I usually start by picking out the biggest hammer I have in my tool box. Just can be pretty daunting when looking at all the sheet metal and plastic around everything, but it's really pretty simple and straight forward for the most part. Usually just a screw driver or two, a wrench to remove the carb from the engine, a can of carb cleaner and some compressed air and you should be in business.

Looking at the parts diagram, the engine and carb looks pretty darn like a Honda, or one of the clones.

Take a look at some of the things on this site. Look under service, then service information and service videos.

This fellow has so many useful and helpful videos on his YouTube page, I'm sure you can find what you need to know.

The Small Engine Doctor - YouTube

There's also a lot of helpful information about the removal and cleaning of carbs here.

Hope that helps you a little bit. Hopefully somebody with more specific knowledge of your machine will come along.
Thanks for the respomse.

This is an MTD 300 Series engine-whatever that is.

There has to be a shop guide for this model snowblower, as in a sequence of stuff to remove before you can access the carb. i.e. handle, cowling etc...

I have never seen where the 2 nuts that hold the carb in place also hold the cowling and stuff together. The knobs have to come off then that plate comes off, wrong more and you are ordering parts.

I was able to drop the bowl and remove the float and needle valve...but i want more. LOL
