Briggs to discontinue carburetor

Recommended Posts

Nick
My neighbor knows somebody who was able to get me a carburetor for a 10hp 243431 at wholesale cost from a distributor in Albany, NY for $100.00. Normal retail cost is $154.00> He told me the guy said Briggs is planning on discontinuing it next year due to EPA regulations. Anyone one know if this is true? If it is order one now from your Briggs dealer.

First, the $100.00 for the carburetor is a real good price! What is the name of this distributor. I live about 30 miles South of Albany, NY. Second, he may be right about discontinuing the carburetor. Sadly, as time goes on, parts for these rugged old cast-iron block single cylinders are gonna be hard to find and very pricey when you do find them.

All I know is that this is a friend of friend type deal. The guy who is getting the carb owes my neighbor a favor, and his other friend owes him a favor. From what I hear the guy is a dealer that's why he is getting it for a wholesale price. He thinks it's for my neighbors tractor otherwise I wouldn't have gotten it for that price. I don't know the name of the distributor either.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
