You have disconnected the rigid link between the throttle plate on top of your carburetor and the governor arm that attaches withe the spring to your throttle control arm. The governor arm will not move unless the carburetor is reattached, and the rigid link reconnected. What you have now looks normal. MH

Lots of folks here who can help you get that back together and running like it should. Glad to have you join us.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

Moving the handle up and down should get you some movement of the throttle. I think there should be a rod between that handle and the arm on the front of the engine, and then the other rod goes to the carb like you have it. Just watched the video again and when you shoved it all the way up I saw a slight movement of the throttle on the carb. Maybe it just needs adjusted. That screw on there can turn it up, but if you turn it up too far then you can blow the engine up.

The choke is easy to tell when you have the covers off like that. Just look in the hole like you did and when the plate is closed off then that is choking it to make it start easier.

When you prime it it is normal for gas to leak out.

The smoke, that was odd. If it was blowing from the muffler it would be normal, but it seemed to just appear. I wonder if you have a head gasket issue or if it just looked funny.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

It almost sounds like the head gasket is blown. That's the smoke coming out from under the fan shroud. One thing to check, push the drain on the bottom of the float bowl, to verify gas is in the carb. Also, your certain you set the float correct?

can't tell if your carburetor has adjustable mixture screws for high speed and idle jets...not visible in your video. On the underside of your carb, is there a hex nut (non-adjustable) or a hex nut with a small knurled knob on it (adjustable). If the latter, turn it all the way clockwise until it stops...then back it out counter clockwise 1 1/2 turns.
On the left side of your carburetor, you may see a small slotted screw...it is your idle mixture jet. Screw it all the way in clockwise until it stops...then back it out 1 full turn. Now try starting your engine. Note: Newer carburetors don't have the screws so you can't adjust them. MH

Hello and welcome to SBF Janey. The linkage on your machine looks to be in the correct locations. The throttle handle (red knob) has to be all the way up and was difficult to see in the video.You could also try starting it with the choke open since the weather isn't very cold right now. The engine seems to turn over very fast when you are trying to start it and that tells me the compression seems to be low. Did this machine run at all prior to the carb cleaning you did?? Are you certain the spark plug is tightened down since the smoke could be leakage around the spark plug. It could be a bad head gasket as stated and that is why I ask if the machine ran prior to the cleaning of the carb. We are all here to help and just need more information.
