My ST1032

First, sorry for my bad english, I hope you understand

I bought a ST1032 for some days ago. And I dont know so much about this type.

It is really hard to start on cold motor, but when I get it running it runs fine.
It backfires a bit when I adjusts down the throttle.
There is a hose from the valve cover to the carb that got som cracks. What is the function to this hose?
And it dont throw the snow so far away, just a few meters. I`ve put on a home made impeller kit, and it did help a bit.
Any tips for some of this?

It have been repainted of a previous owner, but maybe someone can se what year model this is?

Nice machine !!

I would tip it up so you can see the carburetor and check to see if the primer hose is still attached to the carb. As a machine ages it's very common for the hose to get saturated with gas and expand, deteriorate and fall off.

Have you checked the auger belt for wear ??

that motor (briggs) might not have a primer.

You can try turning-out the main jet by 1/8th of a turn (Counterclockwise) to make it more rich at start-up. Once its running, turn it back to the original position.

The short throwing distance sounds like a worn, misadjusted belt or the engine not running at full RPMs.

that hose is a breather tube, it helps to recycle crankcase gases that were unburnt to be reburnt. i really wouldnt worry about it

Hi again.

What is "normal" fuel consumption to this machine?
Mine have used about 5 litres for 3 hours. Is that a bit much..?

It's a big engine. I haven't tracked my fuel usage closely, but 5 liters (1.3 gallons) in 3 hours doesn't really seem excessive to me, especially if the blower was working hard during those 3 hours.
