Tillotson rebuild kit warning

Hopefully this will save somebody else some troubleshooting time:

I recently put a Winderosa rebuilt kit into my HR  75A and discovered that the provided low speed needle didn't allow any fuel through. It looks almost exactly the same as the old one and fit ok, but the motor wouldn't idle, except on the primer. Ran ok with the throttle open.

Wasted a few days replacing fuel, re-cleaning the carb and replacing other fuel system parts, but when I put the old needle back in it ran great.

Thanks for the tip. Stay away from winderosa and go with what EC sells. There are some threads in the help desk with more info re EC. I just bought a rebuild HR kit (no needle) and posted the pics with Hermit's advice.
