Not really my tractor but ill tell anyway. Got up bright amd early today and jumped over the neighbours fence to get his Allis chalmers carb off. I met him at the local hardware store and he told me that he had been using a shovel all winter because his tractor would not run more than 5 minutes before sputtering and dying. I was sorry he hadnt bothered asking me to take a look at it. Especially since he knows I like fixing old engines. So I took the carb off his GT and told him Id give it a lookt over, it was full of a tan colored gel, everything was plugged and clogged. It took 2 hours to get it cleaned to my likings. When I reinstalled it the neighbour was amazed at how shinny it was (I gave it an extra buffing :) ) It took 10 minutes to get it installed and another 10 minutes to have it tuned right. He was very happy and told me He had'nt been able to run the throttle low before because the engine always died. I told him that now I was officially attached to his GT and that I forbade him to run regular gasoline in there from now on or I would personally drain his fuel tank.
Gotta hate that ethanol crap they put in regular gas it kills our old engines, eats at the gas lines and destroys gaskets
