This is one of the TSC/Tisco carbs that I had here. I noticed some differences between them.

The full kit didn't fit this carb. The gaskets did. As did the needle and seat.
Shaft seals/retainers and float pin did not. One of the shafts wouldn't fit, but I don't recall which one.

The screws holding the two halves together were smaller than M/S and the brass plugs were a different size.

This one was dead new, out of the box due to a plugged passage.

It worked pretty well once all the obstructions were clear.

But they're $200 new from TSC. I'd prefer to rebuild an original.

I also agree with you on the blanket statements. Always/Never etc.

I was once forced to buy a TSC front mount distributor. It was a Sunday and the only place open and I needed it badly. Upon prepping for assembly onto an 8N, the rotor would not press down onto the shaft completely and thus prevented the cap from seating properly. The shaft was too high and inhibiting the part from fully seating.I ended up cutting the top of shaft off about 1/16" to make it work. That was back in 200 and from then on I never shopped for major parts there again. Maybe the occasional FRAM oil filter and hydraulic oil yeah, but nothing else. i have worked on tractors with TSC carbs and found them to also be a PITA as well. Like the old Tecumseh engines, muck with settings today and come back tomorrow and do them all over again.

I have avoided aftermarket parts like the plague for 15+ years. Far too many bad experiences.

Yep, me too. Same with FASTENAL. Overpriced basic hardware store that NEVER has what I need. Oh, they can order it for you with a an extra service charge, a restocking fee, and a 3 or 4 day wait time. No thanks. I can order a box of 100 bolts -the exact size I need -from McMaster-Carr for the same price Fastenal asks for 1 of their bolts PLUS will be here the NEXT DAY!!!
