 First time into a small Tec carb. Engine is for the Mini I got. I had it firing today on starter fluid and revved some till used up. Looks promising. The carb on it was pouring out gas and not so good looking. I tore it down now and is plenty gunked up and found the main jet on bottom of bowl was broken off in the big nut there. That is part that is worrying me the most to find. Not sure what comes in the kits. Can this Tec stuff still be found? 

 

  Engine......H35-45509M

   Serial      7339B

 

On carb is   99  7L10   stamped on body. 

 

What numbers do I need to get a kit?  What brand is the carb?

I redid the carb on a H35 2 years ago. It was on a Troy Bilt Junior tiller. It was in pretty bad shape.  It runs pretty good now. I remember seeing replacement carbs on ebay for something like 30$. You might want to consider going that route. Check the throttle and governor linkages. Wear on the governor parts can cause problems on those engines. I looked up the engine numbers to find the correct carb kit for it.

GL, I would check with several of the site sponsors. I would be surprised if at least one of them doesn't have access to what you need.

I believe you want Tecumseh # 31840 carb kit.

 

Everything you need should be in this kit.

 

They are available through Amazon, or maybe one of the site sponsors stocks them.

Bruce, sure looks like the parts I have, thanks!  Maybe I'll try Amazon or ebay.  Gonna check with my local shop guy today first.  This picture shows the main jet and the holder/nut for it, which I needed for sure, good!

Got the kit today from local shop and a mount gasket. All back together and engine runs real nice now! Glad it was that easy. Just a note on the packaging for Tec parts.  Many know of the Tec Company going under last few years. Was told a group in Janesville, WI bought it and moving business there. Well, the package does say TecumsehPower with new Logo, and address is Certified Parts Corp.  Janesville, WI.   And Made in USA on the gasket at least. Cool! So guess story is correct on the group, but haven't heard of just for parts or trying to make engines too??  I was told they are also selling a Chinese Honda clone with diff name, not Tec. Shop guy told me that one. He thinks they are working on a 2-stroke for the little snow blowers like they used to make, that will pass the new emissions standards.  Would think they would be working on a 4-stroke, not 2!
