On a similar note, I need a backplate gasket for a COMO .40. A Super Tiger would do as well.

Thanks in advance.

Cut a new one from an index card or manila envelope, or just use a thin bead of sensor safe RTV silicone.

I cannot offer any assistance on the thread size for the previous post, but Id suspect it to be an ISO standard metric thread. Probably 2.5mm or 3mm would be my guess.

The pitch will likely be .50mm - which AFAIK is standard pitch for small metric screws.

I think you're talking about this Super Tigre spray bar: the threads are 5 mm x .5 pitch.

Woops, I'm on the wrong side of the carb.

Best I can do for now of photo of carb if you scroll back to this post and the needle closest in the photo is the one I meed

It would be .5 pitch if a 4 mm screw, I no longer have that engine nor a carb like it. Sorry.

With a crank that short, I’d suspect it was intended for buggy duty despite
having an airplane style head on it.
