stats snowbird model# tm058205-h229c , ok decided to break down carburetor
And by watching "utube" pro Tecumseh carburetors rebuild videos, well Im no pro but they make it real simple , changing the spark plug , clean gas the works , now it start first pull no problems runs like a champ , sounds real good , , now the problem is it will only run on full choke, I try to open the choke and it want to stall right away, in fact after it warms up it want to stall unless I hold my finger over the carb to lesson the air flow till it runs back to full rpm again , wow ? went back to utube on how to adjust Tecumseh carbs and tried it all "no change" two more things I need to consider is the muffler is shot need to replace and it has no filter over the carb , hmm dont think this will make a difference but

ever try breathing through a 2 inch piece of foam? I'll restrict the air intake on that Tecumseh too!
