    jet drilling?

    Do they sel drill bits to drill out a jet or a rejet kit for ohv lawn mower engines. My turd costco champion engine`s jet is a touch too small and falls on its face when i open the choke. I pulled the carb apart and my guess is the jet.

    What engine company is this? someone said honda, now from my experience with small honda engines on motorcycle are total piles. this is a nonadjustable carb. I mean it`s a nice engine but wtf. I kinda thought it was too lean.
