Default Tower Hobbies .61 Carburetor

I need a carburetor for a Tower Hobbies .61 which I believe, was made by
Asp or maybe Magnum. It's a two stroke engine. Please let me know if
you have one available. Thanks.

Super Tigre carbs are much better with its midrange adjustment.

Enya 40CX 13mm

Irvine .46 Mk II 13mm

I have a TowerHobbies .61 with purple head.
It crashed something like 8 or 9 years ago and broke the carb neck.
For some unknow reason, I want to overhaul it and will need a new carb.
I had a SuperTigre that only became reliable after using a O.S. carb on it. Therefore, I believe that a O.S. .61AX carb would fit and improve the reliability of my towerhobbies engine.
Does anyone knows if there is another reliable carb?
I really don´t remember anymore how this one did perform.

Thank you
Mauricio.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe your purple head Tower .61 was made by Super Tigre.
I'm not sure if any or all of them were made in Italy, or China? I remember it being rated as one of the
most powerful 60 size engines when it came out.

If you're unable to locate one try Perry Carburetors. Bill

It has CHINA writen on the backplate.
It is nearly new, since I flew like 7 or 8 tanks before crashed the plane...

Good Idea.
I have two perry pumps laying on my boxes...
Does that worn with time just like Walbro carb diaphragm?

Thanks
Mauricio
