Hi I just picked up a '45 wc that had sat for 10 years in the woods, Im a JD guy, but the deal on this project was just too good. I cleaned up the mag so the trip mechanism would function, replaced a crushed float ( I assume it had water in the carb and froze) cleaned the carb best I could, got the wife to pull me up the drive and it started after 4 feet. My problem is that it will only run with the choke closed. This tractor is missing the entire air cleaner assymbly from the carb up, would this assymbly add enough restriction to fix this issue? If so, does anybody here have one from a parts tractor to sell me? Im in central Mn.

Thanks in advance

Nick

Any chance you're near Milaca? Call Ron at 320-983-3500. Would really simplify things to give a location, since many of us know of multiple sources in the area.

I played with the tractor a bit more today. I blew out the carb again, I checked the gas flow from the tank to the carb and found adequate flow both at the end of the gas line and out of the drain in the bottom of the carb. should there be a open hole on the bottom of the carb next to the drain plug? it just seems like Im getting too much air and it can't seem to draw the fuel it needs. Are the carb kits for these more than a new needle and seat, and bowl gasket, because if its not then I question why I would need to put a kit into it, the needle seems to seat fine and close the flow when the float rises, no problems with leaking gas. Sorry to sound incompetent, I appreciate the advice.

and to those who asked, Im just north of Mora mn.

Thanks again

Nick,

I"m not sure where you are located in central MN but I"ve had pretty good luck finding old Allis parts at Gotvald Implement at Gotvald"s Corner (just east of Pierz, MN). Talk to Dick over at Gotvald I"m pretty sure he can help you out. Good luck on your WC.

George

I may have one but thats not the problem with it. You have either a clogged carb and it need to be rebuilt or you have a clog some place in the fuel system.

Thanks Old, I still should probably look at getting an air cleaner on it Ill talk to you via email. Its got an MS carb, does anybody have a diagram that shows all the passages so I don't miss one? I know on my JD carb there were hidden passages that had to be drilled out to get it right.

Check this site & see if it shows your carb.

If you get a good carb kit it will have an instruction sheet that will point out all the passage ways. I use walker brand kits in my stuff and they work well and don't cost an arm and leg either
