Good but I lost the spring in the carburetor but I got one ordered
This is a true mikuni, bolted it up to my Tillotson 212. So much better than the TCT carb for ungoverned engines.
Haven’t actually tested it, but so far it looks really nice on the engine. The stock carb on the tillotson is really small compared to the Mikuni. The design of the throttle is cleaner and more smooth then stock. Can’t wait to actually test it
Not installed yet, but overall the quality of materials and workmanship is impressive.
I had one of the knock-offs. No comparison. Go online and find a mikuni tuning guide. Read it however many times it takes for you to understand what each changeable part and jet does and therefore, how the carburetor works. No carburetor is plug and play unless you just happen to get lucky. Buying a couple sets of the main and pilot jets is likely all you will need at that point to get your engine running better than you imagined it would. You’ll be the guy answering all the newbie questions at that point
It is a Real Mikuni.. unfortunately it was lightly wrapped in Plastic wrap and tossed in a bubble wrap shipping envelope.... I was very disappointed in the way it was shipped. I would have opted for it to be put in a box...
I was pleasantly surprised when I got the carb and verified it was the real deal.
If your bowl continually overflows, you need the smaller needle and seat that they sell here at GPS. Also, you may still need to install a fuel bypass line that goes back to your tank to relieve the extra fuel pressure from your pulse pump. After I did this, my carb was perfect and my Tillotson 212 ran great!
With the gov. removed, ported head, and cam this carb made a huge difference on how fast the engine revs! Very Happy! If running a pulse pump you have to change the needle seat it will not right.
