Need help troubleshooting Ariens snow blower
I’ve got an Ariens snowblower that wants to stall anytime it’s on uneven ground but seems to be ok when tilted forward. Full info on the machine and problem in shown in this video (link is safe).
To me, it seems like it runs like crap when it is not under load, but runs fine when loaded up with snow. I couldn't detect any tilt impact from the video. My guess would be that it is running rich, maybe the the choke is not coming off ?
Seems like the idler jet is rich, which is strange because when dirty they go lean, , new carb is $20 I just replaced one on a 254cc Ariens.
Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.

Running very rich, is the choke open or possibly stuck closed?

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
