Replacement carbs on eBay

I must say when you can't get a Eng to run correctly after multiple cleanings and a kit, the Chinese carbs are great for $15. I bought 2 so far, bolt on and go.

I've used a few with good results, Some are not quit the same quality but in reality the OEM ore also Chinese made just like the eBay ones.

I see no quality issues, except for the holes that aren't threaded for the bracket to hold the heat shield

No real issues on them that I have seen, just not as nice of a finish on some of them, Then again I got one that looked better than the OEM LOL but I'll keep using them as long as I need one

Anyone know what would cause gas to leak out of the intake hole on an older Tecumseh carb. Assume the needle is seating correctly it has a new kit in it. But gas still leaks out

I wasn't too impressed. I got mine off of amazon, holes didn't line up quit right, new carb was in metric so I had to buy new screws for it, the needles were made of cheap soft metal. I took the engine in for some work, and included the new carb, and he stuck the old B&S carb back on.

That's my biggest pet peeve as well. I have to use small self tapping screws. Otherwise every carb I've gotten has been awesome!

A few years ago I bought 1 for a 2002 single stage MTD (my spare unit), with Tecumseh HSK50 Snow King engine. I use Sta-bil in the gasoline. In the early autumn of 2015, it had been on 1-2 years, and would not start when I wanted to run it to warm the oil for an oil change. When I removed the bowl, there were metal particles in the bowl, and the inner side of the bowl felt rough. i just cleaned out the junk and it was fine. I cleaned the bowl again this year (some junk in there). I am not really complaining, considering the price, but if someone was not comfortable removing the bowl, this would be a show-stopper.
I have not tried yet - if I can find an old Tecumseh carb, see if the Tec bowl would be a perfect fit (what are the chances of that?)
