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.

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?
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?
