    Hi
    I have been looking for nozzle and needle for a radius 143 for quite some time. Does anyone in here have these or know where to find them? Or if theree is a subtitute that will fit.

    Best regards

    Hi Tind. A search on this site reveals a couple of people have looked into this:
    Radius No.143
    Good luck

    Hi @Tind , i looked up in the reference gallery and i found a break down of your lantern, very cool.
    The needle looks very similar to a radius 119,
    Could this be adapted/customised to do the job.
    If you have the tools and skill set you could make your own, there are threads on this site that can point you in a good direction.
    wwwmogas.se ? is a good site for what you may be looking for.

    Thank's for the input Darryl! Fogas.se is a great site for spares but for the radius 143 it does fall short I'm sorry to say.
    The parts for the 119 will fit but not work beceause it's 300 CP and the radius 143 only 200 CP.
    Maby it's possible to solder the hole in a 119 jet and make a smaller one.

    @Tind

    I believe the 200CP jet should be 0.17 mm dia.

    The 28 and 29 gauge needle have a nominal inner diameter of 0.18 mm and the 30 gauge 0.16 mm. They do vary slightly due to tolerances.
