I have a TRS26 snowblower which for the most parts runs fantastic. The issue I have is when I first start it. Typically, it fires up on the first pull after I prime it 3 or 4 times. It will run for maybe 10 seconds the stall out no matter where I have the choke or throttle. It will start right up again, then stall out. Usually I have to do this 4, 5, or more times to get it running. Once it warms up it is fine. Just looking on suggestion as to what I can do to fix it. Thanks!

Thanks for the info.

Spark plug looks good...just put a brand new one in actually. Do you know of any resource for adjusting the carb?

and thanks for posting that, Grunt. It should help me with troubleshooting a few of the POS TRS-27s I have.

As Ryan said but you should try it again when cold and full throttle and full choke and as soon as it starts bring your finger close to the primer and when or if it starts to stall give it a quick press on the primer and repeat until engine run by itself.
Afterwards with engine off and full choke I would check if the flap is fully closed as maybe it does not choke enough for a cold engine and if it is the case, it is just a small adjustment. You will likely have to remove the box over the carb. Try this and tell us how it went. Also check if the fuel line is kinked anywhere.
