I'm working with a guy that cannot get the brass plug out of the bottom of the bowl on a Ford 850. This is next to the pipe plug/drain plug on the bottom of bowl. Is there a jet under this plug? His tractor has been sitting for a year or more and will only run with the choke out.

Any tips on how to get this plug out without damaging it?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

How do you think it will do on a tractor? Haven't got a chance to tune it yet. I did replace this main fixed jet with an adjustable one that came in rebuild kit

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeWell, a "plug" does not "contain a jet", so precise language or pictures might clarify things. :roll:

Thanks JMOR and Soundguy, for the quick response. Chris, I am talking about the sintered plug (looked like a brass plug to me). Thanks again to both of you!

The small plug is simply plugging a hole that was necessary to drill a casting passage during manufacturing. Nothing to access there.

there is a drain plug, and a sinterized plug.. double check, yourself, which one he is trying to remove.

I was the guy he was trying to help. Posted this on another forum. I got the plug out using a pipe wrench gently after ordering another carb. The plug did contain a jet for the primary, but this was not the original carb for the 850 so I believe it's configured differently. The carb number was TSX-977 and I was hard pressed to find any info on it. Thanks for the help though, hopefully this helps someone else down the road =)

TSX 977 carbs were used on industrial 172 and 192 engines. Things like stationary power units.

We used to have a SUL AIR compressor with such a ford engine on it ( and a 977 carb ).

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal.
