Just my guess but I bet they will both have the same carb this time, or you could do like me and just use the J21 carb. These engines were already great, now with the new crank they will be even better..
correct the new K301EC and k302.1 will both have balanced crankshafts. The exploded view of the k301ec also has a different piston and sleeve compared to the regular K301. I have not seen an exploded view of the K302.
