Is there a way/tool to put in a new welch plug without buying the Walbro tools?

sure, if you have a flat end nail driver thats small enough it will work. You want to bend it enough for it to stay in, not hammer it flat

getting the original out requires some care, its pretty easy to damage the ports beneath it

As I've been quoted many times, a carb costs $35. If I suspect there's something wrong with the carb I just replace it with a known good one. If the problem stops I throw the old one away. This doesn't happen very often and you can spend HOURS trying to find the small piece of debris thats causing whatever problem you have.............IF its even a carb problem.

Found a possible shortcut to the installation of the welch plug. My repair it came with a smaller one than necessary. So, I got a hex wrench insert and used one of smaller welch plugs to spread the load of the hammer. Just a couple light taps and it's in!

Century HWC Extreme Pro G29 has additional tube conecting the carburator to the crank case. Any idea what for is it?

yes it is a boost port for the pump diaphragm.

the intent is to ensure full pump volume even at higher RPM's

its just a vacuum pulse

I have just finished reading your carburator bible :-) Beautiful piece of work.
Now I see its connected to pulse chamber.

The tube is connected on the bottom for crankcase, maybe it changes the phasing to match pulse with intake. I wonder if the original pulse port is left opened.

Default Source for Rebuild kits for Zama and Walbro

Guys- I found your site, via a google search for Walbro Primer not filling up after carb rebuild. If anyone has any suggestions please post. I can't get the primer bulb to pull fuel. Filter clean and the metering lever appears to be level where it should be. It could be the age of the plastic primer on this WT-220.

Anyway-- a good cheap source for rebuild kits.. About $5.00 each for the diaphrams, and $10.00 each for the rebuild kits containing hardware and gaskets is mowers4U.com These are original kits, not the aftermarket knock offs.

No I don't work there, but this small buisness in New York has shipped these kits to over 50 countries at a fair price.. Give them a day to get to your e-mail, as it's one lady Sharron running the internet store, while her husband Jeff, owns and operates a small power equipment store in New York..

yes they are both open and working. The second line is intended as a boost pulse at high rpm

I actually know how these carbs work now!!! Amazing and simple but a complicated way to do a simple job. The primer bulb was of most curiosity to me.

Thanks Carey

I have a few questions about the 811 on my G20EI. I am not new to tuning engines, but the needle settings on this one are nowhere near the initial settings listed for the engine. I know most of the time these settings are just ball park settings and that adjustment is needed. But I am 1/2 to 3/4 turn in from initial on both high and low needles. I am running coleman fuel if that matters. I know the needle adjustments are touchy as well, but I can barely touch the low needle and the engine dies. I did purchase the engine used and think the needles have been screwed in too tight at one point and may have damaged the seats. I have a new carb on the way to my house to see if that makes a difference.

well good idea on swapping the carb. As you've read I keep a spare one around and use it for diagnostics

the G20's are notorius for air leaks on the intake and cranks seals. One way to test is to run the motor and spray something like WD40 around the intake, crank and case gaskets seals. If its leaking the RPM will change. Be careful though

We had a heat wave around here today ( 29F ) and I got the new carb installed at the recommended needle settings. Took my heli out to try it out again. It ran pretty good, idled nice, responded correctly to needle adjustments. I was starting to think the coleman fuel wasn't all it's cracked up to be.

I am still a bit on the rich side running 1650 rpm with 640 woodys, just hovering around my yard a bit and a few low level climbs for about 15 minutes and I have a little over half tank of fuel left. I'm lovin it! Now I can get my gov settings figured out, but after I get rough throttle curves set up without the gov on.

carley as many others have said Thank's for taking your time to Help. Thought I had my heli tuned in pretty good (thanks to your videos), But due to events in Life, it as sat for several months got it out this weekend and tried for several hours to get it to run It'll fire up and run for a few seconds and die, I've got fresh fuel and new plug no help After reading though this post I'am taking your advice again and ordering some new carbs, rather than attempt to repair for now I actually found some 30 dollar carbs, Heck I ordered 2 along with some other spare gaskets Again Thanks Carely

Definitely a very good "tutorial"!

The only thing I was lacking was a graphical on the flow through the primer. But having had my carb apart just now, I see it just sucks fuel from the fuel reservoir and sends it all through to the return line, and in that way priming the fuel reservoir.

I noticed my primer sucks a lot of air in, but I came to the conclusion that air gets sucked in directly at the primer betwen the primer "button" and the primer base.

I have had quite some problems getting an engine to run, but tonight I installled a reed valve between the carb and the crankcase, and suddenly the engine started running just fine

Thought it was a carb issue, but clearly it wasn't
