New Carb

I could be posting this in the wrong section but I have a question on a carb I ordered Sunday and got today from Amazon. The carb is from Oregon I open the box and notice the plastic bag it came in had been cut open and the carb smelled gassy. Has anyone run into this? I haven't slapped it on too cold (17) but it looks real new. By the way it's a Oregon 50-659 for a 10 hp Ariens and looks like a good match.

Sounds like they sent you a return. If I where you I would send it back. Who knows what they gas was like that was used in it.

you may have gotten a returned one from amazon. I would be extra prudent in making sure nothing was taken off of it.

Yep you got a return. You could install it and see if it works. If it does, contact amazon and tell them it was used. You will probably get a refund.

Or just return it and get a new one. Up to you.

As a follow up. I sent a notice to Outdoor power deals and this is their reply.

"We open the Bag to check that the float is level. Its not gas you smell its machine oil from Manufacture. Let us know if you have any problems. 800-409-0162 M - F 9am-5pm Central Time"

Don't make sense to me.

I just ordered one from amazon and it also had a oil/fuel smell. I figured they tested it before they sent it out.

Like I said I would try it before you send it back.

As another follow up I threw the carb on crank it for about two seconds and she fired right up. We see what happens next snow fall.
