Toro CCR2000E Mod #38185 Ser 7004xxx Mfg 1987

Hi everyone - I just joined today. I have a Suzuki engine with a Mikuni Carb. I installed a new torsion spring for the float. The reason for this was that the float needle did not stop the flow of fuel and contined to flow after the engine was shut down. The position that i placed it in was based on the diagram in the Toro Parts Manual that I down loaded. Before I order a replacement, I need to find out how to place the correct tension on the spring prior to placing it on the hinge pin holding the float. I read in one of the threads that Camino Kid has the answers to most Toro Snowblower problems. Any assisance will be greatly appreciated. By the way I'm not that computer savy when it comes to forums etc. so if I fumble please advise.

The purpose of the torsion spring is to keep the float from bouncing when the unit is in use. It isn't there to keep the needle seated at rest. At rest the float will seat the needle unless there is damage to the needle or the seat or some dirt holding the needle from seating. So you need a new needle & seat kit or a new float or both. The needle & seat kit require a special tool to remove the old seat & install the new seat.

Thank you for your reply. - I had cleaned out the seat and needle. I used the old wire twistie from the bread wrappers and aerosol carb cleaning (It's to bad that the old 2+2 isn't available). The seat goes all the way up when I apply pressure to the end of the needle. I am a novice compared to the rest of you but I still need to know how to put the necesary tourque on the spring prior to installing it on the hinge pin. As a side bar I've been trying to find better pricing on the torsion spring. I delt with Jacks Small Engines who I local for me. Only a thirty mile drive. But extremely educational and the ride was wild. Two lanes of old country roads that had been modernized. But that is Maryland. I would appreciate any assistance before I travel the 30 miles again. Grandson wants to go this time.

There is no need to adjust the torque or tension of the spring prior to installing, it is ready to install as-made.
