Honda hs828

Engine runs mint, but leaks lately like crazy from this fat tube coming out of the top of the carb? I don't know if it's gas or oil...actually, don't even know if it's the carb, I'm not a small engine mechanic...this snowblower is wicked old too, maybe 20 yrs...they don't make an 828 any more, it's not a track blower either..anyone have a clue? I hope it's a gasket or something easy, thing starts right up but this leak is HUGE!! Thanks for any input..sorry I'm so dupid...

Sounds like maybe the oil is over filled.

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

I wonder if it's oil overfilled you should smell the oil for gas? If so come back here with your findings.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

Welcome, and if is over filled, it is a simple fix. First, make sure that the machine is resting on level ground. Next, find something that is oil absorbent, and cover the ground below the dipstick. Slowly remove the dipstick. If it is overfilled, it will flow out. Honda's fill level, are "duped" proof, pour until it pours out, while on level ground.

Last, reinstall dipstick, and run for a while. Please understand, that may take a few minutes for the oil to fully dissipate from the breather tube, that you have described.

Also, while you have the dipstick out, check to see if the oil is contaminated with gasoline. This is another possibility, where the float seal is not fully seating the needle in the float. This too is overcome-able, by simply shutting the fuel valve off to shut the machine off.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Go here (scroll down to the HS828 listings) and download a digital copy of the owner's manual; it has all the details on controls, service, etc.

Honda 2-stage Snowblower Owner's Manuals

Also, if you'll share the frame serial number with me, I may be able to look up a little history on this specific unit; the serial number is in the form of "SXXX-1234567"
