    The existence of a Stihl online source is much like the Tooth Fairy--they don't exist.

    The carb is either a Zama or Walbro. If it has numbers on it can be identified as one of the two, you may be able to get the carb from a dealer.

    I have found a few cases where the Stihl carb is proprietary, dealer only.

    Stihl guys possibly can give you more info.

    I guess they want people to pay for service. I am just helping my friend to look for a carb. I don't buy Stihl mainly because of this. I don't trust dealers and don't want their service.
