    Disassembled everything. Eyeballing both jets side by side with a magnifying glass, they both appear to be the same length. I'm stumped! I'll try to source a washer or an o-ring and give it a shot. Nothing to loose at this point.

    Definitely require a good small slot screwdriver. The one I have is getting me through a pinch but find it's a little on the small size and have to be very careful with it. I'll try and get a good set of peepers to look at the jet to make sure there's no damage. From what little I can see it's fine.

    At this point it makes me wonder whether or not the tube that holds the nozzle and jet are different lengths for both carbs. The Predator 212 is closer to the GX200 though the 200 and 160 are mostly the same. Baffled to say the least.

    Andy, in the event there is a difference in length between the two, are there certain materials I should either use or avoid, as a spacer, when used with fuel?

    I didn't want to question John on his work. I just assumed both jets are the same length. Looking at them both I could have sworn his jet was factory. Very clean and look identical to me.

    Being it isn't closing off, this is definitely something to look for with a simple solution. I have the munchies being I've had little to eat today. Curiosity is getting to me. Gonna grab something to eat and go tear into it tonight. I'll let you know my findings.

    Hi Andy,

    I was just answering another PM and saw your old one and I couldn't remember how we left off. Did you end up getting one of these? I only have 4 left for the 32" HSS.
