Zama Carb

Posted by c3pilot (My Page) on

I have a Husqvarna 326RJX trimmer that has a Zama C1Q-EL24A carb. It wouldnt start so I thought I would go through the carb and replace the fuel lines. When I took apart the diaphram side of the carb I noticed there is not a welsh plug in the carb body by the needle valve lever. Does it need the welsh plug to run? I havent owned the trimmer since new so there is the possibility that someone else has been in the carb.

No specific help here, but I have seen those spots in the casting before that weren't used- probably for another spec. If there isn't a hole there or signs of plug marks on the sides- I would try it w/out.

RE: Zama Carb

Rebuild kit is on order, will let you know how it turns out.

RE: Zama Carb

Hard to say when previous owner has tampered with the Welch Plug Dude . I have silicon-ed or locktited over this area when I have had to due to necessity . Once you receive the Rebuild Kit you should be fine . Ensure to clean all the fuel circuit with concentrated carb cleaner , use a duster or compressed air to assist . Good Luck and let us know your outcome Bro !
