2 cycle carb question

Is it possible to tune a carb that is designed for a 35 cc engine to run on a 25 cc engine? I am considering reviving an old FS85 since I have a carb that physically fits on the engine. Just wondering if anyone has done it?

If it will fit I'd say just go ahead and put it on. I don't know for sure but it may be the exact same carb. I know I mix and match carburetors on push mowers all the time and they work just fine. Hope that helps.

It should work, but you will need to adjust the mixture screws, which you probably would do anyway.
