briggs and stratton 19,5hp on a john deer lawn tractor la115 motor model#31p677-0140-b1
Expert:  Hank F. replied 1 month ago.

Ok.

There were 2 different carburetors used on this engine.

I will need the date code on your engine to determine which is the proper one.

Disregard that last message.

A bit of research shows that one of those carbs is a Nikki, and the other is not.

The part number of that carb is 591734, and is available from many sources online, ,such as this one:

It has also been superseded to 594603, and can be ordered through any Briggs and Stratton dealer. It is also available from many sources online, ,such as this one:
