    I do not know, other than a local lawnmover repair shop that carries or can order the carb. Perhaps a B & Stratton website can help you.

    I also have the same model and yes its a pain to start. Right now mine won't even fire and I can't seem to find the spark plug. Is Champion RN4C the right one? In reply to your last reply, my Scotts has a Tecumseh engine not a B&S?

    Ito own a Scotts model# 229630x8b
    it does start but you have to continue to PRIME it to keep it running..while until it warms up.....normaly in 5 min. Yeah great fun.
    You would think the price you pay for this thing you should be able to use it more the 25 times eith out problems....

    Also try http://www.murray.com/
    They made many of the Scotts walk behind mowers. Although they don't show this model you may be able to find a similar model with common part mumbers.
