    A 20mm Chinese clone of a Keihin with a 89 main jet will work great. Check 20mm carb and 20mm carburetor on ebay. One of the sellers lists the specs, including main jet size.You have to make or find an intake. The one I put on the Sears mini I'm starting is a vertical tecumseh intake of some kind. I matched it to my ports, but it was close. I think it came from a 4.75-6.5hp vertical tecumseh. It raises the carb and puts a 90 in it so it points out to the side.

    Here's my motor with a Tillotson. Eventually I will have a foam racing filter setup.
    Tillotson intakes run $35-$40, and Carbs are cheap on ebay if you are patient.

    Well, I'm glad to see you aren't losing your memory.

    The sad thing is, I might be losing mine.

    Thanks guys, I'll keep my eyes open for somthing, "5 Horse" nice usage of the tupperware. I used to use them for radio boxes in my R/C race boats to keep the servo's and transmitter etc.. dry. They worked pretty good
