Help with carb rebuild, where does this go?

Recommended Posts

I'm rebuilding the carb on an 11hp Briggs, and don't know where this little round rubber grommet type is supposed to go. I can't find this part in the old parts that I removed. Is it supposed to go somewhere?

Above is the carb, with the little part towards the bottom right.

Above are the parts removed, with the little rubber piece shown in the only place it seems to me it will fit.

Another pic of where it seems it would go. Does it go here? If so, does it get pushed all the way to the bottom of the tube? Is it used at all? Thanks!

If one of the sides has a groove on it, that is the seat for the needle valve. You should have one of those in the needle valve hole or a brass adaptor, depending which needle valve you are using. It should be on instruction sheet that comes with Briggs carb rebuild kit.

Thanks Bob (BLT). The only instructions that came with the kit were for setting for float. One side of the grommet does have a groove, and the bottom of the bore for the needle valve is just flat bottomed in the aluminum. Does it matter if the groove in the grommet goes in face up or down? Thanks!

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
