188 Automatic Carburetor



Carburetors at Generator Parts World

This is a 188 Gas Engine Automatic Carburetor

This is for a 188 gas engine automatic carburetor with electric fuel shutoff. Most carburetors for gas engines 11hp and up come in 1 of 2 styles but there are exceptions. This carburetor is an automatic style of carburetor that is used when there is an external way to adjust the throttle. The other most common style is the manual style that has a long choke handle.

This carburetor comes standard with an electric fuel shutoff solenoid on the bottom. This solenoid is powered through 2 quick connect wires that are pictured.

While most of the time you can visually compare parts to match the correct one needed it is always a good idea to remove and compare everything possible. We offer brand, model, sub-model, and part numbers to help customers find parts easier but there can be variations. Matching small engine parts are not as simple as car parts so more information can be needed. Sub-models can use variations of original parts, model numbers that have been used for years can differ from year to year, manufacturers can recycle part numbers, parts diagrams can show photos that misrepresent the parts, and so on. We are always happy to help matching parts, just use our contact page to reach us if assistance is needed.

When you purchase this carburetor it will include the 2 gaskets for either side of the carburetor and a new carburetor insulator. We offer this carburetor with gaskets and fuel line but we also sell larger kits with other parts that may be needed to repair your small equipment such as fuel cocks and ignition coils. View the pricing and photos of these kits by selecting your needs from the drop down menu above.
