New Brunswick DLA-56 Parts

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I recently purchased a DLA-56 engine off this site and found a number of parts defective or missing including the Walbro carb (WT644) idle needle and the idle adjust screw.

Can anyone recommend a parts supplier other then the DLA manufacturer (who are slow responding). I'd prefer someone in Canada but will go stateside if that's the better place to go.

Re: DLA-56 Parts

Don't worry about the idle adj screw. I always take them out and let the throttle servo do the work. Just a sug. Good luck

Re: DLA-56 Parts

Here in Camrose, rural Alberta I would try my local small engine shop. Walbro carbs, and parts are less expensive than at a hobbyshop, and usually in stock.

Hope this helps, Dale.

Re: DLA-56 Parts

Thanks to all those who responded. After much searching around, I finally found a supplier in the states who had stock. It seems everyone can get the part I needed but no one carries stock at least locally.

Now that I've got the necessary parts I hope to bench test the engine this week,

Thanks again,
