After reading some of those threads, I thought to look up the part number on the carb in google and I got two legit sites from it. Oregon Cutting Systems Group and psep.biz...both of which have no good customer service phone number listed, so I sent them both an email asking if they carry the part....I'm still looking forward to what ideas others have though...

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem finding the fitting. I looked up the carburetor for your tiller. That fitting is part of the carburetor. The new carburetor has a new style fitting attached to it. The image you posted is the correct part. You have to replace the whole carburetor. The fitting is not available separately.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Well, I ordered the carb from Parts Direct and it came with no fitting. The picture you also posted shows no fitting. If the fitting is, in fact, part of the carb, where would this happen in real life?

I know where the fuel line is supposed to connect, that's not the problem. the problem is actually getting the piece that fits over that piece and into the fuel line.

Unless you have some sort of other idea of how to connect the fuel line directly to the carb without that piece.....I'm on here because Parts Direct and Sears have both failed in helping me get this part and this is their last idea for help. I either need to acquire the part or somebody needs to tell me of another way to connect the two pieces.

A:

The fuel line pushes onto the fitting of the new carburetor. You do not need any other connector. The image below shows how the line fits. If the fuel line will not push onto the fitting, you can try to opening the end of the line by pushing a philips screwdriver into it.

I am glad you were able to decipher what I was trying to say. I know it can be confusing when the manufacture changes a part. In this case, they changed it for the better. The new fitting is metal and should not break like the old one. I thank you for using Manage my life. Please keep us in mind next time you have any problems around the house. Mark
