Plastic fuel inlet on 2 cycle carb:

 I have an old Sears 50cc tiller with a TecumsehTC300-3187F engine (sears #143961672). The carb is a 632941B DIV71/143. The fuel inlet is a plastic cap sitting on a metal nipple with grooves in the base for the cap to grab onto it. My cap broke in 2 and now I can't get the fuel to the carb. Anyone have a old junker with an intact inlet? Failing that, any suggestions? The carb is no longer being sold.

    Is it one of the white ish square pieces that has a nipple on the fuel line side and a hole on the carb side? You might be able to take the hose and put it directly on the carb nipple with a hose clamp. Not a regular mower line clamp but am automotive one that you can take a screwdriver and adjust.

    I considered that but the nub was so little there was not much of a grip to be had.
    I ended up reusing the plastic piece. I dremeled out the nipple and reattached the hose, put the spring clamp on the end and then used my InstaClamp wire twisting tool to fashion a sort of harness that keeps the 2 pieces together. Seems to work,,,we'll see!
