I bought a used bolens 24" snowblower with a shot 6hp engine. I
replaced that engine with a new 8hp Tecumseh HMSK-80 engine with a
recoil start. Had to drill new holes in the body of the snowblower,
clean up the transmission for easier shifting, but no big deal.
Anyway, yesterday it started and worked great and I even plowed a
little bit of snow. Then I left the snowblower outdoors overnight, and
in the morning it was approximately 8F or so, quite frosty.
I tried to start it, at no avail. It just would not start. I did push
the primer bulb, opened the choke etc. There is fuel in the
carburetor. It felt as though there is no spark. Any idea whether it
could be the case, or is there anything else I forgot to check?
The gasoline is about 1 year old.
