Hello All
I am looking to purchase an aftermarket carb for an old toro 3650 I picked up. eBay offers a bunch of cheap ones is one any better than the rest? OEM carbs are over a hundred and I don't know if the machine is worth the expense

Thanks for the advice. Are the 40 dollar ones better than the 20 dollar ones? This unit has a plastic carb and it leaks

The plastic carb was a problem with the Toro , they actually had a recall at one time because of leaking .
Look those 2 carbs over careful and check the reviews but I'm betting the guy selling the $40 one is just making more money 😋
I ordered one from eBay it is shipping out of New Jersey and it includes free shipping. The vendor had a good rating. The carb also included a new fuel line, filter and gas shutoff all for 20 dollars.

Toss the fuel line, filter and gas shut off in the garbage, they are crap quality and will just cause issues.
Gas shut off will start leaking within a couple of months, ask me how I know:cautious:
Will do. I already put a new fuel line on. Did you have good luck with the carb?

I’ve used those carbs and other Chinese carbs before, fuel line fuel filter and spark plugs are usually all junk, I would recommend you check the gas tank as well many ccr2450 and ccr3650 models have cracked gas tanks and there was a recall for this as well
The gas tank seems to be ok, the gas is leaking from the bottom of the plastic carb. Local small engine guy said I should just replace the float and needle and that should solve the leak

I’ve replaced the plastic carb on 3650 with eBay 20 metal carb no problem. By the way toro put a rubber band on intake manifold to hold nuts in place

A rubber band? Don't want to seem stupid but wouldn't it melt?

I think it costs them more in bad will than the few dollars they saved.
Well I took the plastic carb off cleaned it really good. I put it back on and the blower started up after about 20 primes and ran. I shut it off and let it sit ,sure enough the bottom of the carb got wet with gas. I am going to wait and see how the carb works I ordered from eBay.

If you prime the carb with more than 4 pumps of the primer, you will get gas leaking from the carb, that is normal.

Are you sure the bottom of the carb is not wet from over priming?
I primed it twice and it wouldn't start so I primed it two more times still nothing so I pushed the primer a bunch more and it started. The gas first started leaking after it was off for awhile. I would have thought four primes would have done it but wouldn't start.

Hello All

Well I put my new Chinese carb on and it fired up after about 5 primes, I didn't think that was too bad figuring the air had to get out.

The problem that I noticed even before the carb replacement was that the engine seems to be running at very high RPM's. I read how to adjust it but I don't have a tach to see where I am at

Any suggestions?

Tach/hour meters are cheap and easy to install.

I bought a tach and adjusted the RPM'S seems to be running better.

The governor adjustment tab was bent out quite far but in most pictures it seems to be almost straight.
