Gaskets

Trying to get a set of gaskets for stripping down the carb on, what I suspect is, an early 90s Qualcast 35sk. I've tried the place in Gateshead with no success. Any other ideas?

The make of the carburettor and an image will help.

Struggling a bit but of the three possibles, Dellorto, , Walbro/Tecumseh and Tillotson, I can only eliminate the Dellorto. 

Going to do a bit more research but meanwhile please give the carb a close examination for any numbers or even a name cast or stamped into it

EDIT

On second thoughts and looking at the shape of the choke lever, I think that it may be a Tillotson.

The bowl gasket would be  Atco Qualcast part number F016Q10076 ( Tillotson No. 16-B388X ) and if you cant find one through the usual channels, try Jon Cruse at the Hailsham Mower Centre 01323 842477 or Hugo at Rowena Motors 01248 715552.

I think you may be right. The only marking I can find is this...

Which does look remarkably like the Tillotson logo

Does look fairly approximate

Does look fairly approximate !  I’ve neither a Tillotson carb nor a good enough image to do a detailed comparison but I think that we may be on the right track.
