New to the forum...  I picked up a cheap Briggs and Stratton 5S.  This is the type with the gas tank hanging below the carb.  I would ideally like to replace it with a more modern carb.  I also want to change out the gas tank.  Can anyone recommend a suitable replacement carb?  For what it's worth, I have both a mill and lathe and could make an adaptor plate if needed.  


There are dozens of cheap carbs on Amazon, but I don't know enough to make a decision!  Would appreciate any assistance.  Link below to my guess at one possible carb...  





Thanks in advance.

I cannot see any reason why a carburetor and tank couldn't be swapped of of a model 6.  And related hardware, of course.
