Default Need snowblower mechanic

I need to hire a mechanic with a snowblower problem I'm having. It's a John Deere 1032 and I'm having carb problems. It's running, just not very well. I have to have the choke on either full or half, otherwise it dies.
I've messed with some of the obvious things and still am having no luck. I can always take it to the Deere repair in Parker, I just thought I'd hire someone from the forum to give them the work first.
I live near Belleview and Sims.
Thanks,
Chris

I bet a good cleaning of the carb would fix that issue!! In my experience with my motorcycle doing a very similar thing.. Taking apart the carb completely and spraying it out with carb cleaner and putting it back together always resolves the issue for me!! When you clean it you prob. wont actually see anything dirty... but it is small particles.

Just remember on the screws(Idle, Air/Fuel) to count how many turns out they are set to so when you put it back together you can set them exactly how they were.(I assume it use to run fine with the current settings?)

And if you need to replace the gaskets or anything they usually dont cost more than a few $$ And i bet with a little Google research you can find a diagram that breaks down every piece of the carb.

Ice fisher, did you drain all the gas out last spring and put brand new gas in this winter? Most of the problems with seasonal equipment comes from old gas. If that is not a problem then you do need to clean the carbs. I'm off Bowles and Simms so we are neighbors and I'd look at it for you, but I'm not a profesional, just get lucky sometimes. Let me know.

Theres also a John Deere shop in Lakewood if you have to take it somewhere, pretty sure its called Four Seasons. I have allot of small 2 cycle stuff for my business and I had good luck with a product called Tune-Up in the can, just remove the plug spray the stuff in for 15 sec pull the cord about 5 times then let it sit for 20 mins. Seemed to clean it out pretty good and the product was about $4 a can.

Thats a interesting picture rvinson, it's the same carb on my toro 521, which has a 5hp Tecumsah engine.

Just a quick update: I took Trout's advice and bought Tune Up in a bottle, Lucas makes it and I found it at Advance Auto.
I also cleaned the carbs and made more adjustments and it's running really well. I also put the Lucas product in the gas tanks of the snowmobile and ice auger, they are now running much better also.
Thanks for your help everyone, this forum and the help you can get is awesome!!

NICE!! Just glad it is back up and working Time to put it to use!!

Once you pulled the carb apart and cleaned it i bet you realized that there is actually not that much to a carb :/ They can be a major PITA though!!
