Could be a stuck float bowl and needle assembly. When taking the bowl and carb apart be careful not to tear the paper looking diaphragm or you will need a new one.
that replacement carb should be complete...looks like it even comes with an intake gasket.would this carb rebuild kit work?

Also if I get a new carb, the float etc.. is already build in right?
If that's the case, would this work?

Not sure what i'm gonna do yet.
i don't understand the discrepancy with those last 2 numbers...I've been ignoring them (rebuilding the 7hp version of your motor).Not sure what i'm gonna do yet.
At $20 bucks for the replacement carb shipped. May end up just replacing the whole thing vs rebuilding the current one.
When i put in the serial on the toro site it lists
Does the last 2 number matter at all? 01 vs lets say 99
Yea it's really strange what those last two numbers stand for.i don't understand the discrepancy with those last 2 numbers...I've been ignoring them (rebuilding the 7hp version of your motor).
Yeah sure you betcha, chains might be the ticket for that app.k:k:k:k:k:Got it to work today.
When it was running it was definitely in beast-mode. Throwing show like 15-20ft easy. This is snow from last night into early this morning. (Northern NJ).
Had a moment where it stalled out after about 5 minutes. Let it sit for 10 minutes or so and went back at it.
There were moments when the machine seem to be choking and started to stall when the auger was engaged along with the drive. As soon as I disengaged both the engine would purr again.
What would be the cause of this? (I was sort of low on gas but would that be the cause?)
Overall spent about 2 hours doing the driveway and sidewalks 50 ft deep by 15ft at the widest. A lot of time due to shuffling the cars around.
Also the drive way is about 30-35 degree incline. How do I increase traction? Would chains be my best bet?
Photos of the done drive way coming up shortly.
The snow stuck on the side of the house is from the Toro lol that's about 12-14ft up.
Tha depend, I have a 1132 that has a cover on top+a side panel to protect the carbThat's a good looking machine for being 35+ years old, nice score!
Like PS93 said, make sure to pull the wheels off and grease up the shaft and the drive couplings so nothing rusts together. It appears from the pics that everything is as it should be as far as any missing parts. The heater boxes on the B&S engines never covered the whole carb like the Tecumsehs do.
One thing I'd suggest is to pull the chute off and either sand it and paint it gloss black or hit it as is with POR15. With a smoother surface than the rusted one I'm guessing it has, it will throw the snow better.
