Tecumseh carburetor float spring issue


There is a spring on the carb, which is just for a float. This float pin always run over it & tries to keeps a float from bouncing. Someone please help to locate a float spring. Moreover, how this spring connects the carburetor. I have tried a lot but no progress. Please share your suggestions



Hello Bill, this pin is called a needle controller. It has to move freely. Likewise, a spring should attached the needle controller to the float. Once the carb bowl is chockfull, a float pushes the needle controller up for shutting off the gas supply, which is flowing directly into it. Or else, it will continue dumping fuel into it up until it overspills. You can locate it only with the help of a carb engineer.
