    Fired up my single stage snowblower. For some reason it will only run while the choke is on. I let it warm up for 5 minutes and it would still stall if I turned the choke off. Any ideas?

    weedwacker did that too but i think it was because i was mixing 10w40 with the gas instead of two stroke oil.

    i had to post for help on lawnsite.

    Sounds like it is running lean. I assume it is a carb issue. I would atleast take the bowl off it and see if it is very cruddy and atleast try cleanig the carb.
