i picked up a 73 silver bullet. it is the little 295 one, but it doesn't have carbs on it. can anyone tell me if the dual carb set-up needs a "special" set of carbs?

how did these engines do oval racing?

i had one a long time ago i think it had 2 tillitsons.it was abear to start because it flooded if you looked at it wrong.but if you ever got it started it went like crazy.i think there was nothing unusal about the carbs.

Had a 292 or was it 294 and a 440. Nothing special about the carbs., just tillys. We neever had a problem starting it or it being flooded. I raced the 292 in junior ovals and killed the farm kids. I really enjoyed that sled. It was one of the first stock sleds with carbide runners.

It does have 2 Tilly's. I own a 294 myself. Faster than even the 440 Silver Bullet offered in 1973. That 294 just rev's & rev's & will easily run 70 mph on the hard stuff. Flooding is a problem until warm, always was. I have also seen the conversion to single carb with manifold. I hear flooding is reduced, probably along with performance. The trade-off depends on your preference. If you look at the line-up offered by Ski-Doo into 73, you will notice only the hi-performance sleds had 2 carbs...TN'T Free-Airs & Blizzards...oh yes & the 294 TN'T!
