Their is a hole on the back of the wt215 that needs sealed up I used JB weld. Compair to original carb to see which one is not their. Their is pics in original thread if can be found. Don't remember why brass plug needed removed, to open correct passage I think I know I removed it. This was done on ms180. Runs great also did muff mod.ok so will the 215 carb bolt right on a basic ms 170 or do you have to modify it?i thought scott said it bolted right on to his..... he never said he did anything else but tune it and mod the muffler...... suppose i need to go find that thread and browse it again.....
I just ordered an adjustable carb from Huztl on ebay ($10.00+ship). I'll report how it works once it arrives.Thanks for the bump, Brad.
I just read through this thread and am now in search of a reasonably-priced carb (I am in Canada!) so that I can do this mod on my MS170.
It will be nice to clear the trails I ride with a saw that doesn't want to bog down when it feels wood.
Did you have to modify the throttle rod? I can't see how I could get it on without taking handle apart to get the other end of the throttle rod free. It's pretty tight in the carb air box!I just installed one of the Huztl ebay fully adjustable carb's on a 017 works great and is nicely made, I paid under $10 including shipping.
You have to take the handle apart to replace the carb just remove the linkage from the trigger, no linkage mod required, it's easy to do.Did you have to modify the throttle rod?

The carb itself looks very good. The Stihl one, non-adjustable, I'm replacing is also made in China!
