I understand the concerns of the aftermarket kit but it is not my tractor..I'll have to check with owner on what he wants to do.

I took sediment bowl apart today to give a good cleaning. Noticed gasket was folded over and partially blocking fuel outlet. I'm sure this is part of the problem. Still has to get some sort of carb kit regardless.

That is ONE of the problems with aftermarket kits.

that's my point.

your neighbor or customer can either own a dead lump of iron that COULD be worth about 4500$ if it ran.. but 500$ non running.

OR

he could flip for a semi expensive 85$ kit.

or he can clip for a 400ish $ aftermarket carb.

the holley are SUPER finicky.. that's why we suggest using the correct kit for the carb and tractor number..

He might as well sell the tractor now if he's on the fence over spending less than 100$ to amke it a runner.. vs a broke down 500$ non running tractor that is taking a 4000$ value hit.

Kinda like owning a car but refusing to buy gas.

kinda pointless!

If the issue is a extreme loack of finances problem, *and* it can be rebuilt with the old parts after cleaning.. then that's a bandaid possibility.

Carb has been soaking 4 days. Went over it again with carb cleaner spray and compressed air. One piston was seized. No scoring that I could tell just build up around it. Both pistons moved freely after cleaning. Found some kits at work that had parts left over and grabbed a gasket. Put it all back together and is running great so far.

Sounds great when I load it with the brakes and ran good going down the road and pulling up steep hills.

He needs a new sediment bowl though. The center of his is ripped out so its non-functional.
