It was always my favorite Carb. I always thought the tillitson worked perfect on all the engines I had even compared to Walbro.

If you want to sell me a GP, bring out a 123 with EFI at a reasonable price. I saw a complete Ariens snowblower with EFI at Home Depot for $1699.

This looks really great. I've been flying the 176 EVO for three plus years and it seems to keep gaining power. Once the ignition issues got ironed out, it's been an awesome engine. Runs really good on cans.

I'm looking hard at the new 125" EF Extra 300. This would be the perfect engine for it.

Both Tillotson and Walbro offer it on their website. It seems that GP is already doing business with both companies already.

Joe - I need a few of these.

Just got started on my 2nd container of composite IMAC/3D planes for 46% to 52% size.

Need to add these to me fleet of 176 Evo's! I got some custom 30X14.5 and 30X15 also coming in Dec/2018.

Santa came early this year

Look what just arrived!

Unfortunately I had to run to a meeting so no more pictures available. Hopefully I have to time do unboxing later today.

Unboxing pictures!

Everything looks great except Tillotson bit weird after Walbros but I think that it'll do the trick. It's around 200 g heavier than 176.

Can't wait to fire it up after Xmas.

Your 176 is as powerful as any 200+cc quad I've seen....

Saw the YouTube promo 246cc quad that was machined/built from 123 parts....

Any idea when you guys will have a retail-ready 4-cylinder???

Why is the Tillotson weird? Why are there so many washers under the carb screws?

Looks to be a Thackery lock washer combined with a flat washer - very common on parts with large growth differentials
