Received my $14.00 Chinese carb from Amazon for the CCR 2000. The emulsion tube was stuck on the old one. Hope to install this weekend as the weather is pretty nice.

Will be interested to hear how the aftermarket carb works on the Suzuki engine.

Found some time after work to toss the new China made carb on my CCR 2000. Replaced the fuel and primer lines also as they came with the carb. To lazy to replace the fuel filter. Fired right up, still surged pretty bad at idle. Backed the mixture screw out about a turn or so and she smoothed right out. So far so good. If I only had some snow....

I started off-season maintenance on the Toros today. I washed down the 724, ran it out of gas for now, changed oil, opened the bottom end and cleaned & lubed. All looked good. Since this machine now has the Predator engine, with metal gas tank, I think I will go with keeping the tank full in the off-season (as directed in the Predator user manual) and running every 3 months or so. I also washed down the CCR2000, but didn't run it out of gas yet. I'm thinking we may still get 1 or 2 more snows this season, and the single stage should be fine.

I didn't even use the 421 this season, I only ran it in the garage one time in early January. Same for the 521, which my neighbor usually uses but did not this year.

thinking about doing the same, off season maintenance ready for storage, yesterday it hit 60 over night stayed at the upper 40 range. sadly it seems time to bring the mowers out of swap in the blowers than it's still march and the robins being seen this early normally drag some wet and cold in with them

Ugh, it feels early to be putting machines away. But with the way the "winter" is going, yeah, maybe I should drain the gas out of the 2-stage. And I could easily run the carb dry in the single-stage. It's seeming unlikely at the moment that I'll need the 2-stage again this season. Unless it's a pretty decent storm, I can just use the SS to clear everything.

yeah, seems early, but no biggie. If we get a monster storm, I will be happy to bring the 2-stage out of its short hibernation. Also, funny timing for me, it was snowing quite hard here earlier this morning, but only for a few minutes, and it will be in the 40's later today. I think maybe the snow gods are messing with me.
