Default Yardman SC 5 carb gasket

I have a Yardman SC 5 chipper/shredder that had carb problems. I worked on the carb but now I cant find a gasket for it. I am not sure the year it was built but its not that old. I need the gasket that goes between the carb and gas tank. Any advice? Thanks in advance.

its most likely a Briggs and Stratton engine if the carb mounts to the tank. Locate the Model, Type, and Code #s on the engine rewind shroud and take those #s to your local small engine shop to get a new gasket. If you can't find the #s, take the entire machine there and they should be able to determine the #s from there.

The gasket should cost only a a buck or two.

Good luck,
Eli

do you have a pic? if so, I can probably tell you the part #..... I would need a pic of the top of the tank AND the bottom of the carb. heck, through in a pic of the engine in general.

Ask for part # 272996 aka 272410 aka 271928...... Any of these #s should get you the right gasket. Expect to pay no more than about $1.50 at the most. Maybe considerably less. If nothing else, I can mail one to you for probably $1.50, postage included (I can't be certain until I know your zip code).

If worst comes to worst, couldnt you just cut out a gasket from a flat piece and use that?

Steve I tried to cut one but the gasket is so intricate its nearly impossible. Add to that the pick up tube wont come off leaving it impossible to get a flat surface to trace out. I am sure with enough patients it can be done but I don't have that kind of patients.

My zip code is 95640

Ok, I was incorrect on the price but still I can mail it to you for $2.25, total cost. It is up to you if you want to mail me the money or do it through paypal. However, if we do paypal I would need to add the transaction fee to the $2.25 tho, which from my understanding, the fees will amount to $0.37 on that amount which is still cheaper than a stamp. Let me know if you want to do it or not.

Thanks,
Eli

WOW I am not trying to be cheap but .37 for a 2.25 transaction is horable. Are you sure that's correct? I thought it was like %2 they charge which should be like .05. Let me see if I can find it locally and I will get back to you. In the mean time maybe you can check into that paypal fee.
