I have a attachment that I didnt see it that link posted earlier, ill take a pic of it and put it on here, I hate carbs. Lol but thanks for the Info


The flojet carbs are good barbs, but like every mfg, they have idiosyncrasies...

Read how to take apart and get the rebuild kit ahead of time.

All brass floats should be considered suspect in an overflow situation, same with needle valves and seats.

Misc unknown pieces of whazzat are in the gas tank, be sure to use a filter inline.

WOW!!! What an instant collection.
The generator, front sickle, planter, middle buster, plow and disc as well as one Sweet looking tractor to put them on.

That gentleman has given you one heck of a gift. A real piece of history.

Please post that pic in the Attachments thread too when you get a chance.

The sickle is for a 2 wheel walk behind David Bradley but thats not a problem.  You should be able to find one of those easily as this part of the country is thick with them.   :smilewink:

GREAT COLLECTION!!!!!

Write the number down sometime and post it. I know they made blue attachments for a few of the walk behinds, but IDK that they did or didn't do one for the Burbans. Other brands in that era did... But I think it would need a way to float some.

Smarter guys than me (like gtractor above, Lauber, Pat, and three or four others) will have to let you know.

its for a walk-behind. Actually its would fit a Suburban walk-behind, which a high HP 2 wheeled tractor in the same color as your Suburban. The 2 wheeler came out in 1958 and the rider in 1959.  The first sickle unit for the rider will have model number of 917.60639,, .

 

 

Now what I want to know is............what's the serial number under the model number of your tractor????

That is a nice tractor, you got the turning brakes also on it, you lucky guy!

 

Yea, sickle is definitely for a walk behind. I've always wanted to try to mod one to see if it could get it to work on the front of a Suburban.

Nice collection of implements, few I definitely want. I think the DB mold board was only a 6", the 8 & 10 came later when the HP went up and tractors got heavier. 

Once you get the carb figured out and mastered, they run good. Not as prone to clogs as the Walbro on the TEchs, but they can be finicky. The one on our '64 725 leaks out the bottom when not running, but tractor runs so good, I'm afraid to take it apart to fix it, we just turn off shut off valve.
