Engine model difference

I have some Cub Cadets I am restoring and flipping. One has a OHSK90 model engine and another has a HMSK80 model engine. Both need carburators. While I can find several carbs for both, why is the carb for the OHSK90 more expensive then the HMSK80?
One is a 8.5 hp and the other is a 9 hp. Besides the horse power, the only physical difference I see is how the choke linkage comes out of the side on one carb and out the end of the other.
