Main Jets for Techumsey Engines

rolmJuly 15, 2010

I see numbers on the buttom of the jets example 169 or 172 or 174, is the larger jet with the higher or lower number.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Rolm: My working knowledge indicates that the Higher number indicates
Larger Jet Eg: Mikuni #140 , #160 , #180 Main Jets were sized accordingly . Same with Keihein and Walbro Smooth Bore which required re-jetting even when a temp change of 20-30 let alone Barometric Pressure via Altitude Changes occurred back during my Snowmobile Racing Days lol . I would assume same for your application , have you checked the Tecumseh Site ?
