Carburetor Replacement

I'm ordering a new carb for my generator, you may remember I was trouble shooting this thing about 6-8 weeks ago and I can't get to run like I want so I'm replacing the Carb and I want to be sure I'm ordering the right one. If someone has the time to check these numbers I would sure apreciate it.
Briggs Numbers
Model 185432
type 0271E1
code 99090349
Mikuni number on carb L29BA 984
Carb I think I need 715670
If you have any sugestions on the best place to buy one and what it takes to set one up, that would be helpful too.
Thanks again
RB

That is the correct carb number. That would be just a bolt on as this is an EPA carb meaning fixed jets.
I would take pics of the linkage before removing the old carb so you know what goes where. I would also recomend buying part numbers (1)710235 and (1)710237 carb to intake gaskets.
Reusing old gaskets is asking for trouble.

Old gaskets

Thanks for the part numbers check and the additional part numbers, I hadn't thought about the gaskets I just spaced it I guess. Maybe that's my problem I've hade that carb of several times over the years and never replaced the gasket, lot of vibration there especial since it's running poorly.
Where's the best place to buy? I'm thinking I'm going to get them online.
Seems like amazon.com has the best price.
