I have a 49 cub with the original IH carburetor. Since getting the tractor home and fixing a few of the ailments, I have found that the fuel inlet threads are pretty much stripped. Is there a way to repair the threads and keep it the original NPT size? I'm unaware if helicoils are made in that size or if there is enough meat there to put one in without destroying the housing.

I actually have one of those carbs ordered in case I have to swap the top. If nothing else, I can swipe the jewelry off it. The floats are plastic as I understand. Jets are probably all the wrong size since they don't use Freedom Units over there.

I wonder if the top housing of this carburetor would fit yours, see link. It's probably not a very good carburetor.

Yep like Jim said and posted i personally have used this product on a H carb as around here i do a lot of carb work since i am and old Fart and have been working on cabs now for darn near 60 years. There is no rethreading , drilling . You do need to start with a clean carb and clean fitting. though . Once i run them thru my carb cleaning stuff they are clean as new and you follow the instructions to the letter and you can remove and reinstall one kit will do more then one carb .as it is like the old Brillcream a little dab will do ya and use the thread unlocker on the inlet fitting .

This works well. I would just barely remove material from the face of the threads to allow th fitting to get 1/16" farther in the hole, then use this product as directed. Worked well for me. Jim

Is JB weld E-10 resistant? I could see removing the screen and gluing the fitting in.

A little steep on the price, but I found it a little cheaper on the web. I'll give it a shot and see what happens.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1929 McCormick-Deering 10-20 - by Randal Simmon. On July 4th 1998 my dad and I was sitting on the front porch when he said that he was going to sell his two 10-20's to a junk man. He said that the junk man was going to give him $500 for both of them but he hadn't received the money for them yet. So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine. He had bought them about five years before thinking that he was going to restore them himself. After five years sitting in the barn, he changed h ... [Read Article]
