I have been looking high and low around localy for a 5/16 32 NEF tap for the main jet (emulsion tube) hole an the flo-jet 2 piece carb. I stumbled across the Briggs Part # 19245. It includes a 1/4 - 32 NEF tap for the low idle jet as well. Listed as $ 15.95 internet price. Most small engine guys I have talked to said that once the threads are stripped they are ruined. One old guy as well as a member or two here have stated that you can save the carb by retaping it. I have two that are stripped and I want to try to save them. They are like hens teeth around here. No one has any used or abused. I bought an engine a couple of years ago and the carb was stripped. It is the best of the two I have and I really think it can be saved. I also will order the proper screwdriver for the main jet also. Once I get them and ge them done i will let ya know how it works out. Probably should of put this with my other post for carb help. thanks. Roger.

Do you have a True Value Hardware store in your area, my local store carries taps but they keep the specialty taps behind the counter for some reason, I'd suggest seeing if they have a blunt tap in that size also ....

Our Local True Value and Ace don't have them. I am going to order them from Briggs and get two Rebuild kits also. Thanks John for the CarbRescue.com tip. I am going to contact them on a couple of Marvel Shebler carbs for our Allis Chalmers WC tractors we have. I appreciate the help. Roger.
