Default Finding G-carb parts

I've got a main bearing that has been purported to be for a G-carb upright engine. I was going to just block-off the intake port and use it with the upright parts I was going to Frankenstein-together into a running E-carb engine and got to thinking - are there any loose G-carbs & tank-tops/crankcases out there? Would I be looking at fruit-jar-like money to finish a G-carb engine off? Is anybody repopping the G-carbs and parts?

Just thinking out loud. Thanks for any input.

Still new to Maytags so I may be wrong on what I have.

If the parts WERE on eBay, I must have missed them; if they're GOING to be listed on eBay - give me a heads up if/when it'll happen if you're going to be listing some.

Thanks.

Hopefully they attach - they may be too big.

Pictures #4 & #5 are the bearing in question (bare metal) next to an e-carb bearing (red) - just a little bit different

joder,neither of the main bearings shown fit a G CARB maytag. they may have been used on a D carb, they appear to be variations of the same part.

I agree, I think what you have there is a D carb bearing flange. The inside face is machined flat to use the rotary check valve setup compared to the E carb flange which is machined off on the side. The E carb has a small poppet valve that acts as the air check valve.

Thank you all for your help - I guess I need to find out the likelihood of finding d-carb parts, then.
