Doesn't the lit you have for rebuilding the carb have instructions???? Most kits will tell you in the instructions what the setting should be to start with. That said as per what the other guy said. As for an in line filter most of the time those cause way more problems then they ever fix

parts list only with basic instructions.It now runs great,but seems to be still running low on supply after a bit.Tossed the filter too.Think I'll just have to take carb and other attached parts off and boil again.Thanks

Befre you open the carb back up try this. Remove the carb drain plug and check for a good steady flow if gas for a few minutes. Catch the gas to look for dirt/rust etc. If you do not have a good steady flow for say 3-5 minutes work your way back to the tank to find where it is clogged

Float set wrong or the needle sticking in the seat. If it is a rubber tipped needle seat then it should also have a spring clip that hooks to the float so it can not stick. Cheap kits will have the rubber tipped needle seat but not the spring

No clip means sticking needle seat and that gives you problems like you have now

Start with the 2 adjusting screws (1 on top is Idle, 1 on bottom is Load) each turned out 1.5 turns.

most add on in line filters cause flow issues.

can you be any less specific/

'at the carb'


at the fuel bowl to carb connection.

at bowl to head.. line to head.

at carb halves?

carb mouth?

out choke or throttle shaft?

I could have been less specific,but you'd never have figured it out without being there,but it was exactly as stated,FUEL RIGHT UP YO THE CARB,PART TIME GAS SHOOTING OUT INTAKE PORTION OF CARB,AND PART TIME WAS BONE DRY.Got good flow all the way through NOW,got good points now,everything is great now,ended up being a combination of several things.Had GREMLINS at work!

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
