- Just a 1/2 mile from Freedom.
No surging no smoking. Just bogs down when I try and throw snow. I haven't tried to purposely stall it out as I did have to move some snow (trail for the dogs). I've always added Stabil to my gas tanks on end of winter storage, and this has never happened before, snowblower or my generator.I've dealt with this same issue on several small engines.
Also, did the fuel go bad? The ethanol will absorb water, separate in the bowl, and start to corrode the bowl and jets. No use trying to rebuild. Just buy a new carb.
I'd have to hear it, but if your bogging under load but still idling you could be sucking air (loose), or fuel starved due to clogged up carb.
Is it smoking? Sooty?
Does it surge too?
I want this.
Looks like Ed's will be able to pick it up next week as I don't have a truck anymore to get it down there. Then maybe 1-2 weeks before they can look at it.
