Small Engines (Lawn Mowers, etc.)/Snowblower Carburetor


Hello. Have used the site before. Very good info.  Mr. Jones , I have a 1993 MTD (Montgomery Ward)3hp 2 cycle snowblower still runs fairly well. But had the carburetor checked and might need a new one due to long use. It has a Tecumseh engine having difficulty finding part number. Its model# 313-180-088. (Tmo-35252)Would appreciate if you knew the part number that fits.

The model number 313-180-088 is an MTD model number, the snowblower manufacturer.  The TMO number is usually a Montgomery Wards number, who may have sold the blower.

To track down the carb part number I need the engine model number.  Most likely the engine is a Tecumseh engine.

To find the engine model number take a look at the link below, page 1:

Let me know the engine model number and I can look up the carb part number.

Born and raised in the midwest. Started tinkering with engines when I was about 14 on my Suzuki RM-80. I began lawn mower repair at a small hardware store. I knew absolutely nothing. I read lots of repair manuals and met an older fellow who taught me many lessons. I continued working on small engines through high school and paid my way through college working on mowers at the same hardware store. Decided to get away from the midwest and mower repair so I joined the Air Force. I repaired air traffic control electronic equipment and ended up in Hawaii where I got a part time job at Small Engine Clinic. I gained a lot of experience from the Small Engine Clinic and had a blast repairing small engines. I then took the Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician test and earned my MST. I then traveled to Wisconsin where I attended the factory update training seminar and received formal training. Continued working on mowers part time as I completed 20 years of military. Retired from the military on a Friday and continued in the lawn and garden industry the next Monday.
