technique to inreacse mileage.. that time, mileage was 45 km/l .. After findings on internet, I implemented few and tremendously mileage inreacsed to 70+ km/l .. thats outstanding.. tips from my side- warm up for 2 mins.- do not race while warm up. keep the engine rpm on 1000.- do not race to gain speed.. accelerate smoothly.- do not let engine rpm go beyond 3000 before 5th gear.- if you wish to stop or turn, do not use breaks.. instead loose the accelerator 100-200 meter before your point of stop or turn. 100-200 meter depends on speed.. if you are going pretty fast.. then 300-400 meters..- do not accelerate while overtaking.. if you feel that you cannot overtake, then just back off. and try again till front traffic is less.- turn off engine on signals or in traffic jams.- change engine oil after 3000-4000 kms.. as recommended.- servicing regularly.

  • Guys, learn how to maintenance his own bike does not need to be dcilifuft (I used to feel it did). I’ll give you some advice right now. Search a DIY bike repair guide called Bikelanox Manual (google it). Seriously, thanks to that guide I have learn how to tune up my own bike. I probably should not even be mentioning it because I don’t want a bunch of other guys out there running the same game but whatever, I’m in a great mood today so I’ll share the wealth haha.
