1952 John Deere A.a couple weeks ago I inquired on what I thought was a spark plug problem,due to the tractor breaking up under a load. I pull the tractor and at low rpm pulls great. when I throttle it up it starts to break up. gtx1967 chimed in with the consideration of a starving for fuel problem. has good flow to the carb, but when I opened the drain nothing came out till I poked a wire in it to open it up. hard telling whats all going on in there. does any one have any good(printable) info on the carburetor, I would appreciate any and all.

o.k pulled the bowl off, it has 2 gaskets on it. opened the fuel strainer and that gasket is history. didn't see a gasket set on this site. but Roberts has a gasket set for DLTX series for $7 . its a 1952 I think. cant read the serial #. any way to tell which carb it actually is

gtx your reply said no e-mail so I cant do that thru you think it could be something so simple as a cleaning. and lee b had a good point about just some build up in there. I never had trouble with it except the last 2 pulls. I would rather try the simple stuff before a complete tear down and rebuild

It's likely just 2 simple things to clean. Remove the bowl & clean it without disturbing the float setting, and pull the nozzle out of the stem & clean in there & the holes in the nozzle itself. That should take care of it & if not you'll need to clean a few other things. I'm not sure how to turn on emails but It should be there now on this post.

If you need help or some pointers you can call me I've done quite a few of those carbs with good results. They're pretty simple as far as carbs go if you know a few things about them. Parts are ez to get also. There's also several places to send them if you'd rather do that. Send me an email & I'll give you my phone # if you'd like.

Mason bees and small wasps will often fill such a hole with a nest or partial nest anyway, I wouldn't think it requires a carburetor overhaul just because of that. Check the drain hole on your magneto cap area while I'm thinking about those bees, they rusted mine several times that way till I filled the hole with the filter off of a used cigarette.

Have you tried to open the load screw 1/4 of a turn and give it another run down the track? You may have the idle side set too rich compensating for a too lean setting on the load screw as well. Back in the days when I was leaving gas in the tank or carb for that matter, I got into the habit of opening the needles and returning them to their original position before start up just to save time doing that same thing once I tried to work it a little. Varnish forms on the sides of the needles and cracking them loose like that allows fresh gas in there to dissolve it away. Since I've left both the carb and tank dry when done with it anymore, I don't have to do even this much. Gasoline has always formed gum, varnish, and gone bad in a real stinky manner - it's not the ethanol doing it. Leave them dry and save yourself some hassles.

You may be surprised at what all junk could be in that float bowl..!

Just do not wrench hard on that bottom can break the casting and that is expensive..! Be sure to clean the fuel screen in the well, on top of the carb, too..

If you treat it carefully, you may not need a new float-bowl gasket..usually a few light taps, with the bottom nut loose will have the float bowl ready to drop off.
