    I understand that the throttle connection on a 780 is located at the PTO end (you can see the connections on the intake mani in the photo) vs the MAG end as in a 750. In this picture, would these carbs simply be turned 180 degrees so the diaphragm covers face the cylinders, or do the true 780 carbs have the throttle shaft installed on the opposite end of the carb rack?

    Thanks!!

    True 780 carbs have the cable on the PTO end with the return fitting on the MAG cylinder. They also have the built in restrictor into the return fitting and only have 1 fuel inlet fitting per carb. (no hose connecting inlet to inlet to inlet like 650/750).


    By placing the return fitting facing forward, it helps the fuel get back to the tank easier. And lets trapped air inside the fuel escape easier too. (not trying to force air bubbles downward like a 650/750 carb).

    Some guys have posted about having 780 carbs with the cables reversed, but I've never seen them. Those might be one of THOSE sets????
