Re-assembling tecumseh carburetor #632641 off of toro ccr1000 snowthrower model 38190. engine 3hp tecumseh model #hsk600 type 1659r. everything is cleaned up and ready to go, but i can't remember how the float shaft spring came off or how to get it back on. i took some notes, but it came off too quickly. 90 degree L shape bend in one end of spring goes on the outside of the float, but i can't remember or figure out where the smaller 90 degree goes. does it just rest against the rim of the bowl housing just inside the gasket? does it provide that little tension? anyone have a photo? the diagrams and drawings on the web are pretty much useless. also, intake baffle/spit cup - cup up or down?

    i figured out which way the spring was supposed to go before i got your answer, both ends belong on the inside, like a little hinge. i knew which way the carb bowl went, i guess i did not describe the other part very well. it's the little u-shaped, half cup on the outside of the air intake port? i just put on so the open part was facing down (take in less dirt that way). she starts, but still runs really rough and stalls. seems like it would run forever on full choke. i will double check carb, maybe pull welch plug, i think there are more needles under there. thank you (maybe it's a vacuum leak?)

Need manual for 3hp craftsman rototiller model # 917.298230 for the carb

What is the manufacturer of the engine? What do you want to do to the carburetor? If it is a Tecumseh engine, there is a website that has the manual for all Tecumseh carburetors for free. I printed it off and made a book about a month ago, about 15 bucks plus shipping if you buy it.

Let me know what it is and what the full model number is on the engine.
