Yes, Stihl bought Zama a short while back. Don't know aboit a dealer, if it is NLA it is NLA to everyone. However the carb is still available for like 40 dollars.

Yes the carbs are not horribly priced if you can find a dealer willing to not mark it up 100%... thanks again KRL...but still it's really a waste of a carb when 10min. & less than $5 would fix it.

I agree with that. Funny thing, the stuff that happens when one company buys another.

Recieved new carb today and the saw runs perfect. I really missed having this saw and have a cutting project in the morning but maybe someday if I'm bored I will pull this good carb,press the nozzle out and install it in another carb to really answer the question but I cant see any other difference. Until Zama/Stihl decide to sell these again I guess it doesn't really matter anyway.
