    Local dealers want between $175 and $200 for new carb for 2001 Briggs 11hp IC motor, off Little Wonder blower. Is there a company that I can deal with to get a factory carb directly?? thanks, Joe

    Look, if the distributor didn't want $145-$175 from us dealers for a carb, we wouldn't have to charge you list price. But keep looking around for a carb instead of getting back out and using your equipment to make twice that on a job. :dizzy:

    I got some #'s for you. Model # 254422, Type # 1526 01, Code # 9505221 B.
    Maybe I can just get by with a re-building kit!

    As Bill stated above ^^^^^^^

    These style carbs were known for worn throttle shafts.....

    Thanks for your help guys... is a throttle shaft part of a re-building kit??

    No, Not in the rebuild kit. In most cases the aluminum housing wears so check it closely before trying to re-build.
