I haven't found one to fit in any thing I have laying around. All a bit longer shorter fatter skinnier taller or something. The only one that fits is the one next to it with the claw marks on it.
HH has the whole carb for 80. No kits or individual needle assemblys. Back ordered since 2016.

so you are saying that the needle valve Assembly from a 182 won’t work in that carburetor.
i guess what I am saying is that I have jab this problem before and the spray bar gets bent and nothing will work.

As I stated the Engine code for the 90-T is Q, the link I showed is for the Q and the AA which is the 100-T. Search Horizon for Saito Q and it comes up as in stock.

I don't have a 182 here to compare. The 150s I have are different.

No unfortunately, my saitos start at FA56 and end at FA 150 and GK150.

No. I am saying I don't have a 182 to compare it to.

Hey Hobbs thanks. That's helpful. So if the Q is the 90 that link has got to be it.
I just revisited this thread. I checked that link and tried to verify it with HH.
Twice I have been told it is unavailable.
I had contacted them on it before you sent it to me by a search for the part. A rep told me he thought it was the right part but was not sure, and was on long term backorder. Unavailable.
I just instituted a chat with a hh rep after following your link all the way back to HH. He was helpful, but he couldn't verify the part in the link would fit a FA 90T.
Unfortunatly i don't think either he or i are up on the engine codes as you are.
When asked to ship the part number in the link. He indicated it was unavailable and on back order. And suggested I call the tech department again tomorrow.
I was sure hoping I could just pay the lady and get the part.
Not so easy.
Sooo
I did as you suggested. Typed "Q" into HH search engine.
Followed links to cash register. Checked out with part in cart. Presto!
See what hits the box in a couple days....
Thanks

Horizon used to have some knowledgeable folks there, but no more.

Yup
there has been a lot of questions asked here that the HH should have been able to answer. However this group knows ten times what those guys know.

They don't even know how to use their own system to find parts, that's pretty sad.

I blame the merger with Hobbico, all the smart good employees of both companies left!

OK, I, out of curiosity, pumped three full pump strokes of Corrosion X into the 60 twin through the vent. It went in easily. It is now nearly ready to fire up.

Ok I, out or curiosity, read the old PDF manual for the 90T and learned Saito is pretty emphatic about 20% lube and some nitro.. Same bearings same piston and cylinder materials overall, what gives out more often in these that they are flooding it with lubricant?

I think he is trying to prevent a dry start up. You want to have some lubrication in the bearings,, etc. when you crank it over the first time.
