|ASEguy said: (quoted from post at 06:00:57 08/26/12) My throttle valve was completely stuck on my 8N and I was faced with your dillema. I bought a gallon of carb cleaner from the auto parts store, disassembled it as best as I could an soaked it for two weeks. It cleaned up really nice and works well with a new kit and the throttle shaft freed up too. Patience is the key. Hope this helps. Gerard|
The dip type carb cleaner will not clean out stopped up passages in a JD 2 cyl. carb. Only a drill bit of the correct size will do it. Do your self a favor and send it to PopinJohn carb repair
. (google is your friend) They'll do it right for cheap money compared to others.
The people who own this site also do the rebuilds. This post was edited by Dodgeit at 13:00:21 08/27/12.
