I have an older Tru-Test snow thrower with a 3HP Briggs & Stratton moto
on it. The only way that I can get the unit to start, everytime is t
unscrew the spark plug, pour in a shot of gas, and put the plug bac
in. It will start everytime this way. It appears that the manua
choking system is not working. I am not an expert on Briggs & Stratto
equipment and I am not sure where to start investigation
One other thing to check. Sometimes on snow blowers, the gasket between the
carb and the engine goes bad. Dries out or whatever. I've had a case where
the choke was fine, but air was getting in through the gasket.
If you can't find a replacement, just give it a light coat of Permatex #2
non hardening gasket sealer, and put it all back together.
