I rebuilt the carb, the parts in the kit were making the float stick, gas pouring out and it stalling. The diameter of the pivot pin for the float was to large. Not allowing the float to float freely, I was looking up new ones (2 piece large flowjet) the brand new ones have a superseded number (691797). The old one #391070 is not available. Has any one had to purchase a new one, and what was your experience ? I am thinking of buying one. I saw one on ebay for $140

If you google the old carb number it is still available. http://www.amazon.co...R/dp/B002WNYB08

 

Google your new number and it shows a Briggs crankshaft.

 

I bought a new carb for mine a few years ago for $140 because of the wear you are talking about.

I got that # from the shop mechanic, I just googled it and got a crank shaft. Those folks have been totally unreliable. I am happy that the folks here have been so helpful, Right now the carb is the only thing keeping the thing from rolling. I put the old pivot pin back in hoping it will now move freely.

I will get a new carb, the folks I got that number from told me they could get me one for $3oo. REALLY!!!???
