8hp tec surging\hunting even afte rebuild??

i just bought this snowblower 8hp with series 3 carb tecumseh craftsman

this part that im also concerned with is pull cord is sometimes hard to pull and kicksback???

i soaked the carb overnight in methyl hydrate and then cleaned it with carb cleaner. and changed seat, float, bowl, needle and bowl gasket. i even changed the gasket between the carb and intake pipe

If its still hunting, did you play with the governor at all? If not, the carb is still not clean, enough. On the kickback, you may want to check the flywheel key. It might be partially sheared.

You have to take the flywheel off to check the key.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Some times you can see the key is partially sheared by just removing the flywheel nut. Otherwise as stated above, the flywheel will have to come off. Its not a big job.
