    I have a Tm k9b it has a k9c cylinder,  it has the dellorto vhsh 30mm. Has any tried the pmw 38mm Carb? I seen the electric start Tm k9es uses the  pmw 38mm Carb from the factory, can it be used on the non-electric start engine? any help or Feed back is appreciated

    I don’t see how you start the engine would make any difference to the carb. Any time I tried to put a bigger carb on something it just made more problems than it was worth, especially on a small sprint track.

    Yes, It can to be mounted, but I advise carburetor dell’orto vhsh 30mm, it’s right for this engine!!!

    A bigger carb may get you a little more top end horsepower it will come at the expense of throttle response. The smaller bore creates a higher velocity through the carb. This higher velocity of air aloows the jets and such to be much more responsive at partial throttle.
