How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
If your car has a distributor, follow the wire that is in the center of the distributor cap to find the igniton coil. Cars with coil packs usually have them mounted near a valve cover. Coil on plug ignition coils are typically placed near or directly over each spark plug.
You can replace a failing ignition coil fairly easily at home, but remember that you`re dealing with high voltages so must disconnect your battery before you start.
You can replace one coil at a time or all at the same time. I would however recommend having all spark plugs replaced with the coils so you do not have to remove coils twice.
Spark Plugs Versus Ignition Coils
Ignition coils transmit voltage to the spark plugs. This, in turn, is what creates the spark for your engine ignition. One leads to the other. One ignition coil will send power to about one or two spark plugs, and vehicles typically have one ignition coil for each engine cylinder.
The ignition coil transforms low voltage from your car battery into high voltage. The spark plug takes the spark created by the coil to ignite the fuel in your engine.
The most common cause of a snowblower without a spark is a fouled spark plug. Cleaning and gapping or replacing the spark plug will fix the problem. Other likely causes of snowblower no spark include: Faulty control switch (on/off switch)
Ignition coil packs are manufactured in such a way that they could last the lifetime of the vehicle, but due to failure in the proper maintenance of your car can cause them to fail earlier. Generally, they fail between 120,000 to 150,000 miles or between 5 to 7 years.
If an ignition coil is not working properly, your engine will likely misfire. A misfiring engine results in a jerking or sputtering feel when you are moving at normal speeds. When you stop, a misfire from a bad ignition coil may cause your vehicle to run roughly, vibrate or shake.
An ignition coil, also known as a spark coil, is an induction coil in your car`s ignition system which transforms the battery`s low voltage into thousands of volts which are needed to create an electric spark in the spark plugs to ignite the fuel.
Your car engine has a coil, which is basically a high-voltage transformer composed of two wire coils. One of the coils is referred to as the primary coil, and the secondary coil wraps around it.

Broken drive cable – Craftsman Snow Blower / Snowblower Bottom Cover :
Your question is , easy to change get a new on for your blower , go on youtube it is prob listed there
Pto not working blades not engaging
You can hotwire the clutch and see if it clicks, rule out the switch or the safety. If you take the wires apart and jump them, with the battery, it should klik, if not, the clutch is shot, time for a new one, If it clicks, then the switch or the safety is bad. All the parts are available online or ebay, or craigslist. The new ones are expensive. Check it out, hope this helps.

Snowblower c950 52361 throttle will not change out of idle
Sounds like snow blower has been sitting since last season. Remove carburetor shield and move throttle linkage at top of carburetor. They some times seize or tighten up from sitting.Spray with WD-40 or something to lubricate.

Try changing the spark plug. You may be having some misfiring going on here. Is your fuel to oil mixture right?
Will not through snow more than 3 feet
Never knew any that would have to do it in stages when it’s too deep .
