Hi guys, im new to the forum,And im having trouble finding a carb kit, none of my local stores have access to parts for these little guys, im in need of a carb or carb kit for a SS12 (unknown year) but it has a tecumseh 12hp engine, I need to rebuild the carb or just replace it, can anyone direct me to any online stores to find this item, the numbers on the engine are 143572012, I also have a ST12 with a very good mowing deck i will be working on soon, it runs and mows but needs a few small things before i sell it.

Hello Welcome to GTT
Most likely you have a walbro WHG or LME/LMH on there, I'll need your carb numbers that are stamped into it to direct you to the proper kit, I should have what your looking for instock

Often you could get the kit (or a replacement carb) going straight thru Walbro instead of thru Tecumseh, the one time I had to replace one of those carbs thru Walbro it cost me like just over 1/2 of what Tecumseh wanted to charge for it. brand new, from the same small engine parts place.

Thanks guys, ill get the numbers from the carb and post them, there is no wear on anything so i think the carb would be alright to rebuild, if it isnt been sitting too long, i did manage to get it to start, It just wouldnt idle or take throttle, i have an interested buyer in the st12 with the deck, whats the price point on them these days? I also have some equipment thats came with the ss that i will sell also, i use to get 100 a piece on it but not sure now. Thanks for all the help so far.

The carb is a LME116 i also need the gasket for the clear plastic bowl on the "filter" will the kit come with it or will it need to be bought separate?
