If anyone has 2 good/working carbs that will fit the .65 (.622'' neck) I will buy them in a heartbeat.
I put a link to the Perry carbs up there.
If I wanted to spend $100 on a carb, I'd buy 2 new K&B carbs. I am not in a hurry, so I'm hoping to find 2 identical used carbs. Preferably SuperTigre carbs if they even make a carb with a .622" neck. Otherwise I'd take 2 OS carbs or if TT has a carb that fits. Perry is a last resort... If by May I havent found anything, I'll order 2 new carbs.
I have a couble of .60ish carbs, sans engines, I will check the neck size.
These Sportster .65's have unusually HUGE
carb fittings.. The guy at my local plane/heli shop said something along the lines of "Holy crap thats huge!".
The base is .622" and the venturi is .334". A slightly bigger venturi doesnt bother me since the muffler extensions have pressure taps.
I compared my carb's internals (visually) to Hobbsy's Sportster .65 carb and they look identical. Supposedly the Drone engines have botched up carbs. Rumor has it a new Idle disk might fix my problems, but I'm not in the position to throw $40 into the wind since the Barrel might be part of the problem as well. A new barrel (and carb housing comes with the barrel as a set) and idle disk costs as much as a whole carb from Mecoa.
Edit: This forum is really getting aggravating with all the errors and timeouts. It took me almost a half hour to post this. For how much sponsorship this site gets, you'd think they'd be able to get their server problems sorted out a lot quicker than they are.
