Got the float and the cab kit here locally (Roy Boys, Tigard , OR) and some
great advice from the parts counter guy about removing the old jet
and reseating the new one.
First time I ever played with the insides of a carb.
It now runs perfectly.
Thanks to all who helped with the diagnosis and
pointing to the float.
Drained fuel out of the old float for about a half hour.
Sixteen bucks in parts, supported a local merchan, avoided
a $ 75.00 labor bill and leared a new skill.
1) It's a Tecumseh. Looked it up on the sears parts site.
2) Your gas problem sounds a lot like a defective float in the
carb. Part number 632019 which costs six bucks. The floats are
noted for leaking, and then they don't float. And then the gas
