I would think that carb rebuild kits would still be available through an
Evinrude Dealer, but I might be wrong. More than likely, there's not going
to be too much to that carb and you could possible tear it apart, clean it
out with carb cleaner and maybe even save the old gaskets without having to
buy a kit. Having the proper kit is always the best way to go though.

Thanks Chad -

Not the answer I wanted--but probably true. ;-}

 I've rebuilt car and truck carbs in the past and always got some kind
of kit with all the little replaceable springs, washers and gaskets.
 It's hard top believe I could find such a thing for my Playmate. Any
