    Best place to buy Walbro carb kits..

    I wonder if anyone had a good recommendation for an online source for Walbro carb parts, I need a few diaphragms, some have dried up on the planes.

    find a local old time saw shop that will sell you just what you need. Most of the stuff in the rebuild kits is not needed.

    RE: Best place to buy Walbro carb kits..

    Generally all that is needed is the regulator diaphragm, and I buy them by the "10 pack", wherever I can find them online cheap. Usually most of the other gaskets can be re-used.

    RE: Best place to buy Walbro carb kits..

    I might be interested in the 10 packs online, I have multiples of the same engines. I haven't ran across that before.. any chance you recall a vendor?

    I will search some more, but so far I had found single kits, and was looking for the diaphragms..

    addendum

    ok, I did some searching and found the multi pack kits, they appear to have a different part number on them than the carb body, will the part number be on the old diaphragm when I pull it out? or is there a cross reference chart for the parts numbers used in each carb?

    Any help is much appreciated...I don't think I have a single old diaphragm laying around to look at... I will take one apart when I get a chance...and see.

    The diaphragm is the same for all WT series Walbro carbs, and many others. (The link above shows which models/series have the same diaphragm in common.)

    the only difference is the carbs with the primer bulb on the regulator side have the pass through port on the gasket, other than that all the WA and WT regulator diaphragms are the same.

    there are 2 diaphragms used in WT,WA

    pump diaphragms and metering diaphragm, no such thing as a regulator diaphragm in these carbs.

    2 bucks each? I get them for half that.

    Most people call the metering diaphragm a regulator diaphragm here in the forums. Where do you buy them?

    Thanks,

    Are the ones you get for half the price of the ones in the link above,Walbro ones or aftermarket ?I've found that the aftermarket ones don't last as long.

    The thing is if you do a search on regulator diaphragm it won't turn up as many results as if you used metering diaphragm.
