And to think, You could have saved a boat load of time by replacing it after the first time off; http://tewarehouse.com/12853177-S


I'll stick to my way of replacing seats (which I hardly do anymore for the above reason), Never believed in hammering on soft material such as aluminum or brass.....

Oh I don't know $31 vs $80 and the new one only has a 90 guarantee
Up until now I simply put a gas shut-off and took the key switch out and we run that way. I got six of these sick pups running that way. Why can't this company buy a better carb, I have never had a Briggs or Kaw leak have you?
