The parts are available as well as complete carburetors, I checked. Go to and you can order from them. On the site you can see an exploded view of the carb. But if you don't want to put a few bucks in the bike, I would be happy to put it in my garage. :-) Please rate my answer. Thanks.

1978 f250 351m carburator

If you buy a rebuild kit for it, there will be a couple of pages included. One is instructions and specifications, like float height and choke settings, that kind of thing. Another page will have an exploded view of every part or piece, and they are numbered. You follow the numerical sequence when disassembling it . It keeps you from running into trouble. Keep things organized, so you don't get jets or parts mixed up. Use trays with several sections, or little cups, or even a few egg cartons with numbers on each little section. There are a lot of parts- anywhere from about 80 to over 100.
So you get it all apart and clean everything, including all the internal passages in the carb body. People used to use a strong dip available that you could just drop parts into, especially the larger parts that had those passages, and it cleaned them ferociously. I have been told to not even bother with it anymore-environmental regulations have made it rather weak. So just buy one or two cans of carb cleaner and spray everything. Use the little tubes that come with the aerosol cans to hit all the passages.
If you need anymore, you could buy a Haynes or Chilton repair manual for your truck. Lots of information on the carburetors in them. I like the old cars and trucks, still own a carbureted Sentra, but I like fuel injection systems more-nowhere near as many parts to contend with. Good luck.

My 1978 GS 1000 has plenty of power until it reaches 3000-4000 rpms and then falls on its face cleaned the carbs numerous times, would rebuild kits be beneficial and could it be something other than the...

Sounds like a dirty jet inside the carb, You said you have cleaned it numerous times, but did you take it apart to clean the ports and jets? If not go ahead a do a rebuild on it and you should be good.

Non start issuse w/ tacumsen 3.8 mower took it to a shop they diagnosed it as the carb. told me i should jus get another mower . Is it worth repairing money wise...?

Maybe....used carbs can be acquired fairly cheap at places like eBay or you could just try to rebuild the one you now have. 4 stroke carbs are easier to build thans 2-stroke. Find the model # of the carb and get a rebuild kit. They don't make Tecumseh anymore but there are still plenty of parts and kits available to repair them.

Ive been looking on ebay but all i find are 1978 crab kits i have a 1974 . will a 1978 carb kit work ?

Difficult one this ,if the carb numbers are the same, found on the side of the carb then you have a good chance ,but the jet sizes may differ do you have the original carb to transfer the jets.Sorry cant be more help. Pay particular attention to the choke size ,the hole through the middle,this size is usually part of the carb number eg 28.

My 1978 125 will kick off some time and run for a min then die

Dis-assemble the carb and clean it. Clean the air filter and install a new spark plug.

Kawasaki ke 125 runs for about 2 minutes stalls then when kicked over will idle sometimes but not take throttle left for a while will run again for 2 mins

Go to the dealer and ask for the stock plug for your bike. Check for spark on the new plug then install the plug.

Remove the carb , dissemble it and clean the varnish out. Remove the petcock, ( gas valve ),water trap and clean it out. Next let one cup of gas flow into a container. Any water or rust in the bottom of the container? If any rust was in the water trap or the container then purchase an inline fuel filter to eliminate the rust getting into the carb.

If cleaning the carb yourself does not do the trick then take it to the dealer and have them clean it and install a car kit. This should eliminate the carb as a problem. Get a new air filter and install it.

Now you have spark, gas and air. If it still will not start it is likely that you need new crank seals. On a bike that old you may well need new crank bearings as well.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
