OS 160FX remote needle location question
 
I have an OS 160FX and would like to move the high speed needle to a better location than sticking out the top of the cowl. The instructions say you can use a remote location, but what is the limit? Is there a rule of thumb as to how far away from the carb I can go with it? I will be installing a Perry VP30 pump as well, so maybe location doesn't matter since it will more less be pressurized. Am I right?

If you got a pump on it would not matter as there will be enough pressure

Thanks for the input. That's what I was hoping someone would say, that was my thought on it as well.

Hi!
On my GP GEE BEE R-2 I have the high speed needle 15cm from the carb and notice no difficulties.
Tried the same on my OS .26 fourstroke without silencer pressure but used only 5cm distance...didn't work at all[:o].
