    K181 Carb on Tecumseh HH120

    Posted by Thomas Hohenwarter on Jan 3rd 2021

    After screwing around with old Walbro carbs for my Tecumseh hh120, finally decided to try going for this carb since I had seen it would bolt up and work, and sure enough, it did! Once I set the governor for this carb, the engine fired up on the first crank, can't beat it

    Installed on my Troy Bilt Horse tiller with Magnum 8 & it runs great. I gave it 4 stars because i Had to drill & tap one of the air cleaner mounting holes just as some others have mentioned. And contrary to what the instruction sheet says under important specs the air cleaner mounting screws are NOT 10-32, they are 8-32. The instructions should be corrected so someone doesn't mistakenly drill/tap the wrong size. Better yet the manufacturer should make sure these holes are all tapped before leaving the plant.

    One of the screw holes for the air cleaner had to be drilled and tapped.

    Carburetor K181

    Posted by Ethan on Aug 7th 2020

    Ran like a champ out of the box. I didn’t try adjusting it for fear of making it run worse. I had to widen the catchment hole for the governor cable/wire, and the port side slotted bolt cannot be tightened with a screw driver, but other than that it installed easily. Very happy. Please do not publish reviewer info.

    installed and works fine but does not fix the problem with the engine shutting off after about one hour of use. It just shuts down and is running very hot. After cooling off it will start and run again.

    works perfectly... mixture screw works as it should...quality seems good... I bought the same carb from Amazon and it was complete junk...motor barely ran and it leaked like a sieve from float bowl...this one was very good thanks!

    Replacement for 83 Troy-Bilt Horse PTO. Had to drill and tap the 2 lower holes for the Air Filter backing plate, seems a miss by the manufacturer as smaller holes were in the righ place. Tiller ran well after a few adjustments per the enclosed instructions. Buy with confidence and support the Maine economy.
