i have been having problems with my carb on my os 46 fx-h so i decided to buy a new one from heliproz. I rushed the shippment and recieved it today. The new carb is a 40c with the number 1 on the lower corner; this is the same as my old carb. Shouldn't i have gotten a carb with the number 2 on th elower carb? What should i do?
thanks
dave

I thought the # 2 was the updated carb, too. I'd call them and tell them you would like to return the #1 carb for the #2 carb because you were under the impression thats what you were buying. I assumed the #2 carb was all they made now out of the two of them. Good luck!

It has been a little while, but I remember the case # was not the difference in the carbs. The only way to tell was to carefully look at the slot in the spraybar. The older version had a smooth "eye" shaped openning, and the newer version looked the same but with a notch in that openning.
For what it is worth, I had all kinds of problems with that motor. I eventually obtained a new version carb and the transition was horrible. It got way too rich at about a third stick. A better solution, for me was the airbleed mod to the original carb version and Cool Power 15%.
I'm even pretty sure I have a spare original carb that is new or basically new, if that can help.
Good luck,
Mitch
