Where to find Carb part for Tecumseh AV520?

3 posts in this topic

I read a couple posts on adjusting the Carb on a Tecumseh AV520 3HP because mine would not run right. Went out to adjust the Low and high speed adjustment screws and noticed that my high-speed adjustment screw is missing. No wonder it doesn't run right! Does anyone know where I could order a new one? Or would most small engine places have one? Not sure if they are fairly universal or not.

Thanks!

That is the model of the engine. There aren't any engine manufactures that make carbs, so when you need a carb part you get the model number and make off the carb.

I think yours would be the Walbro WT-257.

You should be able to get that from a small engine shop or do an on-line search with your carbs make(Walbro) and model(WT-257).

Best bet it to go to Walbro's site and do a look up your carb model. In fact I've done that and your High speed needle is part # 102-3096-1 At that same site you'll find a list of shops to order that part from. Or call a small engine shop and tell them you want part # 102-3096-1 for a Walbro carb.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
