    Model of mower Deere GT245

    Serial number M00245B162099

    Engine number FC420V-F500 FC420VA99489

    Carb part number AM117379



    The tab on the float is broken, a rebuild kit will not fix the problem

    Might want to try taking the carb off and looking for the brand and model number. Walbro's site has schematics with complete breakdowns of parts and rebuild kits, as well as selling the whole carb. Sometimes it's easier to go straight to the manufacturer of the carb instead of the mower.
