Onan Emerald 4.0 BGE Carburetor for Ancient Winnebago Brave

Our mobile repair guy is having a very hard time finding a new carburetor for our 1994 Winnebago Brave. It is an Onan Emerald 4.0 BGE spec K and it barely runs (rough - sputters and gasps).

Apparently these are no longer made and we certainly don't want to spend thousands on a new generator. P/N 146-0633

Do any of you nice folks have any suggestions?

Thanking you in advance for your time!

Remove fuel line in front of pump. Put new gas in a tin can add a good shot of Seafoam. Stick fuel line in can start gen. let run till can is empty, if still running rough repeat.
Change the spark plug.

Good Luck
