In respect to this, how do I identify my Tecumseh carburetor?

The model number (marked with red box in photo) on a Tecumseh engine can be found on the engine ID label, typically located under the engine cover. The label will also include other pertinent Tecumseh engine information such as the specification number and date of manufacture.

Likewise, how do you set up a Tecumseh governor? Loosen the screw at the base of the governor arm with a screwdriver. Rotate the governor arm in the same direction as it moved when the throttle lever was moved to wide open. Hold the governor arm in this position with one hand and tighten the screw at the base of the governor arm with the other hand.

How does a carburetor float needle work?

As the chamber feeds fuel to the carburetor, the fuel level sinks, and the float falls with it. When the float drops below a certain level, it opens a valve allowing fuel into the chamber to refill it from the main gas tank.
