Are you saying the tape is lifting or the paint is lifting? If the paint, what kind of paint are you using? What will be your final top coat on the covering?

When you get the WJ-71, it will probably come with a funky plastic interlock between the choke and the throttle. This is common and a carry over from the carbs original purpose. For RC use, this...

The RCexl ignition cut off switch will also function well as an electronic switch. Probably best for low current applications but it is fairly low cost.

Here are photos of the SDC 80 and WJ71 side by side. The WJ71 is on the right. Both of these have custom throttle linkages on them but everything looks like it would interchange quite easily. The...

Fiberglass 101:

When you buy fiberglass cloth or mat, it will either have a limp feel or a bit of a rigid feel. The more rigid stuff has a sort of sizing in it to help keep the fiberglass strands...

While not a direct replacement, a WJ71 as used on most of the 100 - 120 sized twins and 80 - 85 singles should work.

Excellent video though it could have been more detailed. Note the pop off range of 15 - 50 PSI they mentioned. I was surprised they made no mention of checking the pop off with a dry or wet needle....

Hmmm, going to have to disagree with part of this. First, pop off pressure has almost zero to do with how well a carb pulls fuel during starting. A tight choke plate is far more important in this...

I've run my DLE 85 on both the DLE clone carb and the Walbro WJ71. They are almost an exact copy of each other and are directly interchangeable. You may have to fashion a throttle arm for the WJ71...

K10-WJ
