Troy-Bilt 2410 Carburetor Help

Please help. Want to replace carburator on my Troy Bilt 2410 (Model#: 31BS6BN2711.) I bought a carb on Amazon that said to be a replacement but it is not. The original has a long plastic stick that engages the choke switch. Anyone know where I can get this carb or if there is a way I can rig the one I purchased to do the job?

THANKS!!!!

Let's back up a bit and tell us what the issue seems to be with the original carb. How old is the 2410?

Might be a matter of running a high concentration of carb cleaner

Hello and welcome to SBF steve. If the carb appears to be identical to the original one, you may be able to just switch the shafts between the two carbs. I couldn't find what motor you are using to offer a better alternative, sorry.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.

If you do have a small bore engine, these two manuals will help with future repairs.

Thanks for the responses thus far.

So basically, I bought this Storm 2410 from Lowe's a little over a year ago. This is the first gas powered blower I have ever owned so basically, I didn't know very much about using it. I left the gasoline in there all summer without stabilizer. When I tried to turn the blower on following our first snowfall, I primed it and pressed the electric start. It made the typical engine noise; however, it never turned over or started. I looked in some forums that suggest that my problem is the carburetor. Apparently, from what I've read, with the quality of today's gas you can pretty much ruin a carburetor by leaving old gas in the tank for only a month or two.

If running carb cleaner might do the trick, I am willing to do that. Someone also told me that another possibility would be to be the carburetor once removed and a bath of carb cleaner.

Once again, I appreciate any kind of input; and I'm also going to include a link to a website that has the carburetor that replaces the one in my 2410 ( https://mowerpartsnation.com/product...711-carburetor ). Unfortunately, the item is out of stock. As far as just replacing the shaft, that does not seem to be a possibility as it runs right down into the chokeplate and all seems to be one piece.

thanks, and I eagerly await your input.

BTW, here's a link to the carburetor that I actually bought that does not fit the 2410: https://www.partstree.com/parts/troy...ts/951-14026a/
