I was planning on replacing my stock briggs carb with a mikuni, but didnt know size. My stock carb is in bad shape, the whole bowl is coated in solder because it was that rusted out. anyways, im going to pick up a mower with a good carb, and i'd rather run stock since i can afford a billet flywheel or anything.

The 34mm Mikuni works great on the 12hp,also the 191 Tilly does also.I've ran up to a 40mm on a 12 with no problems.I run a
40mm on my 5hp Shapper.

40mm on a 5hp snapper, wow thats intense. I just had a few 38mm mikunis lying around from an old polaris storm and figured it would be a good idea, until i thought of the whole governor thing, which i would rather not disconnect.

You could always just put a liquid cooled 800 triple in your mower :lol:

I was thinking about putting my electric start 340 SkiDoo motor in my recovery mower, but then I decided I didn't need my recovery mower breaking down and not running ALL THE TIME :lol:

Stupid SkiDoos :noplease:

Believe it or not, i have the whole engine, but it needs crank bearings and piston rings (there flippin $22 per ring!), so i guess i wont be rebuilding that.
