Need a carb for this machine

But can't find a model number placard, or even what brand the motor is. This isn't the machine, but it's identical in every way.

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

Does it have electric start and if so have you removed the two screws holding the start button to the top of the engine and looked under it ??

Looks like a Craftsman 536.882600. 7 HP Tecumseh motor, same whether it's got an electric starter or not. Just match up the linkage between the one you have and whatever you get. I've bought Oregon carbs off EBay before for this type motor (Get the one with the adjustable main jet) and they've worked perfectly. In fact that photo looks like one I bought as a parts machine.

Thanks all for the feedback. No electric start, but sticker near recoil says it's set up for electric start (which my neighbor does want to add- that'll be the next thing I'm pursuing on this machine). I'm almost positive that model info sticker isn't anywhere to be found on his machine.

Having electric start or not doesn't change anything it's just that sometimes the numbers are stamped into the flywheel housing and they end up being underneath the plastic push button of the starter.

You might have had a sticker on an old engine 60s-70's or it's stamped on something a bit newer. If it's under that switch it's real easy to not find it unless someone points it out to you or you've done a lot of research.

That's the problem. It's never been in just one place.

The model number on the motor should be stamped on the top of the flywheel cover if the motor is the same era as the blower chassis. Virtually all 7-10 HP Tecumseh starters interchange as long as they're 4 bolt and the cord between the starter and the button are long enough. I've found a couple were shorter and made a mount that bolted onto the mount for the gas tank to have a place for the starter button.

Some have slotted holes on the top pair of holes and require shoulder bolts while others have conventional holes. Both work as long as you have the right bolts for them.

Its a Tecumseh engine
To make things easier pull that carb and spray carb cleaner near the base by the butterfly or right where it bolts to the intake the carb numbers you need will be right on there and I can help you select the correct one. I think I know the one you need but would like some numbers to confirm.

In the photo just to the left of the carbs throat is a nipple that's used for the primer bulb. Does your engine have a primer and was it connected to that nipple ??
For that matter is that a nipple ?? Hard to tell in the photo.

I don't see that it was asked. Why do you want to replace the carb ??

The part hanging off the front of the carb looks like an old style primer. If it is there is supposed to be a spring loaded plate that closes off the front of the carb so you can pull the engine over, ignition off and let it suck in some fuel before turning the ignition on and trying to start.

Is the hard starting why you want to replace the carb ??
