Tillotson MD-17A Alternative

The copper carburetor float on my 1940s Hornet 2 man  saw is cracked and beyond repair.


Any idea where I could find a replacement float or what diaphragm carburetor would work with this saw?

I've searched the net and found nothing.

Hi Ron, Welcome. I have no idea of an alternative Carb that will fit. Your Carb should(?) look like the one in this -LINK- 

You could check out the Home page of the Link and search it for answers and/or join their Forum to see if anyone can help you with an alternative.

Can you give me an idea of the Outer diameter, Height and Centre hole dia of the Float, as it is possible one could be made.
