Most snow blower manufacturers recommends changing the spark plug at least once a year, preferably before the onset of winter and the busiest snow clearing season.

To determine the proper plug gap for your particular snowblower engine, read the users manual that came with your machine when you bought it.

Even if you have misplaced or lost your manual, you can still get the right spark plug (and other parts) for your snowblower. Visit this excellent outdoor power equipment website for snowblower parts, repair help, informational videos and more.

To change the spark plug on your show-blower engine, pull the wire off the old spark plug, unscrew the plug with the socket wrench, then turn the wrench to the left and detach the plug.

Using a gaping tool, set the gap on the new spark plug to the measurement recommended for your particular engine. Models vary on different snow blower types and manufacturers so make sure to check your engine for specifics. For many small Briggs & Stratton engines a common plug gap is 0.03 inches.

After you have inserted the threaded end of the new spark plug into the socket on top of the snowblower engine and tightened it with the wrench, connect the engine wire to the tip of the new plug.

Your snowblower is ready to go!
