    Hammering it in isn`t the way of doing it sir I prefer to grind it to fit and the glue it in with epoxy

    RE: putting different carbs on engines..?

    As far as trying different carbs on different engines, thats fine. but heating the block and hammering a carb into it is not ok.  there is a good chance of the block cracking (exspecially that engine as it is cheap to begin with- it's basically a rebadged Toki engine that you paid way too much for)  If the block doesnt crack then guess whats gonna happen when the engine warms up to operating temp? the carb will probally loosen and fall off.
