They both work Got the service manual. What is not listed in SM is the adjustment screws on the carb. I see the choke is set 2mm back from the edge on the govenor.

As I mentioned the carb was in really bad condition. I did not remove the nozzle that the main jet screws into so maybe I should try doing that but right now I think that the adjustment screws may be foo bar. Possibly the owners manual (which i don't have) identifies which screw is which and how to adjust. Do you have any idea's?

pulled carb again today and had mower repair shop look at it. Since it is flooding, they say only float will cause this. The float shows no leakage and vacuum gauge shows closing against vacuum so they suggested, since the needle is steel and the seat is not changable, that I use q tip in drill and toothpaste on tip and try to polish the seat to remove varnish build up. At this point I will give it a try. The carb does NOT have a high speed adjustment but does have a low speed adjustment and a idle adjustment. They suggest that the low speed adjustent be started at 2 full turns then turned down in 1/8 increments when running.

butterfly

The butterfly on this carb has a very weak spring and I noticed that the butterfly would snap closed when observed from the side as gravety helped pull the flap closed but when in the mounted position the butterfly did not move to closed. This was missed in the cleaning and the varnish could be heard with a squeek when manually working the flap. After another soaking in carb cleaner and manual manipulation at least 100 times the flap was better but not perfect. I guess 21 years of abuse has taken it's toll and varnish will come off in layers. It is easy to see why some give up and buy a new carb

the best way to clean a carb is the old pine sol trick... soak the disassembled carb in pine sol over night... even better if you place a fish tank air stone in to agitate it... it will eat all varnish. google "pine sol carburetor"

butterfly

I got the butterfly to operate as it should then put the carb on and set the choke to specs. Engine started on first pull in choke and ran for a minute but when I put lever in run engine would run with surging fast then slow. When back in choke engine running without surge I did not try to remove the nozzle but that is the only thing that I can try to do now. I see on the Sears parts list that the nozzle is repaceable. Does it press out or screw out. I see nothing in the SM about this.
