Just do a search for a carb with your B&S model #. Should find one on Ebay, Amazon or other places. Just got one for my 18.5 B&S on Ebay for $25 with free shipping.

I've purchased these eBay carbs for $12 shipped, and they work just fine:


I started using them as an experiment, as my issues usually stemmed from bad needles and seat, bowl gaskets, fuel solenoids, etc.
Since these whole carbs cost less than the parts to fix the old ones, I thought I'd give it a shot, and they've worked out well.

I agree. The last carb I did was so nasty I would have spent more on carb cleaner and a rebulid kit then I did on the new carb.
