crazy thing was when we tore 2 of them down at the same time on my bench and really compared things, the complete engine from FT did not have the same cylinder and piston as the standard bore of each that they sell as a standalone part
I am 99% sure they don't make their own crankcases, maybe they bought the complete engine in from another vendor to resell?
its that kind stuff that makes head scratching a going concern

This inconsistency when dealing with Huztl is what's so scary. One guy made up a 660 from Huztl parts and the starter assembly was junk but everything else was excellent. It was all bought at the same time.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

another inconsistency dealing in the East
placed and paid for my last Farmertec and NWP orders on the same day
NWP arrived DHL on Friday and had a short customs hold so it arrived Tuesday :)
Farmertec order still not shipped :(
though the FT order is three times the size of the NWP order in pieces and dollars so that may be the difference

Also sent my Meteor/Caber order the same day, they acknowledged receipt but no invoice yet, however they get everything boxed ready to ship before invoicing so when I get the invoice it is usually here in 4 days
Italy is much more relaxed than China/Taiwan/Turkey  it is like new your city vs. boulder Colorado :)

Thks Dave.  You think the Farmertec/Hutzl plastic (tanks) are decent quality?

I bought a bunch of China made Stihl carb boots and fuel/impulse lines recently and the quality was very nice.

Also noticed some of the new Zama carbs on ebay had the zama name machined off of the diaphragm cover and they were being sold cheap as "copies"

Good to hear on the boots etc Adam.

I have had great luck with the tanks for MS660, MS360, MS260 (except the tank vent which ALWAYS leaks, even though they sell a replacement that is perfect), MS361, MS250, MS290 (pretty damn expensive though on that model, but I consider it an upgrade from OEM actually) and have sold a ****-ton of the 372 tanks though I never used one myself.

About10% of the 361 tanks arrive with the sole-plate popped off but it hasn't really been an issue, it is there to add a little rigidity and they admit they install with three drops of superglue :)

As Stihl shifts more OEM purchase orders to shops they own entirely and away from the franchise type Zama shops I expect to see more and more of them taking custom vintage orders on carbs like the 260 and 440 that I have had done.
Most of them literally have crates and boxes of every part needed to assemble virtually any carb from most brands complete with molded logos but contractually remove logos to avoid paying a fee to a competitor of sometimes 200%.

Good info.  Figure that was the case with the Zama and likely other parts as well.  Someone Here or AS compared a Stihl vs AM carb boot carefully and said it had the same mold marks as the Stihl part sans logo..
