Can anyone get me a carburetor rebuild kit for my mikuni carberator? The carburetor is out of a 93' or 94' left hand drive mitsubishi minicab. Thanks

All I know is that when I try to turn the truck over, I can put my hand on th side of the carb and I will get my hand covered with gas. But it doesnt necessarly spew out. But my truck will not turn over because of it. Is there a possible part # to a carburetor just like mine so that I can order a rebuild kit for it? Because I cant find a number anywhere on mine. Thanks
md617058 is the # for the gasket set. It wont include any of the diaphragms or hard parts. Its just o-rings and a few flat gaskets for the body of the carb. be careful taking it apart. might try cleaning it up and running something like seafoam through it to open up the jets/ports first. The kit is close to $100 for these and you wont be able to get it anywhere but the mini dealers or a Mitsubishi auto dealership. I've got a small inventory for the trucks that i have but won't be accessable until I unpack a storage unit in a few months. sorry i can't be of more help.

Does it sound like the gaskets are the problem? I will try cleaning it out but if that doesnt work I want to be decently confident that I wont be wasting money by getting the gasket kit
If youre trying not to spend lots of money and you're fairly handy, then i would try the cleaners and be really careful taking it apart if you have to go that far. The poor running condition is due to the clogged orfices and such. The gaskets may be salvageable and o-rings can be had at most auto parts stores. I think there is only one preformed o-ring style gasket on the body of the carb that would be difficult to reproduce so, be extra cautious taking it off. everything else can be bought or fabricated with an exacto knife and some bulk gasket material. also expect to have to replace some of the screws...find the bit that correctly fits the screws to minimize damaging the heads. It's not a standard #2 philips. I think it's a pozi-drive or something "one-off" from standard. they are soft and probably seized in position. They're metric machine screws and also available all over. Get the new screws long enough to be able to cut them to fit. most wire stripper-pliers have a set of holes for trimming machine screws and these will thread in to one of the #10 spots.
