I pull the cord it starts but dies will not stay running. Do I need a new carb?
Also snow thrower was on fire, the way it looks is just the tank and elect.start and spark wire got burned. Can I replace just those things?

Sounds like the carb main jet is clogged, post the mower model number or the engine model number and someone will tell you how to fix it.
For the snow blower we need the manufacturer and model number to see if the parts are available. Have a good one. Geo
