Got the engine rebuilt and everything put back together, wouldn't start. Found the float collapsed so I bought a kit and new float. When I go to put everything back together I find out that the threads that screw the power needle into the carb body are stripped. I guess that explains why some DPO had rtv as the bowl gasket. So now I'm looking for a different carb. It's a walbro LME 34. Anyone got one laying around or have an idea on how to fix the threads?

Tecumseh HH120 engines. As far as I can tell they were used on Bolens, MF, Craftsman, and possibly JD.

If you are still looking, I got a Techumseh carb. It is a Walbro LME 42. It looks the same as the 34 but I don't know if its a little different. Let me know if you're interested.
