craftsman lawnmower honda engine

I have a craftsman lawnmower 917.376780 with a Honda engine, it says the family is 3hnxs 1871ak. Lawnmower wont start. tried cleaning carb and reassembling. still did not start. Was going to by a carb kit but could not match engine info. what is engine # or where is number located? Any thoughts how to proceed with repair? What comes in a carb kit?

Did you verify that it is for sure the carb? Is the spark plug firing? Can you add fuel through the spark plug hole and get it to fire up for a second or two? I think the engine numbers are stamped into the side of the block, but I don't recall for sure. I can look at one and see.
