How do you know if a carburetor float is bad?
I have a 8 hp Troy-bilt snow blower. When I press the gas bubble (5x) to prime my snow blower engine, a little bit of gas leaks from the bottom of the carburetor. The snow blower engine also hesitates a little while it is running. It has even back fired once. I was thinking that maybe the float is bad or it needs a tune up? My problem started while I was snow blowing my driveway last winter. Prior to that it was running great. I even went and got fresh gas but the problem is still there. I'm trying to narrow the problem down so i don't get taken when my snowblower is in the shop.
