ST824 Carb question

Greetings,

I bought one of the $10 Chinese carburetors from a ebay vendor recommended here for the Tecumseh motor on my 924050, I need to tap the holes for the screws that hold the shroud over the carb, can someone tell me please what thread that is supposed to be?

TIA

The Original Screws will Tap Themselves. Just Screw 'em in.

Thanks, for the input. I think 10/32 ids probably right. If not, oh well, I'll get some screws to fit :-)

I had wondered about that, thanks for the input, something I will remember for the next time.

ST824 Carb question

10/32 a fit a Tecumseh LH318SA-156582H with carb # 640349 (9.25 hp). I just stripped the oem screws off the original carb.

Thread lock on oem carb screws makes it very difficult to get them off. I had to pry mine off with channel locks. Someone needs a beating for this design.

The design was made by people that manufacture Channel Locks, and the person got a big fat bonus ! LOL
