Flyer from HF has a 5.5hp vertical shaft EPA certified engine for $100. Before Hurricane Katrina Briggs carb rebuild was $50 now $150. Can anyone comment on these engines. Thanks Dan

Dan how far are you from actual destruction zone? I know many on the coast saw their insurance climb 10 times what is was pre-K. It follows that those costs get passed on to...you guessed it---or go out of business. When I was there there were many a gouging reports on local TV that your governor threatened to prosecute (up here in da nort' we call it free enterprise Laughing out loud).

As far as the engines, can't speak to that. But I did buy a chinese 1000 watt mini generator for $99 from O'Reillys Auto Parts. It has been flawless with exception of a broken pull cord--but the US importer sent a new starter and engine cover WITH somew other stuff they had issues with just in case

Ew;
I have a cousin and her husband who lived in Slidell when Katrina came thru, their house wasn't destroyed by water but by a tornado, nothing left only the slab. She said they felt very lucky first of all because they weren't home and secondly that their insurance covered the house because it was wind and not water. They never rebuilt there I don't know if because of the insurance going up but she did mention that. They came back to Iowa where they grew up and setteled here.

Sorry, I can't help with the engine question.

That carburetor has to be pretty simple. $150 seems very high unless it includes removing, reinstalling, and maybe a complete check, oil change and tuneup. Do you have the ability to rebuild it yourself? I'd guess you could buy a rebuild kit online for $25 or less. If not, you might see if you can just buy a new carburetor. A new carburetor for my Honda powered pressure washer was around $40 on eBay IIRC (not a genuine Honda but it looks the same and works better than the original ever did).
