Bad Better Best

Honda PISTON, VACUUM 16111-KR3-671

Bad Above What was in it

What the Internet said was a good match replacement

What it sounded like with 23mm Vacuum piston
Pilot valve open 5 turns to keep it running without choke – would not provide power without choke on part way.


What came in the used Carb I bought.

The spring on the left came in the Used Carb

The one on the right was what was in it.


What it sounds like with correct 25mm Vacuum piston.
