Question about carb

Postby sford » Mon Jul 07, 2014 1:52 pm

Need to do a rebuild on one of my carbs and noticed the following:
Note: This kit does not include the Main Jet because there is a choice of two. If you need a main jet, please go to part # FTC1461 for Cubs from 1947 to 1956 or to part # FTC1463 for Cubs from 1957 and later.

My question is are the carbs different or only the main jet. Will the carb from an earlier cub work with a newer cub. What if you put the wrong jet in, how would you know, etc.

The main jet, the discharge tube and the bleed are matched to one another. If you can make out the # on the flat surface on top of the float bowl you will know which you should have. A lot of aftermarket kits have been installed that probably mismatched the parts, but it seems that it has not caused problems except in a few instances. That may be because a lot of Cubs are not running up to spec. Too small a jet and the engine may act like it is fuel starved, too large probably just wastes a little gas.
