Model # should be stamped into one of the valve covers, top or side

Double check the model number you posted. Could it be 407777-0128E1.

looks like it's either a carburetor with a manual choke

Briggs & Stratton 791230​

or a choke-a-matic carburetor

Briggs & Stratton 796258​

I think it has 791230 attached to it according to the list..........?? I think you take just as much of a chance ordering parts......that's why i just buy a new one, then if they are the same thats good....and if not, maybe i can get one out of two.........I do have a manual choke,,,,,,,
