Many times it seems problems are a simple fix . some of us will try to go the most expensive way for things like fuel problems by replacing a carburetor, and still come to find it is a leaking manifold instead.. I haven't tried that approach yet,I have other problems that has taken my time (Water pump in well) to try yet...all other info you have given me has been right on . I still need to get that 6 1/2 " pulley for the wheel horse.
I used to work in a factory and one of the blue collar workers was working on a problem, he had a great education and Knew so much that he would ask some of the people within the manual working force Questions about simple things.. I ask him one day why he did this, with the education he had he should know all the answers??? He said too much education. "I start at the top of the list of possibilities, and work down, of many numerous things it could be, when in fact some fixes may just be a simple bump with a hammer, we laughed and became good friends after that .
I appreciate all answers to my posts. I just figure you have been versed on Wheel horse pretty well. It works for me .. If you reply back to me we can keep in touch.
