Carb Replacement for Simplicity 860

Good Morning!


New here! Recently my neighbor bought a new blower so he gave me his old one. Simplicity 860 model. Told me needed a carb rebuild or a new one. Problem is i cant figure out which one to purchase? I posted some pics below. I cant seem to find the model number and the plate that usually has it is worn off. I know its a B&S 8hp. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would rather just purchase a new carb.



Thank You.


Greg

if you look here, you may be able to narrow down the model number. https://www.jackssmallengines.com/ja...rer/simplicity

Why not just try cleaning it first? Minimal time invested, and might be all it needs. You don't know if you need a kit until you get into it . . .

order a clone from ebay. take the old one apart and use carb clean. its really an easy job, plenty of utube vids on howto, either way youll have a backup carb for cheap

Bought a dead but now fixed 1980ish craftsman II 10/28....ITS ONE HEAVY BEAST
