I am in the same boat but mine is on a Cub Original. What I have found out so far is that you will need the numbers off the carb to find a replacement.
Mine is a 1441 Carter Model N, and so far I am still scratching my head trying to figure out what I can use in its place.

The model N doesn't tell you much. Just a name for a bunch of differents carbs. What you need to do is look in the throat of the carb from the choke end. At the top of the venturi there will be some numbers. Will probably read #26 or possibly #30. This picture should help.

Kohler eventually made their own carb, same as the Carter without the name. Look inside the choke throat for a number. Should be a 26. A 30 is too big. Rarely will you find a 28. Then they went to Walbro. If you get one of those be sure it has the adjustable main jet. Some have a fixed main. And the number system is different than Carter. If the lever on the throttle shaft is different you may be able to adapt it.

If you have a Kohler K301 12hp with a Carter N series 26 carburetor, I can sell you a reproduction Carter with adjustable jets for $79. Which is what I would use. I'd always choose fixed jets if you have a choice. FWIW and for future reference, I can get a 26 and a 30 reproductions for $79 each.
If you have a Kohler K301 12hp using part number 47 853 22-s, fixed jets, I can sell you a reproduction made by Walbro for $149. Ouch.
If you have a Kohler K301 12hp using part number 47 853 20-s, fixed jets, I can sell you a reproduction made by Walbro for $149. Ouch.
If you have a Kohler K301 12hp using part number 47 853 23-s, fixed jets, I can sell you a reproduction for $179. Double ouch.

I don't mean to highjack the thread so please forgive me.
Is anyone familiar with the replacement carb that is on a Cub Original?? Mine is a Carter Model N with a number 1441 listed on the top of the carb. The motor is a Kohler 161S.
