Might sound silly, but have you tried O&R Engines?

O and R would be 'Ohlssen and Rice', I believe. They made model airplane engines and chainsaw engines too.

Thanks Hough for the links. Aparrently O&R and their sucesser company Advanced Engine Products, Inc are out of business. I guess I am out of luck unless I can find a carb that will fit.

You are correct. They also made a 350 watt genset with 12v & 120v and a gasoline powered drill.

I don't know that carb design has changed much over the past 50 years....I would not be surprised if that same carb is still sold for something....the issue, of course, is finding out what that "something" is.

Apparently from what I can see on the parts page it has a gravity feed single line fuel feed so that narrows it down.
