Default 5hp briggs flathead intake manifold and carb

so my raptor 3 needs a new carb as the original just wont work as its beat to crap with the throttle linkage broke and no idea if it works right. basically i need a carburetor that fits on my engine it should be a slide carburetor for ease of setting up the throttle. but i haven't found much online as to anything i can afford for a intake manifold and i have no real idea for a carburetor. any help is appreciated!

Look up "mikuni vm22" or "mikuni 22mm" on Ebay. The are a bunch of listings for genuine Mikunis for about $20, and 22mm is almost exactly the port size of a Briggs.

As far as intakes, the few on the web are about $50, so I feel ya there, I'm looking to Mikuni my Briggs too. Once I get a welder, I'm going to whip up a custom intake for my kart, I'll probably make a whole batch and make a bunch of money on it!

Won't be too easy for me to make one as my welder is a pile of junk good for stick welding practice but it's stuck at 50a from the factory

If you want mine i can mail you it just the carb will need to be coupled instead of bolted or a washer welded to it on the otherside

Thanks for the offer but I'm going to try and make my own first. If it comes down to it maybe but for now I'll have to try and make my own. out of what I've got itll be a week or two till I can even try to make one but hopefully I can. I'm thinking a really thick plate for the flange tapping it and screwing in a pipe instead of welding it.

A lot of people will make an adapter with 2 1" washers and a bit of 3/4" steel pipe. I made one for my OHV Briggs so I could run a GX200 carb on it.

Changing the length will change how your engine runs. Longer = more bottom end torque, Shorter = more top end power.

Alright I'll see if my little stick welder is up to the task plus I suck at welding but once I get a chance I'll try
