    Needle & Seat.

    I have another Needle and Seat that is leaking, I was wondering if anyone has tried the ones on Ebay? They have a Carb rebuilt kit for $12.99 with free shipping.
    Maybe thats just a little to good a deal to be possible.

    Ditto to what LT said. You are never quite sure what you'll get with a lot of the aftermarket stuff. Especially with Carb parts.

    Where's your sense of adventure?

    OEM is good but....

    If you get the right kit......

    The Shindy kits are quality, Japan-made parts. This is the one I have used:

    And you can get the whole kit for the price of the valve seat alone.

    Thanks for all your help. That Shindy kit looks like its a good one, I like that its made in Japan, I found it on Amazon for $27.99 with free shipping.
    I really only need the Needle & Seat but it would be nice to have some extra parts on hand.
    You guys that reminded me about the cheep Chinese parts, Thank you.
