I'm the right guy but sometimes I get notionsome, as Festus Hagen would say and do strange things. I borrowed the carb from my Tartan 1.34. The 1.50 was already CDI'd thanks to Dan.

More details please. Glow or gas (choke, gag)? Carb mods if for glow? ECDI? Performance? Video? Thanks.

The ignition is a 1997 C&H unit with SynchroSpark, Dan provided the trigger wheel and the Hall effect sensor.

Always good for a laugh or three.

The other day I asked my daughter what she did with her sock. She pointed out the window to a stick in the ground and there was her sock. She told me she made me a windsock for my birthday.

I have a pitts for some kind of saito, It came with my 125 but its not the proper one for it. I think it has a 12mm threaded nipple for it.

LSN is most likely too lean. Also make sure you have the right size prop, too small a prop can affect the idle in the gas engine. One other thing to check is the filter screen, you pull the cover off the carb and there is a screen in there. there could have been some gunk in the tank that got sucked in to the carb and cause some blockage.

I take it this is a new engine. If so it takes quite some time before everything starts to work properly. Run a few 12 ounces tanks through it and it will start running and priming better.

I honestly dont know how this is supposed to work with the listed engines unless the exhaust is on the left of the engine.



EDIT, OK I looked for a 120 and found the FG30B which is the 180 case and found the exhaust comes out the rear, so this is the correct muffler for the 120, 150 and 180.

Yeh and my idea is to be stuck in an old home for the frail where you need someone strong to lift you on and off again,that and pinin for the smell of a saito on castor.

ps pearl look at the soft keleo exhausts made for saito

I have an FA-180. Please PM me for what you want for this muffler. Thank you.
