Re: Carb Heat

Eric, you need an ecu driven ignition and fuel injection system. <br><br>Fuel consumption dropped 20% I picked up an extra 80 to 100 engine rpm and have never had carby ice, after I changed my first Raf from carb to ecu.<br><br>How is the new project coming along?<br><br>I have a guy down from the Hunter valley training at the moment.<br><br>Aussie Paul.

Re: Carb Heat

This probaly should be in the tech section - oh well.<br>   <br>   Paul, would'nt ice be still a problem in that set-up ? I have 2 Bing carbs off a 912 , it's just an experiment. Since my last post I have found that  a TRX 350 quad has heating in the carb to allow easier starting , I've ordered a couple to see if they will fit in the side of the Bings - theres a spot there that can be drilled & tapped. Will post results - good or bad. How does one attach pic?<br>  Cheers Eric <br><br>  Hopefully test runs should be this weekend ( ?!!?)
