I did hear that Topflight was sold by Kmart

I recently heard from someone selling a Topflight that it was originally sold by Kmart, but I still could not find any information on it. I figured it was MTD or a similar manufacture. Thanks for the information.

Topflight snowblower 5/24

Hello,

I believe I have the same snowblower:

Topflight 5/24, made by MTD, model # 310-600.

It has a Tecumseh engine, but I can't find a model number for the engine.

I need to rebuild the carburetor.

The carburetor is a Lauson, part # 738-9E11.

I have not been able to verify what carburetor kit I need to rebuild it.

Can anyone help ?

Air filter / air filter housing for same engine/carb ?

AJ,

thanks for the response--I was able to order the correct kit for this snowblower.

I bought it recently and am getting it running before the snow comes.

I realized now that it does not have an air filter, or an air filter housing.

Is the air filter and the air filter housing one and the same?

What part number(s) am I looking for ?

Thank you!

Snow engine

Snow blower/thrower engines do not have air filters. If a filter was there it would get wet and freeze choking the engine. There should be a metal box around the carb and muffler to heat the air around the carb. We would need the engine model and spec number for the correct part.

air cleaner ?

AJ,

thanks for the response again.

I have a lot of experience working on automotive engines, but little on small engines.

I have not been able to find an engine number on this engine!

The carburetor kit part you mentioned is the correct one--would I be incorrect to deduce that the air filter cleaner, if there was one, would match the carburetor?

There is a metal box that goes around the carburetor--I was just surprised--thinking that since I had bought this snowblower 'needing work' maybe the air filter had been left off.

I assumed all gasoline engines had some sort of air filter. But that would make sense that it would get wet and freeze. I guess the metal box keeps things from getting into the carburetor throttle body

Tecumseh

e,

Your engine model is most likely an HS50 the spec number will start with 67 and then 3 more numbers and a letter. If this engine has an electric starter the numbers may be covered by the starter switch. They should be stamped into the blower / rewind starter cover. The engine only had the carb cover no filter

I believe that this engine will be a full size Tecumseh and therefore be a H50. Using some emery cloth, 120 grit or so, sand away on the top of the blower shroud in the vicinity of the spark plug and you should reveal the engine ID numbers. If this engine has an electric starter AND the starter button box is mounted to the top of the engine on the blower shroud you'll need to remove this to find the ID numbers.

Your shave plate is part number 05622-0637 and the slide shoe is part number 05571 which supersedes to 784-5038B-0637. The new part number for the slide shoe is a much larger shoe than the original and is reversible but also much more expensive. Any slide shoe with a 3" center on center set of slots should work and there are many manufactures that use a 3 " center on center slot. You can get the parts from any MTD dealer. Support your local dealer. I have all of MTD on microfiche.

is on plate attached to a Tecumseh engine. I need to buy a carb re-build kit and a new shroud for the carb. Do you have a source and part number for such?

Luredale,

I would need the model and spec number for the engine. You will find them on the blower/rewind cover up by the spark plug. If your engine has an electric starter the numbers may be covered by the starter switch. It will also help if you post the numbers that are stamped on the top of the carb. It is also best to post a new thread when you ask a question some fourm members don't look at old posts and many members can help you.

I have a Topflight snowblower 524 as well, the pully ripped right off its center mounting (looked to be welded on, but that might have been done by its former owner who was a pipe-fitter) that attaches to the drive shaft. Can you get me a part number on the pulley and let me know what sort of tool I might need to get the old mount off? Many thanks.

I would need the model and serial number of the machine if this Pulley is part of the blowwer or the engine model number if this pulley is part of the engine

Hello Everyone,

I also have just acquired a Topflight 5/24 and it seems to have an issue with the Auger clutch. It starts, runs & moves, but when you try to engage the Auger, It lugs the engine & if held there will kill the motor.
I believe it to be something Jammed in a gearbox or something worse as the person I got it from stated they hit a pretty large stone which busted the shear pin on one side & resulted in it becoming jammed.

I do not have any books on this unit..... Any guideance would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Blower removal on MTD 310-600-A

Hi all-

I caught a small but mighty rock between the auger and the blower (I believe that is what you call the 2nd stage thrower of snow?)

The result is that the blade(s) of the blower are bent and are now striking the housing. I need some "forest view" guidance to taking this blower out.

It seems that the rolled steel pins need to come out and maybe disassemble the whole front half of the machine too?

Whilst I'm in there, maybe I should lube some major components like the gearbox etc.?

I have found some manuals online, I think they are for my machine. When I google the numbers on my model # plate, there seems to be no reference to the last number set - my plate says 310-600-A J169B.

Any help is appreciated

- Walter

electric start

I just recently purchased a topflight 5/24. I can see it has a tecumseh engine but the model number is pretty rusted and can't make it out i can see it is HS50 671???. I want to get an electric start for it but i am unsure of which starter i need. The machine does have a sticker on it that says electric start ready. Thanks for any help. Brandon

You need 33290E if you install it incorrectly you will destroy the cylinder you must use the correct number of washers and the correct length bolt or you will punch a hole into the cylinder on the top mounting bolt.

Electric start

I've seen a lot on sale that have the 33290E but then there are some that say 33290 then a different letter like C and D. Also some models say that they will work for 33290A,B,C,D, and E. Is there a difference? Thanks a lot again you've been more than helpful!

Carb Parts

Reading the threads, it does my heart well to see there are other TopFlite snowblower users out there. I have an "antique" - must be 25 to 30 years old. My wife says "buy a new one". But this one starts and runs with a single pull, and I am able to keep it running (well, almost). I have a problem with the carb - developed a small gas leak. So, our wonderful ethanol must be getting to it. Thus, I will need a new carb or a re-build kit. When I try to get parts around here, the dealers kind of chuckle at me, and say "good luck". Is there a chance I can get one of these????

The machine model # is: 311-800-120 J100B
The engine is Tecumseh model # : HM80 - 155127G SER 0242D
(from the top plate by the spark plug - its kind of worn and faded but thats what it looks like)

Thanks, KK

Question To Aj! the man with the mighty Fische!

I'm hoping you still have your topflite file handy. Needing the part number and where to buy a replacement "transmission drive wheel". A little rubber wheel inside that presses onto the large spinning disk, and the position of the little wheel determins the drive wheel speed/direction. I hope that helps to keep it clear. model# 310-600-120 H279B

(for some reason the MTD parts site does not admit this snowblower exists.)

Thanks for your kind assistance!

Go to a snapper dealer and ask to see a snapper driven disk. I understand that many snowblowers use one that is compatible with the snapper one.

you might find that it's much like this one
Outdoor Distributors - Lawn Mower Parts!
and this is likely the part you need.
Amazon.com: MTD Part 753-0628 KIT-FRICTION WHEEL: Patio, Lawn & Garden
The friction wheel was changed to this kit I think. I bought the kit years ago but I'm not sure what number I would use if I just wanted to replace it's wheel.
actually think I found it. Just the rubber itself gets replaced

Drive wheels for a Topflite

I have a Topflite 5/24 model 310-600-120 that has the tractor type lug drive wheels that are almost wore out. Anyone know the part number of these wheels or a replacement number - plus where can I go to get them? My local dealer was no help. Thanks.

Unfortunately part number 734-0829 tire 12.5 X 3.5 is NLA so you will need to find from a newer machine an entire assembly as I can find no tire available in that size 12.5 is the height & 3.5 is the rim size
