old briggs engine needs carb

Hello,
I have an old briggs engine that needs a carb. Engine will run with fuel poured down carb, but not otherwise. It is off of an old rototiller. Cant track down any info from either the sears model number of the engine number. I did find a briggs carb on amazon for $300 that is the correct part number, but we all know I can get a chinese one for $20. Trying to make sure I get the correct one. Engine is 5hp. Carb throat is 7/16. mounting holes are 1 3/4" apart. Currently has a Lauson carb on the engine. From what I have seen on the internet, these carbs are made for honda engines. carb has the fuel line on left side facing edge that goes to engine. My carb is pretty close to this, but this does not have the choke and I am not sure of this will bolt up properly.

Any help would be appreciated.

    It is more likely a Tecumseh engine but the Sears numbers and I see if it one them.
