8hp tecumseh on a snowblower....ran great last year...start it up this year...now has a hunting problem...and I don't mean jack-rabbits...
I have had the carb off three times...have chased ever orfice with a wire and air...carb cleaner...checked fuel tank and line...still will not stop hunting severly...won't idle at all...will run wide open and if the motor is loaded as in blowing heavy snow it will stop hunting and pull good...i'm ready to look for the shovel...
any help would be appreciated....

Number on Carb. 5002D7T
Engine Model HMSK80 155545V (H)
Engine Family VTP318U162RB


Thanks

Yep go with the Joker with the pulg route.Was the old plug OILY,,,WET?.
Then how old is the gas in the tank,,,did you drain it and put in new gas????.
Gummy gas will play havoc on a just cleaned carb,,,,as if you never cleaned it.

well people... its a sad day when it takes four tries...but...let it snow, let it snow... I think the problem was in the bowl bolt and its idle circuit... its running like a champ again... thanks for giving me an outlet to vent my frustrations and for all the suggestions...

thanks
