I have a white Snow Boss with a Tecumseh Hsk600 or Hsk 840

Resolved Question:

I have a white Snow Boss with a Tecumseh Hsk600 or Hsk 840 engine. Gasoline is leaking profusely from the Carburetor. The leak appears to be from where the Carb bowl meets the Carb. Is there supposed to be a gasket at that union? If not, do you have any ideas on why i have the Carb leak and what I can do about it?

There are several different carbs used and the 6 and 8.5 hp sometimes have different carbs. I don't want to give you incorrect information. Thanks

No its at the shop and I'm at home

Customer :

Diesel, here is the engine # XXXXX 1627S (D) 4179H. I now know that there is a gasket where the Carb and Carb Bowl meet because I pulled it off yesterday. Any idea of the part # XXXXX where I can purchase it?

Dieseljunky2 :

Yes, here is a link to the website that you can get all the parts you need. The second link is to the repair manual. Thanks and don't forget to click the accept button so I can get credit for assisting you.
