    I find that rebuild kit in my aftermarket parts book. It lists for $8.75. Some aftermarket companies are Stens, Rotory,Silverstreak find a parts store that carries aftermarket and you'll find the kit.

    Just do a search on the net for Walbro carb rebuld kits (or something close) and there are a few more.

    BUT...Your dealer should be able to get (if he doesn't already have it like he should) easily for no more than $10 or $15.

    Walbro part number for a complete repair kit is K20WAT msrp $7.23, diaphragm kit only is D20WAT msrp $3.79, and the complete carb is a WA299-1 msrp $36.00. Any body that sells Walbro should be able to get these for you.

    You will save time and probable headache if you buy a new carb. As Jman has stated it's not much money. Sometimes even after soaking a carb you cant get some pasageways clean. I have switched to buying new carbs when I can rather than rebuilding them.
