I am sorry to say, you have no rose. A few things to checl on Jacobson snow Burst blowers.
1. Check compression, needs a minimum of 90# to start and run right.
2. if compression is low, check for a blown head gasket, they do that quite frequently.
3. Check to make sure the bottom of the crankcase is not full of fuel.
4. Use 32:1 fuel/oil mix in these old Jacobson blowers, it has a Jacobson 2 cycle and they need all the oil they can get.
5. One wya to make it start a little easier if it has good compression and has fresh fuel is to lay the blower down on its back to start it, these have the carb on the very bottom of engine, if everything in these engines are not up to par, you do not have enough vacumn in cylinder to pull fuel up in to crankcase, laying it down gets the carb at least level with engine.
6. lots of luck
