      This kit works for several B & S engines and not all of the parts (e.g., a air-fuel mixture/idle mixture screw) were useful for my particular engine. Some of them I think I could have used had I had the proper tools - example, the seat for the float valve. I had no way of extracting the old one and thus could not insert the new one. Same for the Welch plugs. I find that is best to devote a block of time to the project so that I don't hurry. I have no training as a mechanic but find that I can do the carburetor job with no difficulty. I just have to be careful taking it apart being sure that I know how to put it back together again. This carburetor is not complicated with the main concern being the float bowl gasket, float, needle valve and the main jet. Make sure the main jet orifices are clear - I spray them good with carb cleaner and then plow them out with compressed air. Make sure that the new gasket seals nicely as the jet is screwed in through the hole in the float bowl. A small sheet of instructions came with the kit which might be helpful (the pictures were not very good) if you had nothing else and you can find much better instructions on the Internet. After reassembly the engine started easily. Then after sitting for about 2 weeks, it again started with one pull. I am using the gasoline with no ethanol to see if I can avoid having to do this again soon.

      Pros Easy to Use Cons was not available in the store - had to order.
