Sno-tek 24

I have a sno-tek 24, model # 920402. The RPM is throttling high and low. I purchased a carb kit and cleaned out the pins, but the problem is still there so I'm assuming the next step would be to replace the fuel lines. Does anyone know what size the fuel line is and a recommendation where to purchase? Thank you.

I'm trying to be more of a hands on guy rather than send it in for service. I've been bad in the past in that I didn't put stabilizer in during the summer and now I'm paying for it. I've learned my lesson, but on that note, it's forcing me to learn how to fix engines

I have a Sno Tek 724 but I don't have any problems w/it. You'll need an engine service manual probably, to get the fuel line size unless you contact Ariens. They can probably tell you.
Just a side note I don't think the fuel lines will help.

Yeah, I'll agree with Joe. Fuel lines are not likely to be causing the hunting problem. I think there are magical potions you can pour in the tank that may give some relief. I don't know what country you're writing from, Andrew, but the E10 gasoline found in the USA is not your friend in terms of long-term storage. Do you have access to ethanol-free gasoline?

I always use Seafoam and Startron. Others may disagree but I have never had any problems. I don't use StaBil.

Weird, I didn't get any notifications for the replies. Thanks so much everyone, you saved me a lot of time. I'll try the Seafoam and see if I can get it to stop surging. If that doesn't work, I'll drop by for more advice.

I'm out in Canada by the way, Edmonton AB to be specific.
