best 1bbl kohler carb
« on: January 29, 2013, 11:38:51 AM »
ok kohler guys, i am playing around with an idea, and i need some advice/part#'s. i want to know which 1bbl carb with the throttle blades opening on a horizontal plane, and with the bolt mounting pattern that is NOT straight across from each other( they are diagonal), you like best. i have looked around alot, and have seen many different ones, and would like to know which one is preferred for racing, and what part# it is. you can also pm me with your advice if you like, thanks- Jim.

Drew, they look to be off the cv twins....i am not sure about the singles though. i have seen nikki, and keihn, but many differences between themselves.

I always throw the one barrel carbs in a pile when building a v-twin and go with either the two barrel or twin tillotsons, depending on the class. I probably have a few of them if you want one

are all of the 1bbl carbs "garbage"? this is not for a kohler twin....i am just playing around with something, and i want to use a 1bbl carb that has the throttle blade that is on a horizontal plane. the intake manifold i am trying to match the carb up to, has the mounting holes that are diagonal, and i want to use a mower carb with the same mounting design. i may have to look at using a tilly, but then the throttle blade wont be on the horizontal plane that i want...it would be on the same plane as the mounting holes :(  so if there is a better 1bbl, i want to try it and see if it works for what i want. thanks again for all the help. Tyler, let me know what you have, and what you need for it....if you have more than 1, that is cool too :D

They are probably my least favourite carb. I should have loads of them in boxes around here as well.

Try a muffler adapter pipe from a 28 or 31-cube Briggs.  Helps!
