What goes here?

I ordered a 498298 Briggs carb. All the linkage is the same as the old carb but the mounting hole spacing is to far apart All I need is a similar Briggs carb with narrow mounting hole spacing. Does anyone know the Briggs part number for a correct Briggs carb?

    My Crystal Ball is broken so We would need the Model and type numbers along with the date code to lookup the engine.

    Is your carb oem? Aftermarket can be sketchy at best.

    Sorry for the what goes here. The engine came with no cover so all info for this one is unknown. I took a guess as to all engine info. I redrilled the mtg holes to fit the block but the casting on the carb will soon break being to thin.Was looking for a narrow hole spacing carb similar to a Briggs 498298.
