Carb Tech Solution cheap carb rebuild kits CTS
« on: March 12, 2014, 10:37:58 pm »
I found a new source today for carb kits that I'm all excited about. It's a company callled Carb Tech Solution and they have the best prices on carb kits I've seen. Also free shipping on most.

Many of the complete kits are 3-4 bucks and gasket only kits are like $1.99. Check em out.

I ordered a bunch of carb kits and some primer bulbs, etc. Paid with PayPal.

Carbtech21.com  ??   I'm curious to see the product, post some pics when you get them!
What's the shipping time? Address listed for returns is a small residential house in Garden Grove, Ca. Seems odd, but maybe not... Maybe the parts are "drop shipped" from China? In any case keep us posted

I have seldom been happy with aftermarket kits. Easier and cheaper to do it right the first time.

Yes, this is the link http://www.carbtech21.com/default.asp

I've never had an issue with any carb kit other than losing parts from my own ineptness. So some people don't use Stens kits?

Anyway, I haven't received anything from the company yet but I have quite a few kits coming (a dozen or more) plus some primer bulbs, etc.

I deal with some cheaper saws and the ability to rebuild the carbs for cheapo is important. For instance on the Poulan 2000 series saws that I fix up and sell for $45.00. I don't want to invest too much into them. They almost always need fuel lines and usually the carb at least cleaned and usually new diaphragms.

I've used some no-name diaphragms they have held up OK.

I've tried some aftermarket kits out of curiosity in my own saws. I couldnt tell the difference in them and OEM.

Received the shipment today via priority mail. It came fast. I haven't used any yet. They don't look any different to me...

I tried forester, stens, and oregon kits.  didn't have any problems with any if them but Zama and walbro kits aren't much more. Stens kits are almost  the same cost as OEM.  Average cost on full kits is somewhere around $8 retail with some down around 6 for oem so in a shop is just easier going oem.  Repairing poulans to sell I would be jumping all over $2 kits

Zamas are the worst to find .Those rascals have so many models and if each and every number is not the exact match they will not work.Drives me nutz.

Usually  I just buy the basic kits with only the diaphragms and gaskets.Here of late I've noticed a good many newer kits have the check valve assemblies made of a mylar type material rather than the old buna-n type paper or cloth .I assume this type has been upgraded to be more robust  against ethanol deteriation.
