This will work just fine. I've been looking for 1 1/2 yrs. for one. a couple of adj. and it put new life back into this old engine. thanks.
Matched the engine. Once i got it primed i had no problems. My tillers running great
The fuel inlet hole was not taped deep enough to take a fitting. I corrected those two items and it started right up and ran perfect. Thank you
Thank's Norman, you the man!
The carburetor was awesome! I purchased this as a replacement for the original Wheel Horse M8 carb. I was supposed to be able to change over the choke assembly shaft but not so. The manufacturer peened the opposite side of the screws on the butterfly so the screws snapped when we attempted removal. So, after a little cutting and grinding we got the new one to work, albeit backwards but it works.
Fit the engine as expected. This was on an old Troy-bilt Horse tiller. It has a large round air filter and the choke lever design would not allow the filter housing back to seat on the carb, and all the holes for filter housing retention were not tapped out. Also the 1/8" NPT threads would not accept the fuel intake fitting. Solutions: I retapped/cleaned up the 1"8 NPT threads, and this solved the intake fitting issue. I also tapped threads on the remaining two holes that were needed for the filter housing to screw on. I contacted Isavetractors via their email contact page regarding the possibility of there being a different choke lever style available. They did not respond. Solution: I removed the choke lever from the old carb. The screw holes were a little off, so I modifed the openings a slight amount to get them to fit. I then installed the carb, and fired off first attempt. A little tweaking of the carb upon actual use has made the effort worthwhile considering I could not find another carb to fit my engine. 4 stars because of all the mods needed and no response to my question from vendor.
Arrived and looks great. Haven't yet installed it but should work just fine. Thanks.
Dispite of minor additional work needed to make this carburetor work well for my kohler rotor tiller K161T model is well worth the time and money paid for. Thank you for your service!
This is one of the best aftermarket products I've ever purchased. Only had to enlarge one of the governor rod holes in the throttle shaft lever to mount it. Engine started right up and ran excellent. It would be nice to have a mounting gasket included with the carb. The only problem I encountered was in mounting the air cleaner base. The left lower mounting hole was not tapped. I don't think the hole is even the right size for the proper tap. I just used a self tapping screw, not a big deal. I would definitely recommend these products for others to buy. (carb was installed on a K181)
