Question SC52-FS Needle v OS FS52 Needle Compatibility?

Hi all
I have a damaged needle (HS Fuel Needle) on my SC52-FS, Does anyone know if the OS FS52S or another similar Needle will work as a replacement?
Thanks

I really haveno idea if the OS needle will fit, but I doubt it.

BUT... Virtually all SC (and ASP or Magnum) needles ONLY differ in the needle taper, meaning that in a inch any needle will do. Worst case you will have a more sensitive needle (if the donor engine was larger than yours) but chances are, if you find a needle of a smaller engine it will be finer adjustable.

There should be thousands of unused or discarded cheap chinese ASP/Magnums out there.

Hi there 1967brutus,
Thanks for your input (been a long time dear chap !!)
I have a couple of needles given to me since I posted this question but haven't had a chance to try them yet.
Hoping to run the engine this weekend.
