  • It is a replica of the Carter #16 Carburetor and has a .810” Throttle Bore. 

Our carburetor is fully adjustable, re-buildable, and feature brass floats.

This carburetor comes with 2 choke levers. The choke installed is for the K Series engines, and the inlcuded one is for the Kohler Magnum M8 engine. Installation instructions included.

    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.

    This carb is working great for me! It has given new life to a 1990’s BCS rototiller. So glad that I came across your website. Thanks so much!

    Runs at its best in years

    Just a note to tell you that the Carb I purchased from you or my old 30 + year old Troy Bilt has made it run the best it has ran in years. Usually starts on first pull. I'm sorry I did not leave you any feedback as I had some other issues with the fuel pump also. Thanks again carrying parts for these old Kohlers like myself

    Runs perfectly out of the box

    Posted by Dave on May 11th 2020

    This is a great product but it did need some minor tweaks to work on the 8hp Koehler M8T engine. The choke plate swap was easy and done in 2 minutes. The throttle cable on my machine has a plastic retainer that needed a larger hole on the linkage which was another minute to drill. The two lower holes on the air cleaner plate are not tapped for my air cleaner. I ordered an 8/32 tap and will take care of that. Overall, the M8T runs like new and I’m happy with the carb. Thanks! I took pictures of you want me to post them.

    Was a perfect fit for my 1979 TroyBilt 7hp rototiller. The gaskets were great. After being shut down for 6 years it is back in action.

    After a few adjustments I finally got my older magnum 8 going again. It truly saved my tractor.

    Changing choke was a mite tedious, but possible.
