Best carb kit for 76 thru 79 Cub

Postby bkvsr » Tue Dec 20, 2016 7:22 pm

Who had the best carb kit for the late model Cubs, I read a post somewhere there was some kits that has the wrong needle valve, and what is the float setting? Also who is a reputable place to get a overhaul kit for a late model with the domed Pistons, 0.30 kit with std crank?

The kit I got from McDonald Carb came with a ruler and instructions on how to set float height on my early IH carb. Not sure about the Zenith, but I would imagine they do for that too.
