I wouldn't bother..a new carb will likely be low-quality made in China, probably worse than the original Tecumseh carb..
and you dont even need the primer, its not necessary.

If its below 25F (-4C) or so, give a squirt of starter fluid right into the carb bowl.
thats what I do with my '71 Ariens, works just fine.

MassSnowblower, have you checked your impeller to housing gap ?? Maybe you would benefit from an impeller mod.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I have not checked the housing for a gap. Maybe the impeller mod would do the trick. That could be the problem, it doesn't throw the distance I need for sure.

I've got mine dismantled for painting today.....paint isn't to bad, but faded and some rust coming through. I used three carbs to make one, first time I've had an idle screw so frozen it broke off in the carb.....running good now. Spent Sunday freeing up the transmission. Everything is working good now, axle bushings are just slightly worn but not enough to rebush. New tubes....now a coat of paint while I have the wheels off. I don't know why I have this disease...I just get such a kick out of saving these old machines. Anyone know what belt size fits this? It looks identical to Jacobsen26's. Model number 52625 serial 6043. Waterlooboy? I'll take pictures Jacobsen 26 once I get her pretty.

I have a 626 mod #58401, 6hp and in my reference it says it uses two JA335453 they are 41" X .5" http://www.jsesc.com/Catalog/Results...ER=%20JA335453

I found this one on ebay http://www.jackssmallengines.com/jac...t/oregon/75441 but it's not giving any dimensions. Might be able to look them up with a search.

In case you need the drive belt down the road - >
52620, 52624, 52625, 52630 - Drive 331325 3/8 x 40 https://www.jsesc.com/Catalog/Product.aspx?cd=ste265496

Belt PN listing with sizes HOMELITE Belt size, length, width for HOMELITE belts by part number.

This is what I found with a little searching. Please double check my research before ordering to make sure it's the right part for YOUR machine !! Might want to check for best price and delivery time from different suppliers. Don't forget to check local big box or hardware stores too.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
