Hey Vipermanz. What does the carburetor go on? That may help me figure it out a little.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm. I had found a website that has a lot of Walbro carbs, but I cant remember the name. I'll keep looking for it.

But..... I found a place that sells primer bulbs and carb kits......

www.jackssmallengines.com/primer_bulbs.cfm

And.... www.jackssmallengines.com/carburetor_walbro.cfm
Hope this helps. If not, contact me and I'll keep tryin'.

Nice spark plug Robert! How do you post these graphics.
Can you do one of a Tecumseh exploding?

Vipermanz,
Any luck? Hope you find your parts.

Fish,
He he. I wish I could get one of a Tecumseh exploding!! If you want a plug like mine, right click it and save it to your computer, then go to edit options, then click change avatar, then click browse, then find the file name, then click OK, or apply. And there you go!!

actually i've had some luck without a primer bulb, i got it running long enough off of starter fluid and it now can run off gas, after running it 2 minutes the carb fell off!, i didn't get long enough screws!, the screws are 3/16''x3'', home depot doesn't have them in machine screws, any other screw ideas?

I'm not sure about screws. I haven't had a prob. like that before. One day we were using a water pump with an old B&S 5Hp, and the carb just broke off of the side of the engine!! The bolts were fine, but it had cracked somehow and fell off. I keep trying to help out with the screw problem.
