Got a question. There is a seat that's associated with this kit but no part number. On the end of the seat is a rubber O-ring/gasket inside of it what I think is for the needle. The one I have for my Homelite 17 is in rough shape and would like to replace it but don't know where to get the O-ring. The carb is a HP-1A that I'm trying to finish off rebuilding. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
A lot of times you can go to a local hardware store & they'll have an assortment of O rings available.Be careful not to get a metric O ring.When the model 17 was made it was far from Homelite to use anything metric.
Check out this site, discount-marine-parts.com They have kit listed for this model of carb. The kit number is 23875 You can search for the carb there. Might have to contact them to see if they have the"O" ring seperate. I have ordered kits from them for other carbs.
I did shoot over to the hardware store and did get something that's close to the original, will try it and see if it'll work. Bobby167... I did get the kit from them but that's a good idea. I'll reach out to see if they have anything, Thanks!
