Help needed looking for a part

Hi, I have a leaf blower with a B&S engine with a broken rocker arm nut (part#491511) that I can't find any where. I tried locally and the internet but for some reason it is a discontinued part.
Does anyone know where I can get this part at.

Thanks in advance.

You said you tried locally. Did you try taking it to a local repair shop ?

Some times those guys recognize parts by site or maybe they have old engines kicking around that may have it.

Yes I did at one shop near my house, but no dice. There are a couple of other shops in my area that I am planning on stoping by when I have a chance but I'm not getting my hopes up to high.

Its strange why they would discontinue such an important part which must be on alot of there older engines.

That's a very common adjuster nut found on almost all of the older larger briggs OHV engines. Any mower shop should have one, or I believe the newer style works as well. They are for sale on ebay too.
