Wondering if Glitter is shoving snow to cover Enzyte Bob's Acura? And speaking of Enzyte Bob and his Acura ever replace a head light? A friend of mine was complaining that a headlight bulb was over a hundred bucks .

Anyhow, I was trying to get this snowblower running, and stupidly left gas in it over the year. I drained it from the fuel bowl, which came out yellowish in color. After about a 1/4 tank the fuel cleared up. I then was able to get it running, but the fuel bowl kept leaking after numerous attempts of refitting.

Could that old fuel have made pinholes in something(didn't leak while it sat all summer)?
It also leaked when I pushed up and down on the needle thing and as it was running.
I read about putting some epoxy or glue around the bowl for pinholes, but not sure if its something else that's common.

But Bob's Acura is a hair older than that. I think his bulb might be a type of oil lantern.

Sounds like the seals around the recess for the bowl and elsewhere have dry rotted or the "epa safe fuel" was safe for tree huggers but not the snowblower.:-( look to see if there is a gasket / seal kit available for it and never ever ever let gas sit around long. Or better yet catch a brickman beaner with a blower or power broom and make them clear the snow

I was too frustrated to look at it today. Then to think about all the other tools I have new gas sitting in iced the cake.

I didn't think it was supposed to leak gas or drip with the fuel bowl OFF. Only when you push up on the float or needle part inside the bowl. Basically, that fuel bowl was full of gas, and started leaking when I unloosened its bottom bolt. That's what had me wondering in the first place if I could even drain it from there. Instead, I tried it anyway because of the guards and placement of the fuel-line approach.

Float goes up if no hole in it shutting of fuel when bowl is full. If the rubber like tip of needle or the seat is bad it will flow fuel until it floods. If you take the.bowl loose or the bolt in the bottom holding it tight to the carb fuel will.flow. things all good float up fuel stops until bowl fuel is used. When bowl is low float goes down fuel flows.

OK, Thanks.
I couldn't remember which way that float shut-off fuel (up it gets fuel or up it don't get fuel). I'm going to take it off tomorrow.

Yard Machine: Single-stage 21" (5yrs old, barely used)
I think I left the same gas in it 2 years in a row at one time. It might have 20 hours running, all together. A couple years I forgot even having it.

Don't.know.what would be on that for.and engine. Noticed MTD (troy bilt Yard man mtd.yard machine) having their own name on the.engine instead of a Briggs Honda Kohler or Tecumseh.
I have.been look for a used honda with hydro drive for my grandmother. Those can creep along with the auger at.full rpm.

I never noticed it having a different name for the engine. It most likely is its own model.
It looks similar to 1st image below.

I took that bottom bolt out and it leaked constant.

The inside had a float similar to this: http://outdoorpowerinfo.com/repairs/images/te...

Up is off, down is on. With the bowl off, if you gently push the float up and the fuel stops, you will be ok. When you put the bowl back on, make sure the gasket is in place properly and don't over tighten the bolt. The bowl will fit in a groove on the carb. If it still leaks, the gasket is probably cracked.
