I still can't find the motor model number and I need to order points and get a actual carb kit not a cheapie off of ebay. 

 

Anybody know the model number for the motor ?

Sorry I'm not a Sears expert, and I'm sure there are some here, however, have you tried looking up the serial number on the tractor itself??

Alot of times shops can get you parts from this info. If not, engine make helps, but not always, and pictures are the best. If you take lots of pictures, chances are a small engine shop will know what you have IF no numbers are present. My advice to you is clean the crap out of it!
For one, it looks better.
Two, it'll last longer.
Three, you might find some numbers?
Four, you will be happy you did.
Five, did I mention it'll last longer? These engines use air, and oil to cool. I am also aware the old HH engines were built heavy like Kohlers, but even the slightest oil, dirt, TOO MUCH (bling) paint, running lean, wrong timing, bad gas, bad head gasket, WILL make for a shorter life. I could roll out a list arm length long!

PS, a year on the tractor helps too!:)

The carb has been cleaned and a cheap kit for ebay but me or my uncle couldn't get it adjusted it runs and I been using it but it not right and if I put it above half throttle it starts smoke black smoke.

After a lil diggin, engine might be a Briggs???

Pictures here will help, and that is a dang good engine as well! I have never messed with a 15 Briggs, but I'd be a betting man that alot of the parts are the same as a 16!

I personally would start with a compression test to be sure the internals are good. If it passes that, the rest is Cake!!!!:)

Did you check the throttle shaft?

These are prone to wobble out. It's impossible to dial in a worn our carby!!!!!!!
The vacuum leak(s) around the throttle shaft will drive you to pull hair.

Also, double check float height, but, I bet it's throttle shaft.

First of all, if you don't know the model, you can't just toss parts in it!!!!

Even though something may look the same, chances it isn't. Unless you won the lottery????

If you do have the correct kit in? It may just need to be learned up on the high-speed screw ( clockwise) @ wide open throttle with engine HOT. Cheers:)
