snow blower will not hold a start


Hi Everyone. I have a yard machine snow blower and it starts fine. The problem is that it stalls out after about 10 seconds. If i keep pumping the primer it will keep going but i cant do the drive way while pressing the primer. I thought i may be the primer pump itself because it had a crack so i replaced it and still the same problem. Any ideas or advice would be great! Thanks.

Mike

Any closed gas line valve or pinched gas line? Give the engine maker a call; http://support.mtdproducts.com/app/a...etail/a_id/204

Ayuh,... I agree,... The carb has Crud in it...
Take it off, 'n disassemble it, Clean it, 'n rebuild it...

Rebuild Kits are available at small engine shops, or on-line....
