Back yet again!
Put the carb back on the tractor last week but could not get it to run at all. The best I could get was about 3sec. Other than that an occasional putt. It would start right up before I took the carb off so not a ignition issue.
This is not helped by me having to hand crank it :( since I have the starter and gen off and don't have a battery anyway in addition to the wiring being all crumbly and corroded. I am not quite in the shape I used to be so lots of cranking in a hot shed does not make my mood improve, haha. Quite frankly, I can turn it over faster w/crank than when it was last starting with the starter. I am sure that problem due to the poor connections in the old cables and grounds. I had a heck of a time getting the starter out due it being rusted into the bell housing and that also means the ground was rusty.
But to get back off that tangent....
I did note the gasket between the upper and lower casting of the carb was getting damp after my efforts. Float too high?? It was not dripping out on the ground though so I don't think the float needle is sticking (it was replaced with the kit).
Also, the crappy instructions with the parts kits didn't have anything on where to set stuff. I suspect that is my main problem. Where should the throttle shaft stop screw and idle mix screw be set to start with? The original manual for this tractor is around someplace but I can't seem to locate it right now. Probably got put away for "safe keeping".
