Why do you need a carb? I can see it in there past the missing air cleaner, and they're usually pretty easy to clean. You can see your Model 8837-0 air cleaner assembly parts here: https://www.partstree.com/models/g4000-8837-0-generac-3-600-watt-portable-generator/air-cleaner-assembly-0/

Looks like you need parts 2, 3 & 4... You can also probably substitute a Briggs/Kawasaki Air Cleaner from a similar sized motor.
Here's the cover: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Generac-Portables-Parts-22065189-Air-Filter-Cover-Generator-GEN-22065189/361947292965?hash=item5445bd6525:g:zJMAAOSwKKZeDrrY
I think this might be the filter (can be trimmed): https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-Pair-Generac-OEM-Air-Filter-Element-0G84420151-Parts-for-GP5500-Generator/173850478022?_trkparms=aid%3D1110004%26algo%3DSPLICE.COMP%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200220094952%26meid%3D895a2d0575d6473faebb57ee0dd7d35d%26pid%3D100008%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D361947292965%26itm%3D173850478022%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3Ddefault%26brand%3DGenerac&_trksid=p2047675.c100008.m2219
You can easily cobble up a plate to fit in there from the parts drawing. Note that there should be a solid block in front of the air inlet to the carb.

Were a replacement available I would forego the hands-in-cleaner option [even with nitrile gloves] for a simple dry exchange.

Have the filter assembly removed for start spray.
Won't stay running longer than the spray and line not clogged. Classic sat too long with no preservative in fuel.

Thanks for input regardless.
