Supertigre Carb Question

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have 2 older (made in Italy) .45 engines in a twin that recently went down inverted and the only apparent damage to the carbs is both needle assemblies have been bent and pulled out of the carbs.

My question is will the new carbs for the Chinese Supertigres fit on the Italian ones?

I asked (via email) engine support at Great Planes who now owns ST and they don't know and didn't offer any help.... so much for "support" I guess.... Before I try calling them and possibly getting passed around and playing phone tag I thought it wise to post here!!

Better yet, anyone know where to get 2 needle valve assemblies for mine?


Did you see that........I actually meant to do that...

If all else fails, you can get some perry carbs for it.

Great Planes is pretty lousy at support. Don't expect much from them.
