If you still have the original canister ,you could drill two 1/2" holes in the top,block off the original exhaust outlet and add 2 stacks to it .If you want a pipe the link above has good parts and John is great to deal with.I bought a manifold and header fron him for my modded 30cc Ryobi /Homelite and made my own muffler.As far as a carb,most say the WA167 with an 11.11 venturi is best for a Homey,but I run a WT 387 on the Ryobi and a WT644 on a modded 25cc full crank Homelite and both perform well ,both with a 12.7 venturi.If your's is stock ,better stick with the WA 167.

Great info! I have a modified Homelite (25cc) with a WA 142, modified by Warehouse Hobbies. I just calle them, and they said it was an older style carb, but was a big bore. Question- mine is stalling from half throttle and up- is it too lean on the top end??

Also, great looking setup you have! Is that a homemade silencer you have in-line?? I'm putting in a Quad exhaust soon, and want to quiet it down some for that.

Thanks!

The WA142 has a 11.13 mm venturi,just a hair bigger than the WA167.Probably was a big bore back then ,but now most are 12.7mm,but it should run good on the homie.Try richening the high needle.I run mine really rich as when it's on the water it seems to lean out at higher throttle.The pipe is homade,made of a 1 1/2"aluminum pipe with a 3/4"x1 1/2" copper reducer fitting on one end and a cap on the other end.It has a 3/4" copper pipe in it with 1/8" holes drilled around it .The 3/4" is reduced to 5/8" brass tube,which connects to the homade exhaust outlet (which is made of copper fittings) by a piece of automotive 1/2" ID silicone lined heater hose.It's water cooled and isn't too loud.

Thanks a million!!! I'll try the pipe mod- right now I just have a 1" radiator hose from header to a Cooper silencer tip, and would like to quiet it down even more.
