TSX-33 Carb rebuild question

I just finished rebuilding a TSX-33 carb. The rebuild instructions posted by Don Stewart were a big help. Although they are for a newer model carb than the one I have.

The only problem is I have 1 left over part. The rebuild kit containes a white, felt, packing/washer that is about 5/16" diameter, 1/8" thick, with a 1/8" hole in its center. I don't remember removing that type of packing/washer from the carb; and I can't figure out where it should go. Can anyone tell me where the item should be installed?

Thanks for the help,

Thanks to all who helped with the question of what to do with the felt washer/packing. I got a very detailed answer from where I purchased the rebuild kit. It would have been nice if the instructions in the kit were this detailed.

The choke shaft seal is a felt washer that appears smaller than the shaft. It is installed on the choke shaft by first installing the return spring, next the retainer cup and sliding the felt seal on last. Slide the assembly into the carb. Press the felt in place folowed by the retainer (open end facing inward).
The larger rubber seal is for the throttle shaft and should be installed with the ridges pointing outward.

You do not want to put a felt on the throttle and choke shaft as that will let air through, those should be a rubber seal, it may go on the main adjusting needle to keep dust out, where did you get that repair kit at?

Every rebuild kit I've seen includes the felt packing for the choke shaft and neoprene for the throttle shaft. If the brass retainer is used on both it seals tightly.

Peter........that is eather your throttle shaft seal or your choke shaft seal. Your carb needs its seals. Check carefully, the old one could still be there or longtime gone.........Dell

The throttle and choke shafts were my firsts guesses, too. But the 1/8" hole seemed to be too small for the shafts. I didn't want to rip it apart trying to get it over the shaft.

I did a good cleaning of the carb bodies then sent them to a garage for soaking and blowing. There is no old packing in any of the holes.

Felt packing is for the choke shaft. It is held in place by a small brass retainer cup, kinda hard to see. Carefully pry it out of the carb body or order a new one. ($.75) Put a drop of oil on the felt and it will slide over the choke shaft. Good luck.
