Not sure from the other posts if you have found the serial number yet, but you may find an exploded diagram here
Just be aware they are Amercian, and i've found with my Clamshell that even the supposedly European 9xxxxx serial numbers don't always match up. Having said that, if you find an exploded pic of your carb, you'll have enough to allow you to reassemble it correctly. Just be aware that ordering jets etc with the wrong part number will trash your air - fuel mix & it'll never run. Best bet is dismantle, clean & rebuild (with new gaskkets). Alsdo I noticed on your other post you said you ran it "hee-e-eavy oil mix". dare I ask how heavy? Remmeber the idle venturis are miniscule - designed to pass mostly fuel, not relativeley thick oil.......
If it's being starved of fuel also check out the fuel pump diaphragm.
As for the tiller, have a crawl up & down the engine sizes - you'd be surprised just how many engine Horsepowers of a similar age will share large parts like a tiller.
