I can't recall what make the carb is, but they were used on the larger Brigg and Stratton engines. We had one on our Suburban 725 garden tractor. 7.25 hp Briggs engine

More specifically it is a small flojet, as indicated by the four perimeter screws which fasten both halves of the carburetor together. The larger flojets have three screws in triangular orientation. These carburetors were used on a lot of the small number series Briggs. I have them on cast iron model 8's and 9's

Exclamation Re: Unknown carburetor

My grandfather had an early rotary lawnmower with an aluminum block B&S engine on it. A number 6 type I think. Your carb is indeed a Flo-Jet, and it looks just like the one from that early mower - circa 1959. I should know, I 'helped' grandpa 'fix it' when i was only 5 years old. He had bent the blade and left a vice grip, hammer and stevens screw driver next to the mower, and then I went to work. i still have that like new carb, the only part taken off intact. The mount plate looks home made.

How did they mount the carb on the Maytag? Where did they mount the fuel tank? Flo-Jets are gravity fed carbs. Did they use the original Maytag poppet valve in the original mixer, or some kind of reed to keep crankcase pressure and vacuum contained? If the 'farmer fix' worked, someone did a cool job of it. Or was it a failed experiment? If there were no reeds or a check valve between the carb and the crankcase, it will not work.
