WD carburator

I'm considering rebuilding the carb on my WD but I can't tell which carb it is. It is covered in grease. Is there a way to determine the carb model while it is still attached?

As the guys said either carb came on the WD. Usually, the Zenith has a little disc riveted to the top of the float bowl with two sets of numbers. Inside number is the Zenith part number, outside number is the AC part number. Parts, & rebuilding kits can be purchased using either number. The Marvel/Schebler carbs usually have a little square tag riveted to the front of the venturi throat of the carb. Most all AC's used the "TSX" series of Marvel carbs. The first three letters will be "TSX"-xxx and a three digit number. That will be the number needed to purchase a kit. We have complete coverage on carb kits, parts, and rebuilding services on both Zenith and Marvels. Drop us a line if interested. Be glad to help out.. HTH

Looking at my owners manual for WD It shows both carburetors. Here are a couple of differences that can be seen without taking it off the tractor. The drain cock on the Zenith is straight down out the bottom of carburetor. The MS comes out at about a forty five degree angle toward the back of the tractor. The choke lever on the Zenith is a straight piece facing the front of the tractor. If I remember right it points down to choke. The choke lever on the MS is a quadrant (or trianglur) affair with a slot. To choke the tractor this lever pushes fowwrd of the tractor. A third difference I just notice while typing this. The main jet on a Zenith is on the lower front. The Mainload adjusting needle on a MS is located on the front upper portion of the bowl.

WD should have a Zenith carb, and they should have a metal tag on them on top- usually a round tag. Clean off the grease and look for that. Marvel-Schebler is a larger carb, and was standard on the WD45, SN 146607 and up. M-S would be a TS464. Couple days ago someone posted ORIGINAL carb numbers for all AC products, on maybe AC or the Tractor Talk board.

To find out what carb it is you have to remove it from the tractor because the tag is on the back side and can not be seen other wise. Now if its a M-S carb than it will use the same kit for all of them. Thats the nice thing about M-S carbs and they only make 3 or 4 sizes of them and so that means there is only 3 or 4 kits made.

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
