That's the sticker for the machine, not for the engine, the engine has it's own sticker.

On the back of the engine facing the operator. Look underneath, bend over or stand the snowblower on the auger paddles. It's a sticky label. It will be visible though a flashlight helps.

JLawrence08648 Spray the starting fluid in the carb throat, the opening you can see but if you are going to rebuild the carb, buy a can of carb cleaner and use that to see if it kicks.I

Rebuild or buy a Chinese carb? Do you want to use it this year? Buy Chinese. Rebuilding the carb does not mean the carb will be A-1. You may not even need a rebuild kit, you may only need a cleaning. To learn how to clean a carb, go to YouTube.

MrMonkey Thanks for the quick response. Where would I find the engine model number? Only sticker I've found so far is a snowblower model number. Also, can't tell from your message if you're saying it is better to just buy a chinese carb or if a rebuild would be best. Can you clarify?

Also, without taking the carb apart where would I spray the starter fluid? Thanks!

JLawrence08648 The carb is very easy to remove from that machine, and it's on the left side. The carb is leaking from a seal called a float inlet valve seat. Remove, buy a rebuild kit from the engine model number, not the snowblower model #, buy a can of carb cleaner however probably best to buy a $15 Chinese carburetor online. Drain the gas tank and line. Remember this is a 2 cycle. For regular use buy TC-W3 oil. You can spray some starting fluid in to the carb and see if it kicks. Check to see if it has spark.

Rescue a CCR 3000 GTS?

First post!

I rescued a 3000 from a garbage pile this fall hoping someone was throwing it out for something simple. I brought it home, put some 40:1 in it, pulled the cable and I can't get it to start up. After several pulls it started leaking gas from the left side (where I think the carb is). This will be my first blower so I'm not all that familiar with them. Figured from what I read that it could probably use a carb rebuild and maybe that's what was causing it to spew gas? Don't really want to jump into it blindly, though.

Hoping someone can point me in a more educated direction. Where should I start to see if this thing even works?
