There cant be too many new ones out there and in fact I'm still speechless I have my hands on it, a brand new NOS carburetor for my B&S model A!!!!!

Still in the box!!!

 

I think I'm going to keep this in the safe and may never use it but Its nice to have a spare and I wont be afraid to run my Bolens reel when I restore it someday.

Unfortunately no year on the box or paper

It's great finding NOS parts like that, especially a carburetor! I think those carbs have a cork float in them.

   You know----- come to think of it I couldn't get that model A I have running rite last summer and I think it was the carb.  maybe a NOS carb is in order to get it up and running :D

Boy, does that beat all! Great find! And I thought I was lucky to find a couple of NOS carbs for Briggs 8R6's I have. (I do understand about the safe; I keep my NOS set of Bolens hubcaps in the bottom of the china cabinet in the dining room.)

Someone should try to reproduce these parts to help keep these old engines going, it's getting difficult and expensive to find parts for a lot of this stuff.
