    can i press in a walbro jet into my zama carb. It has a fixed main jet that is .45 and I think I'd like to go to .48, but I can't find a list of zama jets. I did find 1123 121 5630, but it's Walbro. I asked this on the AS forum, but didn't get any responses. Thought it might be something a member around here knew...

    Because pictures are fun, here are some pictures of the Zama carb from the MS170.

    well, I could buy a MS250 carb and it would give me an adjustable H, but that's 20-30 bucks more on this stupid saw. If I can buy a couple of jets at 2-3 bucks each, then I'll mess to see which one gives me the results I want. Nothing crazy here, just MM and mild porting, lol.

    ever see a MS170 blow up at about 16,000RPMs? you might get your chance....
