Default Chorehorse Carb

Years ago i found a chorehorse to restore



but the carb have parts missing



I have tried to reproduce the missing parts, but without success



Any store to buy new one or any other carb to replace the original?

I was thinking of using a chainsaw carburetor, which also sucks the fuel from the tank ...

Any idea or help are welcome!

Thanks in advance!

Can you give us more information . Are you hoping to have the Chorehorse running or is it a a cosmetic rebuild.

I do have a few NOS spares but Not a carby . I could have bought a whole truck load of NOS Chorehorse parts at Bill Drews yard but that was 40 years ago .

Hi Mike
Yes i want make a running restoration.
Carb work with extra upper gas tank. The front valve is the problem to sucks fuel from lower tank.

There was 3 recently on ebay. However checking today I can't seem to find them. They are the same as the BSA 300watt generator.

To help your search -I'm not certain whether they are 100% interchangeable but Johnson sold very similar engines under the Iron Horse name. This might get you a "close enough" part.
