Hello, BOC -
So, the carb on my Westerbeke 12.5 BTG genset has become "unrepairable / unrebuildable" according to my mechanic, who also just happens to be a Westerbeke dealer and who also just happens to recommend a new generator for me because the carb is no longer available. Well, I think maybe it would be wise for me to have a look around to see whether I can dig up a suitable replacement carb rather than drop a lot of boat units on a new genset. However, I've been scouring the internet for several days, but no joy on finding the carb. I believe the part number is 33751RO or 33751. Anybody have any ideas about where to find one of these gems?

Sincerest thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

Regards,
Sandy Slider

I think he is having a lend of you in this case.

seem to have the parts you may need.
A carby is not a difficult thing to service and repair unless something major like cracks in the body.
I would strip it down check for blocked jets and varnish from old petrol (gas).
I have restored old motorcycle carbs that were over 80 years old and once cleaned up and checks for worn parts etc they all worked fine.
Look at the diagram on the above site and I am sure you will be able to repair it.
Good luck.
