    I have on old Murray 11-36 lawn tractor and it is in need of a new carb. Does anyone have any idea where to find one at for a mower built in the 80's? Really prefer not to take it in to the dealer.

    It would help if you put up the brand of engine, etc. However, I can pretty much just blindly guess that it has a Briggs and Stratton on it. Here's some step-by-step instruction as to how to get this part:

    1) Somewhere on the engine shrouds there should be some model numbers. Take note of all of those.

    2) Go get on this website: http://www.briggsandstratton.com/us/en/shop/parts-and-accessories/locate-model-number/engine

    You should from here be able to type in the models numbers and find a parts list. You should be able to

    A) Order a carburetor directly from Briggs, or
    B) Look on Amazon/Ebay/etc. and find the part you need.

    Hope this helps!

    Oh yeah, please do mention what brand of engine and model numbers, etc. that you find. Thanks.

    yes it is a briggs and stratton, i also have an old snapper 10hp for parts that also has a briggs ad stratton. can the carbs just be switched over or will it have to be a carb for that specific engine.

    It's a possibility that the carbs are the same, I'd give it a shot before ordering a $40+ carburetor.
