Snapper and Simplicity snowblowers are the same, just different paint and decals. They both use Briggs & Stratton motors. Both are quality brands.

Summerwinds,  They came with 2 different carbs.  One was the cheapo black plastic version, then they upgraded to a metal one. The plastic carb can be found, but they leak eventually (or even new).  What's the prob with your current carb?  I actually don't even have one of these machines (yet), but have been looking to get one for a year, so I've done some research.  I've learned that leaking when left to store is one major complaint.  If it runs well otherwise, you can cheat the system a bit by installing a fuel shutoff inline. 


The Toro was given to me by a friend. It's about 5 years old and was lightly used but not well maintained. Last fall I replaced the auger belt, fuel lines, fuel filter and spark plug, cleaned and lubricated it thoroughly and repainted the bucket interior and side panels. It runs reasonably well but surges and does not idle smoothly. Plus, it is incredibly loud. I understand the Toro's are notorious for noise and oily exhaust odors. But I think I can do better by replacing the carb and perhaps the muffler.

I remember that Carter manufactured an automobile carburetor in the 1970's called the "Thermoquad." The concept was the same...plastic bowls would keep the fuel cool for better performance. The Thermoquad was a piece of junk and was prone to vacuum leaks, fuel leaks and warpage. Sounds like a similar issue with the Toro. I will take the Toro apart in the spring and inspect the carb. If it is equipped with the plastic carb as you suggested I will replace it with a metal carb. Thanks for the good advice.
Toro CCR 3650 Carburetor Replacement

Has anyone replaced a carburetor on a Toro CCR 3650 single stage snowblower? If so, is this a complicated procedure? What should I expect to pay for a new or rebuilt carburetor?

Thanks for your advice!

This is outstanding, a real tribute to your mechanical ingenuity and fabrication skills! A true hot rod snowblower!
