    I took apart my carburetor to clean everything out. Putting it back together, I noticed this on the towel I laid everything out on. I don't remember taking this piece out or pulling it out from anywhere. Yet, there it is. Where does it go?

    It's called the main nozzle. See picture #12 in the pinned thread above: TK carb pictures and part identification. It's critical to proper functioning of the carb. Unfortunately, I can't remember which way is up, and the pic isn't detailed enough. I THINK it goes in with the longer side down into the main jet holder.

    The longer end is convex... Rounded outward. It mates with the concave end of the main jet holder.



    The carb will not operate properly without that piece in place.
