Post carburetor gasket for Brute 6.75 mower

It's not easy where I live to find parts for the above machine. Now I need a gasket for its carburetor. Of couse I can copy the original one, but no doubt would be easier to have a 1:1 drawing. Does it exist??

And who made the model.
There should be a model and serial # on the motor some place to look up parts for it.
It would be rare that a moower company would also make the engine.

you can bet your a$$ thats a Briggs engine on there every Brute I have come across has a briggs. Pressure washers too.

The only gaskets are the bowl gasket and the gasket that goes on the back of the carb and the front of the carb that the air box goes on. 2 bucks and some change at the dealer!!!!

You need the make, model and serial # on the engine to look up the parts needed.

If it's the air filter gasket you can make one but you better be damn good at cutting holes and slotted holes. If you have a primer bulb on it's hard to get that hole just right in that gasket.

The part number for the kit is 498260 Briggs carb kit.

Good!
I'll try to use instead silicon wax as used between CPU and cooler.

Well that makes no sence.
No sealer needed.

I don't know if this will help or not but I make 90% of all my gaskets.
On a small gasket, I simply apply a very light coating of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly to the mating surface and carefully press gasket material to that surface--without moving.
Remove and you have a perfect stained pattern.
Over the years, I have made many different size gasket hole punches out of pipe. I also have a hand operated punch with six different size tiny punches that are rotated into position.
About the only gasket I don't make is for exhaust.
