Tecumseh HSMK 80 Carb Cover?

I was given a Troy built snow bower with a Tecumseh 8hp snow king engine (HMSK80-155497S). The guy took the cover off of the carberator and lost it while attempting to get it running. I bought a replacement cover and my problem is that the scew holes line up but there is a threaded rod that comes out from where the flapper is in the carberator and the cover has no hole for it. It would line up just under where the choke adjustment knob is. I cant find any diagram that has that threaded rod on the carb.

Also do I need do get the parts(knob and rod) for the whole in the cover for the choke adjustment or jsut cover that whole up. I had a local guy that tinkers with engines on the side go over it and he got it running and told me to get the cover on it. I just got the cover yesterday and havent tried to start it, so I cant remember if I need the choke knob or not with the cover on. Thanks.

Thanks for the link Indy.

I already have that diagram. I did order the choke parts. I still cannot find a pic or diagram with the threaded rod on it.

After looking at the diagram again, the rod would be coming out of the carb at about where the bracket number 183 is in the diagram. The only thin I can think of is that the old cover had a hole for it and a wing nut went on it. The part number for 183 has changed if you look at the actual TE number associated with, so maybe the 183 is the new bracket stile that replaces the threaded rod? Does that sound possible?

That threaded rod was on older engines. They called it a "primer", which was only just a double choke. You have an actual primer and do not need the extra part you are talking about. Just 2 shots with the primer, full choke, full throttle and she should start right up!!
