I was given a snow blower two years ago, older fellow felt he couldn't depend on it cause he had to run it on half choke. So he bought one new, and gave it to me. Looks standard, Tecumseh motor, 6 speeds, etc. I took the carb apart, shot some carb cleaner through it all and it runs fairly good. I thought I would get a rebuild kit for the carb, started looking around, and Amazon has NEW carbs for under 16 bucks! No brainer there.
But what else should I be looking at to make sure it keeps going? Never had one before this, and I could kick myself for not! Things usually break when it's not the best time.
