HI, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Can you provide the full model, type and dom from the engine so that I can better assist you?

The number that you have provided prior does not seem to be a good model or type number for Tecumseh.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
i am looking right at the model no. and it is right
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 11 months ago.

This is the number that is on the engine itself, right?

Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 11 months ago.

In order to provide the information for the carburetor I will need the model information from the engine not the frame of the machine.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I took this mod. no right off of the engine.
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 11 months ago.

The number that you have provided (157896C) does not show up as being a good model or spec/type number in Tecumseh parts look up.

Unfortunately I won't be able to help you.

I will opt out of your question which will allow one of the other experts here to comment on it if they have anything to add.

Look just under the spark plug housing cover, and see if you don't find another number, I'm guessing it is HM80-155597-R, which uses the 632351 carburetor.

See carburetor link above. Just one source , there are others. THANKS
