Just that it not leak, which it didn't. :) I got the Walbro to stop leaking before I switched to the Tillotson. The Walbro made good power and had good midrange, too. The Tillotson mid range is a bit better and the engine is making a lot more power, but I believe that is only because the engine is starting to break in (it has 6 gallons through it now), and I'm starting to lean it out. Both carbs work fine, the Tillotson is a better carb, though, imo.
