Emission's Carbs

I have a 2 year old 8HP Tecumseh Snow King with the Emissions restricted carb that needs a rebuild. I also have a older rebuilt carb from another 8HP Snow King. Are they be interchanged? Can the "Fixed Needle" bowl screw be replaced with the older adjustable type?

One Snow King to another is interchangable, regardless of fixed or adjustable jet.

The engines we get (sears) in Canada from Tecumseh have different size threads in the jet and are not interchangeable. We must replace the whole carb if we want an adjustable jet.

I believe jp was referring to swapping one carburetor for the other, not individual parts. And carb. for carb. is doable. Individual parts likely will not work out.
