Does anyone know where i can buy a brass float for a 1964 sears custom 600. I've been told they are smaller than a normal brass float and are obsolete. This is the only thing left to do on it ,and it's ready to come out of retirement. I'm in Ontario Canada thanks.:wallbanging: 6hp tecumseh

a 1964 custom 600 would have a tecumseh HH60. You can find a few engine with the same or similar float. I dont think they sell anything new for that engine.

I believe that they used the same type of carburetor on several Tecumseh engines. If you could find the model of the engine, it might be easier to figure out. I did a quick internet search and found that the model # of the tractor should be 917.9951. Then I searched Sears Parts Direct and came up with a Sears part # for the engine, but dead ended there. If you could find the Tecumseh model number (should be an H60, and HH60, an HS60...or something like that, include the spec # which will be a dash something{5 or 6 digits} after the model #) Then we could dive into what carb should be on there through Partstree or a similar site and go from there. Hope to help if I can.

[attachment=9008:9653.attach]Hi caseguy thanks for diggin in on this.I tried brazing the carb and fileing it as best i could and so far so good but i feel its just a temporary fix.I had it out running around having some fun with it, and it sounds great and runs solid.I am still going to get some numbers and see if you can find something for me, if your still ok with that thanks.

I will be up at my Dads sometime this weekend. I have a Custom 6 up there with the same engine I think. If someone jogs my memory on Friday, I will see if there are any numbers on the carb.

Pchili4, please send me a PM if you still need the info.

The only info I could find ( on an old carb ) are the letters LMB raised in the casting. The bowl is a smaller size with certainty.

Good luck with the search.
