Does the plow have skids on it? Is the front tire pressure equal on both the front tires and both the rear tires?


I checked the tires because one looked low earlier this week, but I was wrong, both are at 12psi. The skids are all the way up, no contact with the driveway. I put the rears both at 20psi when I put them on not too long ago.

I think it is the missing linkage that is causing it to turn.


Thanks every one for the help so far!

The linkage could be it if it is letting it put more pressure on one side then the other. You could always adjust the skids so it rides a little lighter on the one side for the time being until you get the missing linkage.

Just wondering now, if I put some cardboard over the spot where the fly wheel sucks air in. Would it help the engine run warmer and strong? It seems to take a while before I can even use high range with out the engine cutting out, I think it is because the engine has not warmed up. Maybe I'm wrong or this before breakfast idea is a lost cause.

I don't think it would be a good idea to restrict air from entering the engine.
I usually let my engines run for 5-10 minutes before I use them.

With the change in temperature the carb probably needs adjusted. The colder it is outside the leaner the mixture and the warmer it is the richer the mixture is. When they are cold it is always a good idea to let them warm up for a couple minutes. I am going to say your carb needs to be adjusted a little richer on both the low speed and high speed. When I say a little I am talking an 1/16 - 1/8 of a turn at a time and no more than a 1/4 turn total.

I would have to say that I don't think it would be a good idea to cover over the air intake to the flywheel.Being air cooled,it needs air circulating through the cooling fins in the head, etc.,otherwise you might create "hot spots",which is something you don't want.

Ok, Thanks. So far it will run and start fine until you get below 20 degrees, than if I can start it there was just no power and the shroud over the head never warmed up in the half hour of running at just above idle. I didn't expect this to be as finicky, I'm used to the single adjustment screw on my LT10's Tecumseh tvm220 that is just a couple years old.

Sounds like when it gets below a certain temperature, your going to have to adjust the setting, then turn it back in warmer weather....
