snapper 4220

I have a snapper 4220 snow thrower that needs a new carb. Does anyone know what type of carb is on it? It has a 4hp tecumseh engine with a seperate priming bulb mounted on the engine.It sort of looks like a series 1 carb,but all the other pictures I've viewed on other sites show the priming bulb mounted on the carb. Please help..

All I can find is a metal tag by the oil fill that has the following #-SBH-445A under that is another #-5347F. Hope that helps...

Geogrubb, I ran some tests on the carb and the throttlebody is cracked(probably from water freezing inside-it sat unused for about 15 yrs) Also,the emulsion tube inside is frozen. I've been told that requires complete replacement. I found out today that it is a hssk40 carb and found one on ebay for 50 bucks-thanks for your help anyway..peace.

Here are a couple of links for you to check out. You also will need to know at least what the HP of your engine is:

Page 16 of this manual lists the different engines for your model snowblower which the model number is I4220.

Once you find out which engine you have, then This Manual should cover it.
