New HL carburetor

Postby snocatpete » Sun Aug 13, 2017 5:14 pm

Earlier this spring I was surfing around the interweb and I came across this brand new HL carburetor. It has the same throat size and venturi size as the Hus=ski carburetor however it did not have a choke shaft or choke plate. It did have the boss for the choke shaft. I ended up buying it off kijiji and thought I would give it a try on a Hus-ski. I was also able to order some other misc. parts off the same website. When I received the carb I had to carefully line bore the bosses to accept a choke shaft. Then I had to drill out the boss to accept a detent spring and ball to keep the choke in the open position. Then I could assemble the choke on it. This carb has an adjustable main jet unlike the fixed jet of a Hus=ski which should not be a problem, just have to adjust it to the proper operating parameters. Having said that, I have not yet tested it on an engine (will do this this winter) but it should work just fine as all the controls are on the same side as a Hus-ski, mounting is the same, so once I try it out I can report back and let you know how it goes.
