on a 706 gas, what ussually goes wrong the fuel shut-off solenoid? I can hear it click, but the carb leaks fuel sometimes. Just replace it, or is there a fix? my money we are spending.
thanks Dan

Nothing wrong with your solenoid if you have fuel.

The electric solenoid simply jams a needle into the main jet, stopping the flow of fuel through the "load" and idle circuits. That prevents "backfire" from unburned gas hitting the muffler during "coast down".

It does NOTHING, whatever, to prevent the carb bowl from overfilling and overflowing into the "air horn" if the float is heavy, or there is a problem with the needle and seat.

There is a packing gland located inside the carb where the solenoid installs. It is not likely that this packing has failed, but it is possible. You might try tightening the packing nut, but don't get too overzealous with it. If that doesn't work, you will need to replace the packing.

So just where is the leak showing up? If it drips only where the solenoid screws in, all you need is that packing gland. About $4.00 at your local Case-IH dealer.

Just make sure you get a OEM kit, I sell A&I kits, would not sell them to my worst enemy, they seem to be a cheap chinese knockoff.

I agree 100% on the A&I kits. I wouldn't seel one of those to my worst enemy. The TISCO kits are a different story, they are now every bit as good, if not better, than an OEM kit.

The General GG was made by the Cleveland Tractor Company (Cletrac) of Cleveland, Ohio. Originally the company was called the Cleveland Motor Plow Company which began in 1912, then the Cleveland Tractor Company (1917) and finally Cletrac. ... [Read Article]
