B&S VTwin 24 HP with NIKI Carb

I have had it with rebuilding the Niki carb PN 791230. It gets clogged and runs bad all the time. I have rebuilt / cleaned it about 20 times over the last couple of years.
 
DOES anyone know of another kind of carb that will bolt on the intake, that will work with this motor? One that is more reliable and maybe give it a little more power.
 
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Panama Tom

    Have you replaced the fuel filter and fuel line which is probably rotten? Have you cleaned the tank? You are only treating the symptoms, not the disease itself. The contamination has to come from somewhere. Also use a quality stabilizer.

    Sorry for not answering faster, I have used SEAFOAM from the beginning and replaced the line from the filter to fuel pump and then to the carb.
     
    It turns out that it had a bent pushrod and the other pushrods were out of adjustment. I replaced the pushrod and cleaned the head and it runs again. 
     
    As of last month the safty switches were bad ( checked all and decided that they were to far gone clogged with sand and junk and I don't use the deck for mowing ) so I direct wired the engine and it runs again.
     
    Now it wont start Backfires through the carb so I pulled the valve cover off and the pushrod was bent again.
     
    Now I have to find out what is causing it to eat the pushrods. That will be in a new post.
     
    Thanks for your help
