any one using carburator model 167?
I have a g23 engine with that carb. Is the carb any good or junk?

I know model #643 is a good carburator but unsure about the 167.

should I toss it and get myself a model 643 so that i don't have the headache

anyone have the model 643 laying around? I can take it off your hand.

thanks,

JG


It was in the air, but now it's on the ground. :)

Personally........

I prefer the WT643.

Call Bergen Helicopters....they seem to have the best price I've found......

167a

I flew the 167 for about 6 years and 1200 flights. No problems with it once you set it right.

Most people nowadays like the 643 as it is bigger bore and it gives a little more power, like probably 10% would be my estimate. It also consumes more gas. If you are looking for mileage, the 167a might not be a bad idea, if you want as much power as possible, get the 643.
