Toro 521 Snow thrower

Hi there, (newbe), I have a 1996 Toro 521 Snowthrower, model 38052, Ser.,# 0006512. My father in law recently passed away and I wound up with his snowblower, it has set for a couple of years with gas in the tank. When I turn the gas on it seems to run out of the top of the Carb., I assume it is the needle valve, my questions is, if I replace the needle valve how do I replace the seat. How does the seat come out of the carb, thanks for your help in advance, Jerry......

A good cleaning might take care of your porblems and you won't have to spend any money.

There are some pretty strong carb. cleaners that will do a good job of removing varnish that has built up in your carb. Remove the bowl, clean the float and needle and spray the seat area good. You may also want to wash out the fuel tank and install a new fuel line.
