632378a carb needed
I need to replace my carb on my Toro 3521 snow blower, the part number on the carb is 825 5J18 I could not any info on this number. I did however track down this part number 632378a that goes with my Engine model which is TECUMSEH MODEL H35-45598R Ser 5266B. Anyone have a used working carb out there that will fit this engine.. The new ones are close to 100 bucks yikes..

see if the carb from the toro 421 or 521 will work for you. last year i had to buy two carbs for my toro ccr 2000's ( one for each unit ) at $89 each

If it comes down to having to spend $100 for a carb you can see about switching the engine to a Honda clone. People have had good luck with the Harbor Freight ones and they go for $90 - $120 depending on sales and coupons. I put a 6.5HP Greyhound on a 3521 and someone else put one on a 521 and we both had good success. The new Predator engines are pretty similar to the older Greyhounds.

That is an outragous price for a carb. If the one on the blower is a single shaft motor, I think Shryp's suggestion of switching it out makes alot of sense. You may have a little modding to do but you'll have a whole engine for the price of a carb.

Yes 100 bucks is way over priced for a carb. Especially when all other carbs seem to go for anywhere from $20-50. I did come across this carb

I have found that if you buy a direct, no mess bolt on carb they are easily in that price range. If you buy a "service" replacement, they should be around $40. On the service carbs you have to swap some parts from the old onto the new, like the choke shaft and plate for example.

found a replacement carb on amazon for 30 bucks.. Not exactly the same part, but it should work. The choke linkage was the only thing different.. I'll figure out a way to make that work though. Heck it is better than what I had.. No choke lever the plastic piece broke off long ago. I had to use a screw driver to adjust it.. Kinda a pain when it is cold out ;>)

sorry ariff, just noticed the message box. send me the item number of the carb from amazon. I will check your older post for the carb number in regards to the choke and check what i have tomorrow. I have to check a trans part for cavemanperiod motomower
