re Cub Cadet 524 info needed

Hello All:

Was just over at a neighbors and helped him clear his drive as his Cub Cadet will run but not well and only if fully choked.

This is obviously a carb problem but I am not familiar with Cubbies.

That said, it still has a 5.5 HP Tecumseh Snow King engine but I was unable to find the model or SN for the engine in the usual places.

Only number I found was on the frame: 317-550-100/H186B

Other thing is that the carb does not look like the Walbros I have seen on most Ariens.

It was cold and dark and snowing hard; I'll go over tomorrow and pull off the carb but would like a little more info on this machine if anyone has it.

He's a nice guy and we both have Bernese Mountain dogs who sit in the snow and look at it flying like a retriever watches a tennis match. Guess you have to be there.

I don't know if there are different models of Cub Cadets or not but my neighbor has one as well and it's equipped with a Kohler engine. The engine sizewise is about the same as a 16HP Techumseh. I've heard that there is a 12HP Kohler on some Cub Cadets.
