Default Carburetor Bowl Gasket

I've searched the forum and can't find the item I'm looking for----I am new to this forum, so please help me if you can. I have a Generac Generator with engine model number 190. I am trying to find a replacement/substitute for the carburetor bowl gasket or o-ring (I'm not sure if it was originally an o-ring or not). Can anyone help me with this "quest"? The owner's manual does not break it down to that detail.

You need all the numbers off it to get the proper part number.

Any suggestions as to where to order the part from once I figure out the number?

Any Briggs and Stratton dealer can get you Generac parts.

Walturd-

My Craftsman/Generac generator has the GN-190 engine (Generac-Nagano). There were at least two carburetors used with it. Mine came with an 83666B adjustable-jet carburetor, which is no longer available. It was replaced by a 0836660SRV kit which consists of a 98469 fixed-jet Carburetor with a new air filter housing and gasket. You should find the carb number embossed somewhere on its body.

I have found no data on the bowl gasket part number for either, but a B&S dealer may be able to find it.

You may be interested in a Generac service manual for the GN-series engines, which can be downloaded from
<http://www.guardiangenerators.com/PublicPDFs/0C1103A.pdf> Unfortunately it does not contain a parts list.

Fred

SHould be a Nikki carb on there, with a common Nikki bowl molded o-ring. Dont bet on Briggs having parts for the Generac engine, go right to a Generac dealer. Oh and the Lease aggreement that allowed briggs to build portable power equipment is over soon, so the generac labled briggs stuff should finally go away. Generac generators were never built by briggs, unless it was the el-cheapo version with an intek.

http://www.generac-portables.com/ Check out this website that says Generac Is A Briggs And Stratton Company. Read the paragraph.

Generac portables, and Generac are 2 different companies. Generac portables was created by briggs, by leasing the right to use the Generac name. That lease is over soon. Generac engines are not serviced by briggs. Thats the short of it.
