    Not sure about those felt clunks...I bought into the recommendations and installed one on my DLE30 too.

    Haven't had a look inside my DLE30 yet but I can't imagine being able to turn the jug 90 degrees would work.
    Carb yes. Jug, No.
    Ports and passages aren't going to line up, to my way of thinking....
