Primed it 7 or 8 times and it finally fired up and stayed running. Of course it was boggy and needed about half throttle to stay running and wouldn't spool up much but I'm assuming that's because...

Thanks for the advice. (And to everyone else.) I have the needles out L 1.75 and H 2 so it should be very rich. I'll give it a shot at some point this weekend and see what happens.

I'm in the same boat. I'd have to completely disassemble the front end to get the engine out and remove the carb. You think if I prime it a few times and get it running it will resolve itself?

So you think it should be drawing fuel even though it's a brand new carb and the diaphragm is dry?

I don't know if it counts as a tuned pipe, but I have a Jtec Pitts muffler on it.

This is a new replacement Walbro carb. I can't do much troubleshooting unless I can get it running. :)

Thanks for the replies. Rather than just rebuild the carb, would it make sense to replace it with an authentic Walbro carb from Valley View?

If you do think a rebuild will be enough, what's the...

It's through aluminum and all I have is a black and decker thingy. I think I'd mess it up.

Thanks. Ordered the hangar 9 one as well. I'll see which one I prefer when they show up. I like the idea of not having to still mounting holes for the engine.

Got the old mounting holes filled, used the leftover epoxy to fill in a couple of small gaps on the firewall. Drilled new mounting holes, and I'll be trying to install the mount and engine tonight.
