On the Manco, its a 30 series. A 30 series is asymmetrical (different angles on the two faces), while a 20 series is symmetrical (same angle on both faces). And I'd use a briggs 5 horse if you have one to keep the vintage look.

And please tell us what is wrong with the warrior. I own one, and it is much better balanced than a predator. Mine is idled down to around the stock spec of 1500 rpm, whereas I need to idle my predators at around 1700, give or take a little. The only problems that I've had with mine are that the rings were put in wrong, and made the engine smoke.

LOL thats true so i might as well be c&c jr.
also the tc is a 20 series it says it on it. the 196cc will not run right and the carb needs rebuilt, also gas leaks into the oil and leaks gas i was gonna replace it with a 212 but have plans for the 212. i am gonna fix the 196 no matter what. i do want a briggs 5hp but they are too much for me to buy like 150-200$. sorry for the double reply im trying to be a little quicker.

The trick with the leaky float is, turn off the gas and let it idle until it dies. That uses up all the gas in the float bowl. That'll keep gas from leaking into the engine. And can you get a few pics of the driven.
