Get an htb pipe and header along with the K&B 11cc disc carb for good bolt on performance upgrade. You will have to cut your lower a bit to make room for the header if you are not already running a pipe. You can get what you need from Joe at 707specialties. Check his web site for pics and prices. Good luck and show us some pics just ordered another nova 46 ob for myself
happy boating

Thank you for the reply. Tried the 707 specialties site and the one I tried does not come up.

years back we used the k&b carb[#4049 i think].was a metal carb used on a k&b 40.drilled the needle valve out with a #53 bit,we did'nt care about the idle and this would make this motor fly.work with exhaust too.

I run 50% nitro with a M 59 plug. Is this a good combo or is there a better one?
