Re: Tecumseh 2 cycle snowblower engine: How much compression to run?
Carb kit installed (cleaned the carb and the kit came with a new diaphram), it fired up and ran after the gas reached the carb. Took a bit to get it to warm up; typical as I recall. The choke has two positions. Initial start uses full choke for a cold start. Once it warmed up, the engine would stall with choke off. Runs and surges at partial choke, but when I place it under load of the auger ON, I can go with choke off and it runs good.
I think it just needs a few tanks of gas run through it once we get some snow.
