The right Kohler coil has been proven to take 11,000 rpm by MWSC, however the smart spark coils are junk

I've soldered main jets before, it works fine.
May be some other options-
#26,28 or 30 kohler carb.  Or a KT 17 carb. All are fully adjustable, but I don't know if they
would work for you or not, maybe someone here does.
If that carb has a removable main jet you may be able to use a high altitude
jet, should be a little leaner and you could drill it out some if you had to.

No my :censored: phone autofilled what I was trying to say.... I have the stock coil on it and the flywheel is arc... I wanted a flywheel with the cooling fins on it and arc had them and super cub were all flat... Sorry about that Burwell

So if you have an arc flywheel with a Kohler coil, I'd venture to say that's your issue. Look into reading the info in the link below

That may have something to do with it? I was under the impression to had a MWSC wheel and Kohler coil

Hey I found my invoice from last year.... I have a Midwest Super Cub billet aluminm basic kit... came with the flywheel and cooling fins so that clears that up.... 275 for the kit...hmmm thought I paid more but I have a carter 30 carb coming so I will see what happens when it gets here and I'll keep yas posted..... You know it's been a long few days when you can't even remember what you bought for parts on your motor..... Oye I need sleep LOL

well kind of cleared up my top end today... I took and tapped a bowl plug and threaded a needle into the bottom of it so it could restrict fuel flow to lean it out a touch and it worked great.  Plug is burning like it should but I'm still going to put that carter 30 on it and run it.  Can't quite get rid of the low end hesitation but hopefully that carter will help me out.... Thanks for all the input guys
