no start

I have a toro snowblower thats been sitting for a few years.Trying to get it going.Pulled carb really dirty.Took it apart and cleaned the best I could.Put new fuel line in and plug and oil.Will start for few seconds with starting fulid but thats it.I think carb is shot so I ordered a new one.Do you think the new carb will do the trick.

More than likely the new carb will give it new life. Sounds to be fuel related anyway

More than likely, your old carb is still good. When they're really dirty, it's not unusual that it take more than one cleaning to revive them. If there's a lot of whitish corrosion inside, well, it's not going to be worth the effort. MH

When you cleaned it were you sure to get the 3 little holes in the end of the bolt holding the bowl to the carb?

If you ordered a new carb I am sure it will be fine. Remember that some service carbs come without the choke plate and shaft and have to be swapped over.

For future carb cleaning info, did you remove the welch plugs on the carb to clean behind them? If a non adjustable emissions carb after you pulled the brass nut for the bowl and cleaned the holes did you pull the emulsion tube that is in the center up in the carb? There are small holes in that one as well. also its a must to change the fuel needle AND the rubber seat under it.

I think the new carb will work out just fine. Stick up a post how you make out. If it is an adjustable carb and need a hand adj it. let us know a lot of guys here will help you out.

while you are waiting on new carb. check your gas cap to see if the vent hole is plugged.if the vent hole is not open it will not let gas to the carb. gayland

Ditto with the fuel filter. If it's clogged, well, no fuel for you.
