Is it a HL carburetor?

Nevermind I see now, yeah I would pull it off and get the varnish out of it, I've rebuilt lots of those HL carbs, they aren't too bad to work on, just be sure you use everything that comes in the kit cause you can't miss and match old with new.

That's a fine piece of history there, it was a revolutionary saw, first saw to use the Reed valves with third port induction which morphed into their Kart motors.

I suggest not using Chinese carbs or carb kits. I have had mixed results from them.
Have to agree on the mixed results however, I'd have to add it is worth a try... I have used Chinese (designed in Japan lol) carbs on Honda & B&S Mowers. Mid-range Stihl Blowers with mostly good results. But the bad results, Jury's out on whether it was the carb or not? I used a Zama replacement on my Husky Chainsaw & it did nothing & I couldn't be bothered doing anything to find an air leak somewhere. These replacement carbs are a quick fix when you need them I guess...

Btw, the pissy plastic jets found on original carbs on the commercial Honda GXV160 engines leave much to be desired. Most Honda's over the last decade? are built in China regardless...

We've got three old Honda's, all of course say made in Japan. My Honda genset was definitely made in Japan, it even has an old Honda Car Land sticker on it from the 80's. My Kohler v2 24hp says made in China, load of crap, but it runs well. American companies need to wake up.
