8hp Briggs carb disassembly

I have a Briggs and Stratton 8hp model 190432. I took off the carb, disassembled it and am waiting for the carb kit to arrive. I just saw on another post that you are supposed to remove a tube before separating the two halves of this carb. I did not do that; it came apart with the tube still intact. Is this a problem? Have I ruined something by not removing the tube first?

Most carb kits come with a new tube, So the old most likely bent tube can be removed and the new one installed AFTER the top is in place.

Without an engine TYPE number I am not positive what carburetor is on your engine.

My guess is you have a 390323 medium two-piece Flo-Jet carburetor.

Here are some links that may help:

Sorry I should've listed the type. It is 6117-01. The code is 9309031B if that matters.

Your engine has the 390323 medium two-piece Flo-Jet carburetor so the previous link is good for you.

It is best to remove the emulsion tube and clean EVERYTHING thoroughly. I doubt anything is ruined.
