Does anyone have any idea where I could find a needle valve assembly for an ASP 46? I've searched all over and can't seem to find anything.

I've thought of trying to find a plug for the needle valve assembly and then going with a remote needle valve, any thoughts?

Just in case anyone else has the same problem, I found an answer.

The ASP engine is basically the same as the Magnum, apparently made in the same plant. I have found that the needle valve assembly for the Magnum 46 fits the ASP. I have ordered the assembly and it should be here this weekend. If all works as I hope I will let you know. :D

I got the new needle valve assembly on Saturday, installed it and fired the motor up for the first time in over 15 years. I had to crank it for quite a while and am working on getting the air/fuel mixture correct, but it does run! :D
