Default Subaru/Robin parts?

Hey everyone, Im looking at picking up a used Subaru/Robin Ex27 9hp Ohc engine for my go kart, and wondering if you all know where to get parts for them.

Im not having much luck finding stock or aftermarket parts for it. I would like to know where i can get a stock replacement carb and gaskets.

I would also like to find a couple aftermarket upgrades as well. Ive found headers for them but havent come across any airfilter adapters to put a k&n cone air filter on the stock carb, or any intake manifolds to put a mikuni carb on it. Nor have i found jets to tune the stock carb.

Im not looking to build the 9hp Subaru, but would really love a k&n cone air filter, header and correct jets to run air filter and header. Maybe add a Mikuni carb later if possible.

Please help and thank you!

I know you can get a lot of parts here, but I am not sure of shipping, availability, etc

The last OEM carb I put on a unit, cost the customer like $140, not cheap

Subaru got out of the small engine game, parts are hard for dealers to get.

I do not have experience with the knock offs, but worth a shot, right?

I just make the factory carbs work, we only sold them on some walk behind blowers, not too many to service.

I got a header pipe for my EX21 here. I also got an adapter for an air filter as well and that came with a small bracket to hold down the choke lever.

Then I got a set of cheap drill bits from harbor freight and drilled out my jet. Did it in stages until the spark plug looked correct. The tiny drill bits come with a holder and you just use your hand to drill.

Really woke my engine up.
