Guys I need help finding a replacment carb for my Bolens 1253. It has a Tecumseh hh120 engine and a Walbro LME 34 carb. The throttle shaft snapped in 2 and it has proven impossible to find a replacement shaft, or carb. Has anyone replaced the LME 34 with another carb, there is very little info online? Any help or suggestions would be great. Thanks Adam

I don't know exactly where the break in the shaft is but sometimes it is simpler to repair something than it is to replace it. Most small iron or brass parts can be brazed or silver soldered then filed or ground down. If you know a heating tech or someone in a metal working shop they would probably be able to repair the shaft if you don't have the tools to do it yourself.


I am assuming that the rest of the carb  is in useable.


Also I'd check at some of the older lawn mower shops in your area sometimes they keep parts when they junk old mowers.


Be patient I'm sure someone will be along here soon with a good solution to your problem.

I will take a look as we have a few dozen of those tractors for parts. We may also have some NOS ones. Just send me a pm about it.
