    Took my 21 in today to have it serviced and found out that the carb is shot, the throttle shaft has a ton of play in the bore. also found out this carb is no longer available, anyone ever have to get a new carb for the old toro 5.5 2 stroke? is my only option a new motor?

    Since your talking 2 stroke, I'm assuming a Suzuki.

    What is the model/serial numbers on the deck?

    I was told that there are no engines available to replace the suzuki 2-cycles with BBC. If someone knows of a model number, please let me know. I may have a carb for that engine, I will look this week. It isn't new, but never had any problems.

    qualitylawnpro,
    Please direct me to where the $120 carbs are sold. The cheapest I have found is around $250.
