Looking for a two piece flowjet carb for a Briggs model #142302 6 H.P. engine. If it can be rebuilt then it is fine. Not sure the one I have will ever break down for cleaning and rebuilding.
Thanks

the carb you need is a medium flow jet. They made them in three sizes, small med, and large. You orginal carb should have a special part on the end of the throttle shaft that you will need to operate the linkage properly.

Right, the one I have is apart but rough condition. The venturi will not come out without stripping the threads off.

Had that happen on one of mine once unfortunately it broke. They are fairly easy to find. I picked up 2 this year for 10bucks. Also you can get new upper and lower halves online fairly reasonable

Soaked it in lacquer thinner and WD 40 with no luck. It turns about 1/4 turn then locks tight.

A 50/50 mix of the acetone/ATF is very good for loosening rusted parts. Not sure how well it might work in your situation for corrosion due to 2 dissimilar metals. But might be worth a try!
