    I need some help with mty TLE43, I get plenty of fuel but I think I have a weak coil. I have a hard time seeing the spark when I ground it to the cylinder head but I can still get a shock when I touch it. The only time I can get it running is when I remove the carb and start it when it's flooded. Then it will run strong until it dries up. `If I have a bad coil it's gonna cost 85 dollars and the carb is 120 dollars. I'm thinking of buying a TLE33 at Viza for 165 bucks. Any ideas?

    You can get a replacement walbro carb for a LOT less than $120. As I recall, about half that. (It's identical, as far as I can see, to the original.)

    ANY small engine shop in your area should be able to get you one if you hassle them to get it fast enough

    I don't know the dealer, but, scroll down to check the carb info I posted here. Then, using "walbro" and the number, a google search ought to show a dealer.

    (Edit: here's the lowest price I found... about $75

    I have a spare carb AND coil you can have.

    Your replacement cost was $85 plus $120?

    I'll pay shipping and you give $5 to the next homeless woman you see.

    5-7HEAVEN, that is an awesome offer! I really appreciate your help. I'll send you my mailing address in aprivate message. The TLE-33 carb is 45 dollars but it looks like it's totally different from the TLE-43. The TLE-43 carb is listed in Vizamotors for 120 dollars, so you would be better off buying a complete motor than parts at those prices!

    5-7 that is so awesome of you.
    I just found this site prolly 6-7 weeks ago, but I'm amazed at the camaraderie I see on here. I asked a question about TLE's this morning, and by the time I logged back in Loquin had already gone and physically measured some of his own equipment just to answer my question. I used to be into RC cars, and we had clubs, but everyone would just use the club to try and unload their junk equipment on noobs. You guys actually look out for each other, that's pretty cool.

    In closing, I was just wondering if anyone had a spare corvette they could send me....I already have the keychain...

    Having had the pleasure of several rides with 5-7, I can confirm your statement :)

    Zomby Builder gave me the engine, so I'm sending you what you need.

    Pay it forward.

    Thanks, 5-7HEAVEN, I'll use what I need and hold on to what I don't. If anyone needs what I have left I'll send it on. Sort of like shareware.LOL. By the way, I sure wish I could pick up the parts personally! Thanks again, I'm looking forward to getting that motor going again, it's one of the quietest and smoothest running 2-strokes out there.

    The world needs more people like that! Well, I swapped the coil this morning and it started, but it still ran rough and smokey. So I swapped the carb and got a dramatic improvement, super smooth and absolutely no smoke. Before the motor died I had noticed it was smoking a bit and it was harder to start. Now it starts even easier than when it was new.:grin5:

    John I am so happy that the carb did the trick!

    Hats off also to Zomby Builder for passing it to me.

    Don't forget that homeless person now.

    :idea:pay it forward.
