Briggs Carburetor Question

Recommended Posts

BAP

I have a Briggs and Stratton 302431-0144-01 in my tractor. The carburetor is in rough shape and I was wondering where the best place to buy one is? Are the $30 ones on Amazon any good or are they crap. Mine is probably rebuildable, both shafts are sloppy, so I was wondering if I might be better off and more cost effective to just put another one on.

I put one of those ultra cheap carbs on a Harbor Freight Greyhound 11 horse engine. It fit right on and seems to work fine. I just ordered one for a Mantis Tiller that's seen its share of use. I put a carb from the dealer on before and it cost me $70, and genuine carbs are about $90. This one will cost me about $13, including spare bulbs and new fuel lines and grommets. As for a carb for the old cast iron Briggs, I was able to rebuild mine, though it still leaks out the bottom. Its a crapshoot as NOS carburetors will be hard to find, so the Chinese replacement just might work. You can always send it back if it doesn't work if you are getting it from Amazon.

My experience is that 1 in 3 of the chineese carbs is junk and wont work. I just buy from Ebay sellers with high feedback ratings and have never had a problem getting replacements for the ones that dont work. Never been asked to return  any of the junk ones.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
