storm 2410 Carburetor access issue

I bought a Storm 2410 from Lowe's back in Oct 2014. This year it won't start and I tried the easy carburetor drain/clean approach by using the two screws under the carburetor to no success. Now I am thinking to change the carburetor before I dump this machine, however, I found it was extremely difficult to dissemble the cover in front of the carburetor that has the choke/prime/run controls on it: the cover actually extends to the other side of the fuel tank just ends to the inside of the electric start. Is there any idea how I can remove the cover in front of the carburetor? I would be happy to post a picture if I can.

Thatís the big issue with the powermore engines on the MTD blowers, A LOT of screws to remove to get to the carb, It isnít really hard but a little time consuming. Take lots of pics with the phone so you can reference where all the screws go back in. I also have to replace a carb on a 2410 for a friend so I am in the same situation. I think the newer models now have a split in the middle so you only have to remove half the cover but in this case it all has to come off for both of us, sorry for giving bad news.

Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.

Thanks! Is there a way I can dissemble it? I managed to do all other screws but stuck at where the electric starter is.

the starter switch has the two smaller screws on the starter switch
once those two are out the corner will become free as it's held in place by one of those screws, This is the same engine you have but a old parts engine I have so got some pics for you.

Thanks. I did notice the two screws, however, what wrench would be good to remove them? I tried different SAE and Metric wrenches but they just slipped. THe two screws are in the back of the starter so to insert the wrench in is pretty challenging.

Edit: ok, I see what you mean. Actually the two screws can be removed easily as their heads are just as in your photo. These two are pretty long ones. I now have them off already.

Itís the two screws on the starter switch, these were philips head screwdrivers, those are the ones holding the cover on.

Exactly. Thanks! I now have the cover almost out, however, the two chock and run controls seem not able to be removed. Any trick on these two?

Sorry it took so long to reply, The knobs make take a little force to pull off but they clip on with the plastic and if you put a screw driver behind them they come off pretty easily once they start to move.

I have a 2410 too and I've needed to pull the carb as I wanted to make it quit hunting all the time. Drilled the jet. The cover is a pain, the knobs are a pain. It's just a matter of making sure you have a container for all the fasteners and and going from the left to the back to the right side and pulling those knobs off.
