  1. You can buy an import version of that carb (Briggs p/n 390323) on Amazon for fifteen bucks. I bought one just to disassemble and study, before I rebuild the 71 year old Stromberg UC 3/4 on my 1948 Gibson. They're both updraft carbs and similar in design.

  2. Thank's for posting this ………. I had ran out of those parts and wanted to make sure of that number …………

    In fact those washers are used on the tank and carb 3 1/2 HP engines also…. But you use the small pin and the washer on that fix………

    I gotcha subbed also ………..

    Plus Tard Mon Ami ~!~!
