I have a Waldro fixed main jet carb on my Kohler M18 engine. Walbro # is 5205326. Was at Ariens dealer today talking about my engine which is running great but getting close to 2000 hours. He told me to make sure governor is pinned which I already did many years ago. He also said to replace brass inlet seat with stainless steel because E10 will corrode brass over time and allow gas to dilute oil.

Kohler kit 25-757-02-S may be correct but I think it may be for Kohler made carbs only. Also, it appears this kit has a brass, not stainless seat. Can anyone tell me exactly what kit I need? Has anyone heard about the stainless inlet seat conversion? Thanks.

Correct kit for that carb is the 25-757-02 which I stock below:

Never heard of stainless parts for these

Thanks. Figured the stainless seat was BS. Would you suggest rebuilding carb on a preventive basis? I don't mind doing it but it seems to be running fine. It is a gas hog but it has always been that way.

PS does that same kit fit both Kohler and Walbro carbs?

I believe this is not the correct kit. According to Brian Miller's website, this kit fits Carter and Carter/Kohler carbs. The Walbro carbs (WHL's and WHG's) take 25 757 11-S. Also, the Walbro carbs do not have a replaceable inlet seat.
