Question and Answers

Q:

once I get my snowblower started, it won't stay running - it keeps stalling in a minute or less??? 536884331 Craftsman Snowthrower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the snow thrower dying after starting. I know how frustrating that is. 

The most likely suspect would be an internal blockage in the carburetor, which is starving the engine of fuel. 

I would pull the carb from the engine. With a full can of carb cleaner, a wire brush, and a bread tie wire to poke through and clean the main jet; I would recommend a very thorough cleaning. Start by taking off the float bowl. Douse it very liberally with carb cleaner, and undo the pin for the float, and remove the needle and float. Clean them very thoroughly with the wire brush and carb cleaner. Pay close attention to the seat the needle sits in and clean it well. Once clean, start brushing the carb bowl and body and make sure you get all the varnish out. It may take three or four brushings with carb cleaner dousing in-between. From there, take the straw of the carb cleaner and shoot carb cleaner through any little hole or passageway of the carb. Shoot out the throat of the carb and poke the main jet with the bread tie wire. You have to make sure you get everything the first time, if you leave anything behind, it’s likely to reclog once you have it reassembled.

Q:

Craftsman snowblower #536.884331, Need tecumseh engine size for model HSK600-1677P. in title

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

There is a carburetor repair kit (part 632559), but it does not include the float spring (632386). The float bowl gasket is offered in the kit, but if you just need the gasket and the spring, it may be worth purchasing them singly. The gasket is part 485-862. The primer hose has since been discontinued (part 1259), so you will need to match up a fuel hose from an automotive store and cut to length. 

I am not sure what you mean by size of engine, but I have linked below the model specific service manual for the engine.
