    where can i get one? i looked on the internet and could only find a superceeded choke lever. am i just sucking at searching?

    i dont think i know anywhere local that sells homelite or walbro parts.


    i need the kit because i have to pull apart the carb. its leaning real bad, something is clogged up in it. i know that taking it apart i will tear gaskets and im sure a new diaphram and some other new parts will help it too.

    The rebuild kit has a new needle valve, and paddle for it. The spring does not come in either kit because the kit covers so many differant carbs. If the carb is old I would get the rebuild kit because the paddle for the needle valve gets woren and does not work right. The gasket kit only has just that gaskets. You really need a Walbro carb tool to set the meter diaphram trip level on the valve paddle. Jets are not in the kit either. Google is a good serach engine but you may have just entered the search wrong. If you enter "Walbro WT471 rebuild kit" it comes back blank. Just try entering Walbro next time. Google and other search engines DO NOT search the net for things, they search they own "hard drives" for words found in web pages stored there. That is why sometimes you click on a link in Google or any search engine only to find out the link is dead or the site has changed or gone.

    If you do not have or can find a Walbro metering lever set tool item number 500-13 ($5.00?) you can set them the old way. I found this in an old Walbro manual years ago. Sorry about the PDF format but a picture scan of 800 X 600 (lawnsite limit) came out too small to read.
