    just found out they dont make gasket kits for this model because its a cheap carburetor. whats a compatible carburetor that supplies this gasket kit.

    Why not just replace the carburetor and save yourself some grief?

    I have the same problem with my Homelite 26b.  Model UT09526.  THe carb is part number 308054114.  A newer compatible carb. is 308054075.  I replaced the carb., but had to fashon a new gasket between carb. and engine.
    Would like to put a kit into my old bad carb. but can find no such kit.  Go figure.

    I agree a new one is easier. But look at the carburetor for info. Like C1U and then maybe a W52??
    If you research the kits are on ebay. Cross over and get the kit on Jacks.
    Most of the time the float diaphragm needs replacement. And the inlet screen is clogged from Ethanol gas.

    It will be a Ruixing from China, there are no service parts. It's tough times for the service shops and DIY guys, the majority of the products flooding the market are disposables. Home Depot sells a new gas trimmer for $79.95, who can compete with that? It's a 45 minute job to replace the starter cord plus parts.
    If you are willing to spend a little extra, Echo/Shindaiwa (my favorite), Stihl, Husqvarna and others offer much better quality and their products are serviceable. Parts are available, but then again sometimes we are better off just replacing the component. Carburetors can be very troublesome and time consuming.
