I have used the 385/90 intake boot to put the XT Walbro RWJ-4 (RWJ-4 now made by Tillotson called now RWJ-4-1) carb on a non XT saw. The boot looks to be too big but it pulls up tight and seals well. I think Spike60 had a post that said you could put an XP jug on an XT bottom end but the opposite was not possible because of some difference in the deck height of the case. I will try to find that thread for you.

Thanks, I found Spike60 info in the 372cases thread.

So did you use the 372 Clamp or the 385 Clamp?

IIRC, I used the 372 clamp, the reason was the 385 would not tighten far enough.

Try this place www.partstree.com Are you going to use the XT carb? If you are not you don't need the carb boot, clamp, choke rod or filter holder just use the XP stuff. The XT carb has offset mounting holes like a Tillotson the XP carb has them in a flat plane. Tell us what you plan on doing, perhaps we could be of more help.

Looking at mounting the XP PC to a Xtorq case.
Using the XT carb and filter.
Thinking all I should need is the PC, Intake boot, and clamp for the swap.

I believe you are correct, you will also need the XT filter horn and you will need to remove the divider from the filter horn.

I cut a piece of 1/4 inch aluminum tubing about 4 inches long and insert a small screwdriver down through it to adjust the carb on my new XT.  Mash the spring down with the tube then adjust.    Mine surged while idling when new.   3/4 turn on the L side cured that.  I turned the H side about 1 turn out.  They are right, don't use the decomp.  Even then you still miss the pop sometimes.  Never pull over 4 times with choke on and you be alright. I was disappointed when I first got it.  It would not outcut my old 181se.  It will now.   It takes awhile for it to break in.  I am very pleased with it now.

Tree trimmers came around my house last summer and the ground saw was a 372XT. I thought they were going to wear out the pull cord jerking on that thing trying to start it. The kid would flood it every time.

So finally got around to this.

Thank you KilliansRedLeo for the help on what parts.

Parts needed 372XP P/C.
385 xp intake boot
385 throttle cable/carb clamp and insert washer.
372xp intake band clamp.

Used a wood chisel to remove the air filter horn divider.
Reassembled and adjusted the carb.

Now to get it in some wood and see the results.   :)

So I have a few gallons of mix through this xtorq to xp now.

Runs good and I am happy with the upgrade.

It can be fickle to adjust the carb, I think that comes from running this large a bore carb to cc's.
Once adjusted the throttle response is fine. No bog spots across the throttle range.
