The one I bought last summer cost $35 bucks.  The carb kit, which had
gaskets, a needle valve, and a couple o-rings was $15.  Twenty bucks
to not have to build a carb that had sat for five or six years, when
what was wrong with the carb was all the whatnot was now wasnot, seems
like a pretty good value.  Particularly if you're fixing the thing
because it's a tool, and you want to use it, and not because you're
fixing it to fix something.
