Carburetor. Which to buy. To EBay or not to Ebay.

Postby farmerted » Wed Feb 28, 2018 8:25 pm

:help:
Hey guys, I haven't posted in a while. Crazy how life changes.
My tractor needs a few things and I don't have deep pockets.
Has anyone bought one of the eBay Carburetors?
I have bought from our forum sponsors and I plan to for most of what I need. The price difference is just so great.
I'm just wondering if anyone has bought one and if it worked or not.

Thank you in advance, it is so awesome to have a group like this to draw from! :worthy:

Don McCombs and Bob McCarty did a comparison on the aftermarket carbs a couple of months ago, good read. Try the search function.

Thank you fellows for the response. That answers my question.
This will save me some heart acke.

Yes I should have searched this. I normally do rather than post questions, I just felt like asking.

Peter, I feel like it is. I have fought with it warping and think it's time to replace but have been offered some help with making sure it's time is over.
