Default MVVS 58 Carby orientation

Hi All,

Is it acceptable to rotate the carby 180 degrees on an MVVS 58?

The instructions say 90 degrees is acceptable but I'd like to go 180 degrees.

The engine will be mounted inverted in a Yak 54.

Cheers
Jason.

With inverted engine, you can rotate the carb 180° if you like. In fact, you can rotate it in any position, though some reported a bit more difficult starting due to fuel dripping out of the carb instead of into the engine where it was needed most.

Thanks Guys,

I was concerned about the angle of the carby allowing fuel to run into the fuse. Having the carby angled upwards should prevent this.

Cheers
Jason.
