Re: P.O.S. snow blower

tried everything lean/rich 35:1 to 60:1. when i try the throttle cable, it might help a little. this thing is just as finiky as my damn rm250 it only wants to run on race gas.
this will be the last Tehcumsa i buy

Re: P.O.S. snow blower

my dad has turned to spraying the chute with silicone spray before he goes out and does the wet snow.

Re: P.O.S. snow blower

keep in mind.....depending on the wetness (wetter the better [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]) and the size of your driveway, you may need to reapply. one fix not to try....digging it free with your hand.

Re: P.O.S. snow blower

while still grasping the handles of our snowblower i gave a nfl punters style kick to the rear of it. once it came back down and hit the ground.......i determined i need to go buy parts for it. broke about 3 pieces
