SNOW BLOWERS

Snow blower model numbers are located on the backside of the metal base between the left and right rear-wheels. The 11-character model number is printed on the left side of the Product Identification Label and will begin with the letters “CM”.

I have used 80w 90 gear oil 75 w90 gear oil will work as well basically the same stuff you put in your differentials.
The engine model number is usually a number stamped into metal directly on your engine. It may be stamped onto the left side of the overhead valve cover, the metal shield below the muffler, or the cylinder shield on the side of the engine.
The gearbox in a car works by transferring power from the engine to drive the wheels by employing a set of gears that can be shifted to change the speed and torque. The gears are arranged in different patterns to offer different speeds while maintaining the engine performance.
Inside the transmission, an input shaft is connected with the engine, which turns the shaft; while an output shaft sends its spinning motion toward the vehicle`s wheels to turn them. The input shaft`s power drives a set of gears, called the countershaft gears.

For example, if the Date Code is 5240, the first character, 5, identifies the Year. The last 3 digits identify the sequential day within the year, nnn of 365. So, 5240 gives a build date of the 240th day in 1995 or August 28, 1995.

Will not start – Yard Machines 24" 208cc Two Stage Snow Thrower
ANSWER : If there is an adjusting screw on the carb turn it out a little bit at a time and see if that works before you do anything else. If that don’t work put the screw back where you started.
If that doesn’t work take the plug out and install a new one and while the plug is out put a table spoon of gas in the spark plug hole and reinstall the plug and put the plug wire back on. If the engine starts but stalls after the little bit of gas is used up. Take the bowl off the carb and clean it out as well as clean the fuel jet that is in the bolt that holds the bowl on. Put back together and see if that works. It is quite often dirty gas that is the problem. Especially if its been sitting. Oh yes put fresh gas in it as well.
