tecumseh carb #632351 rebuild

greetings. i have just finished a complete rebuild on the listed carbureator on my Colman generator. problem is that the new float will not adjust down to the 11/64 drill bit spacer on the carb rim. i have just about flattened the trim tab. just how critical is this gap? i don't want to reinstall the carb and then have to remove the whole thing again. thanks for the help.

After market parts or OEM parts? Are you sure that you removed the old seat?

thanks for the quick response aj. the carb rebuild kit is TecumsehPower kit #632760B. the new float kit is 632019A. yes the old seat was removed as were the welch plugs during this complete clean/rebuild. The new seat is identical and installed correctly (ridge/groove side away from needle with a drop of oil to ease installation. i seated it all the way with a 5/32" flat punch. i did this twice when things did not appear to be correct. The old float was not that low either but was prob one of the reason the gunked up carb was not running right. the old float reinstalled did not fall that that low either. this carb is a Series 3 Tecumseh with 1071H3Z stamped in the body.

now for the embarassing moment...after reading ur thread i again removed the needle seat (with frustrated gusto) and 2 seats came out! new new clean one and the old black nasty one that must have been cemented in with gunk. Then i saw the big light at the end of the shaft! the old worn seat let enough light thru that it appeared clear to this Rookie (mistake by a rookie rebuilder). Started on 3rd pull and after a quick adjustment my $40 garage sale Coleman 4000 watt generator is purring along and working nicely. Now for my next project, more lighting in my garage over the workbench!! Thanks again for the help. you nailed the problem. God bless you and yours!
