I am wanting to remove the carb to clean. It looks like the intake manifold has to come off first. Can I use silicone for the intake gaskets?
What kit and where would one advise to get the carb kit/gaskets?
I'm not sure what model carb it is but it says DD, the engine is a B48m Onan.

Thanks guys, I'm going to need to do just some slight carburetor tinkering on my Snapper 1855 that I just picked up.  The high speed adjustment needle is stripped out so I think I'm going to have to order one of those and I'm hoping I'll be good.  I'm guessing it's soft brass and can be removed with an easy out, or if I have to, very carefully drill it.
