HSS928CT (Canadian model)

Hey guys, I just purchased the HSS928CT as I could not find the electric start model in stock. Things I am looking to do is to
1. rejet - Can you recommend the jet size?
2. double articulating chute - is this just the little arm that swaps over from the HSS1332ATD, or do I need the whole chute?
3. hour meter - Can this be one without the battery to power it?
4. heated hand grips.

I'm coming from a 12 year old MTD pro 30" with the 10.5 Tecumseh snowking engine.

Quite a few of us are using this Tach/Hour Meter combo: https://www.ebay.com/itm/RacingPower...cAAOSwsZhcVlxC

So for fellow Canucks, you cannot get the updated chute from Canada (either the articulating or non-articulating). Since I was doing the double articulating chute, I ordered the parts from Jacks Small Engines. they have it in stock and the shipping charges are the most reasonable. The rest of the parts including the #92 jet I ordered from boats.net

I still need to figure out how to do the oxford heated grips with the battery to connect to. I was mightily impressed that the blower cleared out the hardpacked snow that had been there all winter

I have a Canadian HS 928 I ordered a 92 jet to rejet the carb. I didnt check before ordering, Turns out my Canadian already had a 92 jet in it. The HSS models may be different. But dont be surprised if it has a 92 already in it.

Prime, for what its worth, this winter I installed a new to me, HS928 tractor unit on my HS724 bucket.....the few times I could load up the machine with the little snow we did have here in Kitchener area, I found the engine searching a little..... a #95 jet got rid of the problem as tested last week in the afternoon sun drenched sugary stuff I had left around. The Honda factory new carb had a 92 jet like you found.

I opened it just a hair with a small bit, not sure the bit size but small, turned with my fingers, could hardly see a difference. When I fired it up I didnt care for the way the engine was running and I put back the 92 I dont have a real issue with performance. I was just experimenting to see if I could gain a little.

You might not have to "Re-Jet" your Canadian model, they don't have to meet the USA emissions so they can be run a little bit richer to begin with. They may already have the bigger jet in it from the factory. Check with an authorized Honda dealer to see if it already has a bigger jet than the USA models. You don't want to "Over-Jet" it, you will cause unwanted operating problems, poor power and performance and bad fuel economy, you will be using too much fuel to get the job done by running it over rich, which could cause hard starting problems and black smoke coming out the exhaust.

Surprisingly, HSS models are jetted the same GLOBALLY. We have had a couple people from other countries provide their factory jet size and itís identical to US models.
