Re: FS44 Carb issue on limiter caps !
« on: April 13, 2014, 11:26:50 am »
here's a few pics of the mixture needle area....the red cap was on the H needle.....the trimmer showed up without the l casp installed so I don't know if it's a different color/tab style...I went to local rental shop and met with the mechanic in the back just before they closed for the rest of the weekend and we dug thru his box of throwaway carbs and was able to find a few more red limiter caps ..... we also explored the possibility of retro fitting to mixture needles with springs but no dice  on this model carb ( it's a WT492 by the way)...out of all the Walbro's he had in that box the threads were larger ? This model carb has very tiny threads so it won't happen on the retro fit....so I just adjusted while hot...let it cool...tested again until hot (actual trimming in my yard to place a load) and reinstalled the red limiters on both needles and called it good for now......
