Engine quits with a backfire when moved into snow. Mechanical Operation of the snowblower is otherwise smooth, it just won't handle any sort of 'load'.
There's a small lever that comes out of the side of the block has a link to the carberator, and can effect the throttle. I think that is the culprit, but I have no idea what it is called or what it's for...
A manual for the 5.0 hp Snow King may be a great help.
Thanks for the offer. I have a OHH50 spec 68018A (H) that I could use a manual (.pdf) for. I just bought a go-kart for my little boy (and myself ) and when I give it throttle, it smokes like a mosquito sprayer and blows oil out the muffler. I've been told it's either rings or valves, but I plan on tearing it down and seeing what needs to be replaced. Thanks again for the offer to members, great site.
