Tillotson carb on a DA100

Hi, I just picked up a used DA100 standard version, barely run in, but the odd thing is it comes with a Tillotson carb, my other DA100 has a WJ71 but it is an L version. The seller insists that was the way it came from DA.

Did DA ship some engines with Tillotson carbs on non L version DA100s? and is it worth the changing it for a Walbro WJ-71? since the seller has a couple of 3W 106s too, I am wondering if they are the scource of the carb at some point and he has forgotten or isn't saying.

Also I can't find a carb number on the Tillotson, anyone know where I can find it?

The number is on the carb body, look near the needles..Likely starts with an "S"...

There is nothing near the needles other than H and L, i can work out what they are. I have an " S2" on a cover plate, a " 28" near the throttle arm and on the carb body what looks more like a stamped serial number than a carb model number " 232E632"

That's the carb number, the letters would be HS...Sometimes there's not enough room for the letters...
Google HS 232 tillotson

ah, thanks, Antique, it seems to be a 3W106 carb. Cheeky seller looks like he swopped it out at some point.

I suppose the next question is, is it worth keeping or replacing? are Tillotsons any good? 3W seem to use them.

I have not run one on a DA... but I have had both walbro and Tillotsen on the 3W... and I prefer the tillotsen. All my DA's over the years have had Walbro...

Not sure why the previous owner would have swapped it out though.... If it runs good, I would keep it.

Swap it and save yourself some grief. On all 3 of the 3W engines I've owned, I've put Walbro carbs, DA or Excel ignitions and aluminum carb blocks on them and then they ran like they should have from the factory.

Try it with the Tillotson. I'd be surprised if it didn't run the same as with a Walbro.
Neither carb was designed for a twin-cylinder model plane motor.
