I have a 17 ovh tecumseh with the fixed jet plastic bowl carb and am having float issues. Does anyone know what other carbs, will fit? I would like something adjustable that I can still use the air filter.I tried a Kohler command carb and nothing would fit, the air filter was in the way of all the linkages.

the plactic tekkys are fairly cheap and easy rebuild.

shut off the gas, flip the bail on the bottom, pull the old one off and throw it in the trash, put the new on on and go.

total time invested ..15 min

total $ invested... usually less than $30

they usually run like new and the shops love them

15 minute fix and charge the customer $125
