I bought an after market carburetor for my 8hp briggs and stratton and when I compared the needle valve out of a rebuild kit for the factory carburetor and the aftermarket needle valve, the aftermarket one is longer. Does anyone know where I would find parts for the aftermarket carburetor? Below is a link to the aftermarket one that I have. Thanks

With the price of that carb I think it may just be a 1 hit wonder with no service parts available for it. I stock these carbs in an aftermarket brand but mine are just like the OEM carbs and can take the OEM screws and needles, see link below

If you look at yours compared to mine the choke lever and screws are completely different than OEm style.

I noticed the screws, not looking like such a good deal anymore
