These carburetors are a dime a dozen. Go to a local lawn and garden equipment dealer. Most dealers have junk out back they are willing to sell or part with,

That is such a common carb I would look for a replacement.

Thanks for the help guys. Found a new one on Ebay,$99. Not sure it's the same size or not. Thinking about just getting a used one. Maybe trying my first carb rebuild.

If there is a will, there is a way.

I have been looking here locally for two years and haven't found one that hasn't already been canibalized or frozen and broken or had the threads stripped out for the main jet.

I have one that is working that has the JB Weld treatment and is working fine. Roger.

Roger is right, these carburetors are hard to find in good shape.  I think you're remembering the little two piece Flo-Jet.  I'll sell you a box of those!  

 

I won't tell what I have had to pay for some of the big ones I needed and couldn't find.  I have started buying them when I see them at a good price.

Hmm, here in Wisconsin they are everywhere.

 

Next time I go to the tractor junk yard I'll grab a few of these carbs for you guys in need.
