Tecumseh Engines Carburetor

Posted in Home & Garden by admin on May 29, 2010 2 Comments

My lawn mower won’t start and sprays gas out of the muffler when I pull the starting cord.?

Is it the float in my carburetor? It is an old Murray with a 3.5 HP Tecumseh engine. What should I do? It isn’t worth much, I’m sure. Thanks.

Those old Tecumseh’s are like bullet-proof! Full choke that sucker and rapid pull many times, swiftly….It should pop off and burn off the excess. Make sure it’s fresh fuel if it hasn’t been run for awhile. It’ll run.

    Have a 6.5hp Tecumseh in a riding mower. Need specific instructions on how to take the carburetor off. Not the normal carb like on a 3.5hp. Thanks. Any help will be appreciated.

    the gasket on the carb bowl is shot on my Toro 6.5. I have attempted to seal it several different ways and it will run for a while till air starts to get in. Where can i get a new carb bowl seal???
