I acquired a '49 WD last week. I've got the manuals, been researching articles here.

Previous owner, was trying to get it running, so a lot of things were already done.
The zenith carb was untouched(213348-3). I removed it, soaked in naptha overnight, and couldn't do much more than split it into two. Full of rust and whatnot. It spent an afternoon in the charcoal grill, and I was able to get all the jets and fittings out. Currently have it soaking in molasses and water to remove rust.

This is my first carb rebuild so I'm looking at online diagrams and find I am missing some parts. They all seem to be in a rebuild kit except the venturi. Don't see any venturis online.

Any suggestions?

Great advice, thanks,

Brenda didn't have any on hand, but is looking. I need a Zenith 18, she had the other sizes.

Next time I talk to her, I'll ask what the 18 refers to.

Last week someone posted a Zenith carb for a WD45 they wanted to sell.

It would be great if you did. Let me know what you would need from me to make it happen.

My first carb rebuild, so definitely like all the input. The molasses and water may very well be a mistake. I've had luck using it on other things. It turns the rust black and it washes right off to shiny metal. Problem is it flash rusts as it dries. So I need to treat it with a rust product as soon as it is done soaking.

Thanks,

Don't use a rust product just stick it in some diesel fuel or engine oil that'll keep it from rusting and nothing to come loose later in the carb

I don't know if the carb is the original, but it is the correct model number for the WD. Don't know of any Allis around here that are sitting, but I know of a couple of Farmalls that won't be needing their carbs. If they have a zenith, it might work.

Venturi will probably work I used one off an AC D17 carb to repair a carb on an IH 464.Also used the bottom half of the carb everything bolted right up.

Thanks, the grill and molasses I had on hand. Don't have anything around here that uses brake fluid. But will keep it in mind, especially if I need faster results.

I may have that part laying around since I have a number of carbs off of the A/C tractors. Not likely that venturi form an Farmall will fit. Me I would never use brake fluid or molasses or water on a carb. Turpentine or ATF or carb cleaner yes and I have rebuild some real bad looking carbs over the years

Thanks, was already looking to place an order with them. Didn't know the cup/bracket was broken on sediment bowl, so now the sediment bowl is broken as well. I'll give a call.

Also try to find an older carb (do you know if you have the right one?) because all the new venturis you get now will be plastic try to find an old brass one.

Brake fluid will take the rust off in a matter of minutes.

You can most likely get one from Sandy Lake Implement. Ask for Brenda when you call if she happens not to answer. She knows these older parts inside and out.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
