Default another stupid trick

It seems like I never learn. When I'm choosing engines for a project, the first thing I always do is to thoroughly check out the motor I'm using. Well, I didn't! It bit me on the butt. I knew the cowl trimmed out too easy !!! I've got everything done & went to fire up the motor. Guess what,it needs a carb.It was a motor I had put back a year or so ago. I forgot why I put it back. It NEEDED A CARB. It's all there,it has too much slop in the barrel. It was one powerfull motor. I'm hoping somebody out there might have one they would sell. It's a Magnum XL 46 with remote needle valve. I'm more that willing to pay a fair price + shipping. A new one I found out was a little over 30 bucks. Of course the &%$^ thing is on backorder. Can any body help me out? Thanks Ed
