Put the new 12 in and used the tractor for 4 hours. (something i have never done) cleaning up the property with scrap prices up. Works great, wish i had done this 20 years ago but wanted to keep it original.
Welp, wish i wouldnt have cleaned the carb...( dad was rite )Twice now. not much in there but it wont start Worth a crap. Cranks over like crazy and sometimes fires up but then quites like its not getting fuel. So i crank the hi speed jet out a turn or so. till it fires . In and out till it starts. Didnt get it going yesterday. the longer it sits the better it fires up but wont stay running ?
After the third or fourth carb clean looking at the carb just didn't dawn on me that something was missing but last night I remembered this peace was in there kind of helped suck the fuel up into the intake and luckily I found it in my parts washer and now thankfully is running late new again
