The throttle shaft is good, but the bushing is worn in the TSX carburetor; where can I find a replacement bushing?

One of the radiator bolts just turns and does not come loose; any suggestions on getting it loose?

How could a person do a ballast resistor bypass for starting on this?

if you have a 12v system and use a 6v coil and resistor.. just save some headache and get a 12v coil like the napa ic14sb and get rid of the resistor.

I bought the bushing to fit mine at Lowes. All I had to do was cut it to length.

Royce has addressed your carburetor problems perfectly, in my book. The radiator mounting bolts on a row crop in your condition needs a torch, and cut the nuts and bolt at the bottom of the casting.If your wanting to bypass the resistor you apparently have-not found your electrical problem yet.

If you do a Google search for the bushing, I believe the part
number is ABC513. I can't post a link to them here.

After I install them, I use an end mill to cut them down so I
can still install the original seals and cup that comes in the kit.

I had that problem with the radiator bolt turning. It was on an

original 960 radiator that I wanted to save. The only way I got

it out was to remove the core from the mounting frame so that

I could get to the top of the carriage bolt. Then I cut the bolt.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no ballast resistor bypass

needed on a 961. They didn't have one with the original 6V system.

Yes. the diesels were 12V. Would they use a ballast resistor?

If it has been converted to 12V, use a 12V coil and no resistor.
NAPA IC14SB or equivalent. About $15 at my local car parts store.

It has been a few years, but when I had the problem with the radiator bolt turning I believe that I was able to wedge it with a screwdriver on the head of the bolt. It is a carriage bolt.
