For all intents and purposes, yes it’s the same. Not identical, but it still suit the engine just fine.

What you need to do is measure the neck of the carb where it goes into the engine. It’s probably a common size and can be sourced from Novarossi. A Picco carb would probably work a treat as well....

Listen, Richard, I’m just saying it’s a good thing that needle holder broke off. Nothing complicated about that.

And how many threads are there of people’s engines quitting in flight and when they move the needle valves off the engine they run fine. :rolleyes:

You don’t want the needle valve mounted to the engine anyway - it’s too easy to have nucleation bubbles show up (from vibration) that can cause all sorts of tractability problems. Mount the needle...

They’re decent engines of good metallurgy. The only problem with a few of them are poorly made carburetors. Otherwise they last a long time. I put a piston/liner from a 10 gallon MDS .40 into a...

If the piston and conrod were not separated, then install the rod onto the crankshaft so the chamfered face of the big end of the rod is facing the crankshaft the crankshaft web.

Only if the neck of the carb is the same on both engines.

Then the pricing has jumped significantly. I paid $169 for mine, and with a manifold, seals, and a 9886, I was still under $210. But they have improved the 28-8 since they stopped the Rex line and...
