Hi, I recently picked up a 1950 wd that although complete has sat out in the elements for some years. I cleaned out the fuel system but now I need to know the initial settings for the carb. It is a tsx 561, there is a needle on top and one in the bottom of the bowl. the other info I need is for the magneto. Are the wires installed clockwise 1,2,4,3?, my manual (duetz allis) doesnt say, on the gear that drives the rotor it looks like there is an A and a C, the manual says that to time the rotor there should be two marks, one for clockwise and one for counter clockwise. Are these the marks?, which do I use for my tractor? I know the mag works as I tested it and got spark (wire from coil to grounded plug). Last question is the mag supposed to snap as the engine is cranked? Thanks Peter

Initial carb setting are generally 1 1/2- 2 turns out from bottoming out. At least should run, final settings are adjusted from there. Firing order is 1243, but initial starting point on the magneto is critical, generally #1 is top left or top right position as viewed from rear, according to when front cylinder is top dead center, ready to fire. Snap on rotation of the magneto is normal, and essential, as the impulse rotates.

Thanks for the settings JSM, I got it running and was driving it last night. I was going to far when setting #1 to tdc (allowing mag to click). set up just shy of tdc with rotor just ahead of mark and success! What oil is to be used in the transmission?, I know the quantity but not the grade. Thanks Peter

Headed for work now but will get back to you- yars ago we used 140 gear lube- now maybe 80-140 multilube is ok.
