By broken jet do you mean the main metering stem? Did you install a new one?

Did you remove the fuel inlet fitting and clean that fine mesh screen that is soldered onto it?

Are the floats centered in the fuel bowls so they do not rub and have full, free movement?

Are you sure it is a carburetor problem and not an ignition problem?

I am officially retired and no longer in business, but I'm willing to help if you can't figure it out. My email is open in the modern version.

I see, well hopefully you are enjoying retirement! Any help or thoughts you have would be appreciated, I"ve never had this much trouble and am at a loss at this point.

Yes the idle metering jet was broken off. I drilled out what was left of it, chased the threads and installed a new one.

Yes fuel inlet screen was removed and cleaned...entire carb was disassembled and cleaned when I rebuilt.

As best I can tell, the float has free travel and is not binding or rubbing on anything. I did have trouble with the needle sticking (rubber tipped as that is all I can fins). 3rd one I tried finally seemed to work.

The venturi was a little beat up, looks like its been dropped a few times before. Anyway tractor runs a little rough at idle, slightly better with idle adjusting screw all the way in. Tractor lacks power in 4th/5th gear, and also just randomly dies after its warmed up. Starts right back up after it dies with no choke. I have verified good fuel flow from the tank and adjusted the governor. Also checked for manifold/gasket leaks while tractor was running with propane torch.

My dad still thinks its a carb problem, at this point I am thinking ignition. Not sure what to start checking though...everything is new - plugs, wires, points, condenser, coil, alternator, battery and cables and wiring.

"-- slightly better with
idle adjusting screw all the way in."

That is a sign that your carb is not clean. Also, 5th does not have much power anyway, it is direct drive and not geared down. When you say less power in 4th, is that pulling nothing or with a load? The 6+ mph for 4th means it is not really a tillage gear. Also the carbs on the SH thru the 560 give max power with the main jet screw 5 turns out, it is not adjusted like the non Super H and M.

Wont start off in 4th or 5th gear without the choke out. Once moving choke can be pushed in and it will continue just fine, until it starts to die. This is with no load, just the bare tractor. Main jet screw on the bottom, front of the carb (towards governor) is set 5 turns out currently, although I usually only set them about 3 turns for better economy as mine are not hard workers.

Have the carb off now and will clean again and hope for better results. Thanks!

Use a can of aerosol carb cleaner. NOT brake cleaner. Stick the nozzle into every orifice, and passage you can find on that carb and spray until it comes through somewhere else, and then stick the nozzle into where the spray came out and spray again. Pay special attention to the brass jet down in the bottom where the load screw fits. There is an area in behind there that SOMETIMES fills up with crud and is very difficult to remove.

When you think you have it clean, blow compressed air into each and every hole there is. If the carb IS clean, the compressed air WILL exit through another hole somewhere. If it doesn't, you are not yet done with cleaning.

Where abouts in Iowa are you?

Will do! Just talked with Matt at Motec Eng about it and he gave my a few things to try as well. I would have sworn In had it clean from the beginning but hopefully I missed something.

Central IA, right around Des Moines.

Send me an email. If you go to the modern version, my email is open.

Apparently YT has that part of it all messed up, so here's my email.
