Predator 212cc Engine Swap

I'm going to do the Predator 212cc engine swap on my Troy Bilt Storm 2410. I know the engine runs lean in the winter. Has anyone used the mega jet kit in their engine? Also what jet would I most likely need in order to get the engine winter cold ready?

I just slightly enlarged my stock main jet. Why spend extra money? I used super floss and polishing compound and I cleaned it out with carburetor cleaner when I was done. It runs great no matter how cold it gets now.

Does location make any difference in the carb jetting size? I live in NY and was going to set the carb up for winter running.

Temperature and altitude affect the jet size needed so yes, location does matter.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

its a little difficult to make jet setting adjustments this time of year. You could wait until it gets cold and then try enlarging the jet a little at at time or you can run the engine with the choke engaged slightly.

That is exactly what I did. I noticed the engine would surfe a bit when I ran it at 25 degrees Fahrenheit. I slightly enlarged the jet and cleaned it out and then it ran great
