Rebuild/Repair Kits for the Walbro Carbs used on Paramotors

Walbro carburetors are used on more paramotor models than any other brand. Most have two needles for idle and high rpm and an idle stop adjustment. The WG8, used on Miniplane's Top 80, only has a mixture adjustment for idle.

There could be differences from what your manual states since different motors may require different starting fuel mixtures. Always use your manual's instructions over these.

Go here to see tuning instructions on Walbro carburetors.

Here are the carbs and carb kits common on paramotors. Kits do not include fulcrum, needle valves or springs which aren't normally replaced during a rebuild.
