Fits a 1972 MTD 990 with a 15hp B&S engine. Need just the bottom half but will buy the whole carb if need be. Same thing Roger was looking for. Thanks.

For those looking in, he needs the lower half of a large 4 bolt two piece Flo-Jet. 

 

I do have one complete carb here.  PM me if you are interested.

The local John Deere dealer was able to retap the hole for $3.00. The emulsion tube was a little tight getting it in. The main needle valve went right in. Hope it works.

Did you put in a new teflon sealing washer behind that nozzle?  That will help ward off leaks if that sealing surface is warped.

 

Your JD dealer must be a good group.  Mine would have charged the minimum shop rate of $50.  :wallbanging:

I used the seal that came with the kit. I don't believe it was teflon though. It looked like thick gasket material. I got lucky with the JD dealer. The mechanic asked me want I wanted and he did the retap right there. No paper work or anything.
