Hi I know the feeling. I have spent the lase 3 days messing with stupid little carb. I have a TORO 1990 model year with a TVS100 engine aluminum deck,rear wheel drive bagger. All the things you could want. So I get a needle & seat and some gaskets and tear it apart get some gum cutter and give it a bath. Put it together like it was a mechanical heart. Bolt it back on the engine put some fuel in the tank and notice the primer bulb not working. Loosen the float bowl there is fuel running out. Tighten it down and give it a shot of started fluid it runs for a second and stops , try it again same thing. I can't believe at 66 years old and having rebuilt everything fron flat head Fords to small block Chevy's that this stinking little carb has beat me. And to top things off Tecumseh doesn't make carb # 632149 any more. Fustrated !! DaleT

Well this is the last I will say on this carb, for the last 4 days Ive been trying to get a series 11 carb rebuilt , replaced needle and seat 2 times, tried 8 different floats and bowls, and test out, when added to motor and run its raining gas!! , now with out bowl in a small bowl of water the float holds fine but not with the bowl on , not sure what this problem is but I finaly rebuilt and installed a series 8 and now this little weed whacker from sears lives come on you tech experts show us some lite on this ,is there a tiny bit play in float hing causeing the sticking! would a new plastic float work better or do I just throw this piece of #@$%@ away!!

i have the same problem.i agree these carbs are tricky to work on.it seems no matter how you clean them, or set them there is still problems.

Tecumseh carbs used to be so easy to work on. What happened?
I've got a carb I have rebuilt twice and taken off more times than I have fingers and toes. It will start in low throttle, but if you try to raise the speed the throttle opens all of the way. I have tried everything I can think of to adjust the governor linkage. I can't think of anything that I didn't put back what it was before the first carb removal.

I recall reading about facing the open end of the spring/wire that holds the float valve pin a certain way.It does not seem to matter but try turning it the other way. John aka qlty
