My blow snower is a very old Toro which requires the gas oil mix. It
ran for a couple hours after I bought it (used) and the carb jet
clogged. After doing this several times, I finally installed a fuel
filter I had on hand.
A year or so later, I jammed a pice of wire into the auger, while
blowing someone else's driveway for free. Grrrr....
The local parts place had a replacement belt, but it was tangled up
into a tiny little bag. It came out all pretzel like. I put the belt
in, and it promptly skipped the pulley, and jammed. Grr.... $15 shot
With some internet search, I found another place that had belts. This
time I invoked the evil eye "break your leg and your neck" and bought
two belts. The blowthrower has run perfectly since then, and the spare
belt hangs on a coat hook.
