I have a MTD snowblower. The original carburetor was leaking gas so ordered a new carburetor online from an authorized Tecumseh dealer. After verifying the carburetor was the same, swapped out the old carburetor with the new one. Now the red throttle lever won't move the throttle butterfly. Looks like the linkage is not long enough. Are there different lengths of linkages? Any suggestions?
Welcome to the forum, as for the carb, can you not take the linkage if any from the old and put on the new. Pictures would help and or more info on your unit.
Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.
It sounds like you have the linkage wrong. The rod from the govenor goes to the middle hole on the throttle lever on the carb. It would help if you can provide what size Tecumseh your working on. The pic's I attached are an 8hp
