Bought a china copy of a mikuni for 49.99 delivered. Flea Bay. Looked sort of ok and was a fifth of the jd price. squirted a bit of go juice. fired it up and gasoline came gushing out. all over the muffler.
Always clean all china copies as best you can before installation. Play with gasoline away from buildings and people, pets you are fond of.
I think you are better off buying used OEM and repairing it. For throwaway machines it is one thing, but for keepers it is something else. The mikuni broke while getting the float pin out. Not loosey goosey like walbro and briggs stuff.
The USPS, UPS, and other LTL carriers will not allow the shipment of anything reeking of gas for good reason.
Be safe.
