fox .40 carb replacement?
i have an older version of the fox 40 the one with the muffler that slants downward, i've been trying to reguvinate the motor and i soked the carb in oil becasuse it was stuck. so when i took it out i jiggled it a few times with the plyers and it became free(the throttle arm) but the actual opening in the carb does not move, i assume this means it'a broke and i am trying to get another carb or find a replacement. can anyone help me?

Contact Fox. Last year I ordered parts for an engine that's over 25 years old. Got them in about 3 days. Really nice people.

RE: fox .40 carb replacement?
hey Racer I have a few suggestions. Is it stuck because of old oil in it? I fso try some spray carburetor cleaner. You can get some Gumout at any auto store. Another suggestion is using brake parts cleaner. It uses an alcohol type base and might work also. If it is corroded try some "PB Blaster". It is a penetrating oil spray available at auto parts stores. It comes in a yellow and white can. Soak it and let it sit for a few hours and soak again. You may need to do it several times but it should come unstuck. After freeing it up I would dissasemble it and thouroughly clean it. If not Fox still sells parts. Good luck.
