    I like to think Im good at finding things on the internet... I ordered a new float needle and bowl gasket.. but now I cannot find the exploded parts list for 808725 carb ANYWHERE! I have been looking for an hour.. anyone have any suggestions? I need to order another part and this is driving me crazy!

    Thanks man! I was even on Briggs website looking and looking and could not find it! Ok last question and then I will retire to the 'hardscaping' forum where I belong and leave you guys alone.. I already ordered the Float needle valve and bowl gasket... I also want to get the 'seat' that the valve needle sits on.. I cannot determine which (if any) part number that is on the diagram? I want to replace this since really the float needle is most likely not my issue with gas leaking, but the seat itself.

    Thanks a lot!

    On the contrary, You have that backwards..... The viton tipped needle valve is the culprit in most cases, The brass seat in this particular carb is non-replaceable. Clean the seat with a Q-tip sprayed with carb & choke cleaner like you would your ears.......
