    new guy needs some help

    I have a 98 John Deere 345. It has the FD590V 18HP liquid cooled kawasaki V twin with a 54in deck. I also have a 48in snow blade. The tractor has 490 hours on it. I bought it a little over 3 years ago and I thought it was only a year or 2 old by how immaculate this thing is.
    So now that you guys know a little about my machine I have to ask for some advice. Just a few weeks ago it started sputtering on occasion and when I turned it off it was dripping gas out of the carb. So I need to get this fixed ASAP and one of my friends is a really good mechanic and said if I get a carb rebuild kit he would clean and rebuild the carb. My problem is I cant find a place to buy a carb rebuild kit for this thing to save my life. Where would you guys recommend I get a carb rebuild kit?

    javjacob, I've had REALLY good dealings with this place. Model number of the engine would be good to have if you call them.

    Edit: If you call them, just for grins check the price of a new carburetor.
