Old Tecumseh carbs

I've come across a few engines that for what ever reason never seem to run as well as they used to after I put a new carb on with the dreaded fixed jets and I know a little tweak would fix it, I need a carb for another project and came across carbs for the tecumseh engines that actually have both needles to adjust, well there $20 instead of the $15 I usually spend but well worth it if you know how to tune them to get your engine to run at its best, So I figured I just post it here for anyone who wants one with the needles. I got the one for the 5hp but they make them for the larger engines also.

The one I ordered
Adjustable CARBURETOR Carb For TECUMSEH 5HP MTD 640084B 640084A SNOWBLOWER 683405582311 | eBay

I just ordered the same one from this guy and it appears to be a quality product. I haven't had a chance to install it yet so I can't speak for how it works yet but from the reviews I'm not to worried about it. From the reviews it comes already adjusted.

Shipping is fast to, I ordered it on a Sunday and it was delivered the following Wednesday.

those work just fine. I have been ordering extras from China for awhile now - can't beat it for the price.




I am deathly allergic to shovels!

You could save half of that price if you had ordered it direct from China with free shipping

Very true but direct from china usually takes a bit longer, I needed it earlier, but I've seen them for as low as $12

I have a eBay aftermarket carb thread up also. I like the eBay $15ish carbs, OEM quality, adjustable needles. I search USA only in eBay search and I have it in 3-4 days
