To Kouba or not to Kouba?

OK Gents,

It looks like we can get them for $11.00. If we cut out the packaging and instructions, it MAY be lower. I would post the instructions on TT or MS Word document and e-mail to everybody.

I would guess between postage and shipping, maybe a couple of bucks more...???

So we can place an order up front to Norm Kouba and each pay $16.00. He will ship directly to your home, with instuctions and "packaging".

If I am the middle man, the price should be $~13.00. It will get to you slower, probably by one EXTRA week. You will save > $3.00.

Several home made tools, or fancy screwdrivers have been offered by our fellow TT'ers.

Personally, I have messed with my fuel screw enough, burning my fingers, (thinking I was) turning the fuel screw but in fact never touched it. It is a hassle. I store my "screwdriver" under my crossbar pad.

All things considered, I AM interested in one of these things. If you look at it from a beer standpoint, I buy one 24 ounce Sam Adams (on tap) for $5.50. So this thing is roughly 3 of those (without a tip). I guess with a tip, 2 Sam's!

Tell me what you want. I DO NOT have an issue w/ being the middle man. Hey, 3 bucks is 3 bucks! If 20 guys buy them, that is $60 saved total (man dollars in the nuclear industry!). It may put us in some sort of favor w/ Norm! Who knows where it would go from there...???

This is what I have from everybody:

I want one also (probably two with Unkle Moose)......PayPal would reduce your headaches a lot as you move forward with this. Might be worth your time to set up an account.


I'm in for two of them.


I'm in on the deal.

I am assuming you are talking about the fuel mixture "T" handle adapter that Norm sells. I would say that it's easiest to order direct from Norm. Adding a middle man is always messy and gets complicated very quickly. Pay the extra $3 and get the stuff direct from Norm.

I ordered a "T" handle from Norm and he shipped it out the same day. It works great and everybody should buy one.

My 2 cents
