Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this. I used too big a screwdriver and took a chunk out of the pedestal. I was thinking about using JB Weld but my problem with that is how to preserve the threads.

Unfortunately That is beyond repair. I can see the threads on the opposite side are shot also. Being that the bowl nut screws into those threads it would never tighten or seal correctly. :(

 

At minimum you might be able to find an old carb body and swap your pieces over. From the looks of the bowl gasket It looks like possibly it is a Carter #26 carb?

 

Good luck! If I had a spare around I would have shipped it to you.

Maybe you can try to repair w/ liquid metal - I never tried to do this, so I don't know if it's successful.

 

Have a look to our sponsors and ask them for help (I had a carb prob too and I was successful :thumbs: )

JB weld can be threaded, but you can also install a greased bolt before applying the JB Weld.  The grease will work as a mold release, but it will also keep it from sticking to the pedestal if you get the grease on the pedestal.

Like New.Canadian.DB.Owner said in his thread, but I would go one step further 

when place the piece back in using JB weld I would use a light gage wire to wrap it to the pedestal to hole it tight or a small plastic tubing

after the JB Weld dries then you can remove the wire

but if you use plastic tubing you can leave it on , but you will have to drill the tubing for the hole in the pedestal.

the plastic tubing with support the broken piece for many years

Thanks for the help.  I have already put three layers of JB Weld on so I don't overdo the application of extra junk on this sensitive piece.  This is what it looks like now.  It is setting up right now.  You can see the threads inside.  I still have to clean the area up, but thanks to this forum, I've saved about 75-100 dollars.  Now, on to the deck.  I have all the spindles off and through another thread about replacing bearings, I think I can handle that job also. Two of three spindles are shown.  I'm having difficulties getting the third one to come apart. It's still in the vice with PB Blaster. I noticed that the deck spindle mounting holes are different.  Is that just the difference in the location on the deck, or are these spindles from different years or models?  I'll be sending pics as I do two of the three tractors I have (see my first forum posting).  I have decided that JD3 is beyond being fiscally responsible.  JD2 is apart right now, and JD1 is being used for leaf mulching and can't be tore apart yet.  Thanks to all who have helped me learn about these terrific tractors.  They are as tough as advertised.

... I'm having difficulties getting the third one to come apart. It's still in the vice with PB Blaster. ...

I had a tine on my mini-tiller that just wouldn't come off, even after days of PB Blaster, WD40, and then the home brew mentioned here often.  I finally used some 50:1 gas & two-stroke oil mixture.  Gas will go through even the smallest gap & pull the oil with it.  Came off in a couple of hours.

Thanks, I'll try that.  I'll let you know how it goes.  The carb. is just fine now.  The test will be how tough the JB Weld stays in the gas solution.

Carb. is done and back together.  Did some filing and flattening.  It was a good project.  Now the real test tomorrow, will it hold gas.

Hey all.   Yea,  It worked.  And no I didn't file and flatten while the float was on.  I was using it as a gauge to get the end of the pedestal parallel with it.  I used water to test for leaks.  Now it's on to a good cleaning and then installation.

One last post on this topic.  lyall, This chip was AWOL.  I had to fill the hole.  To my surprise, it worked.  All That was needed was some filing.   We'll see in the coming year of work how it will hold.  The grease on the bolt was the secret.  Thanks NEW.CANADIAN.DB.OWNER.

Good luck with the repair. Just remember to go easy when threading that bolt.

Thanks KennyP. I was tightening the bowl bolt real slow.  It bottomed out tight and not leaking.  I have re-installed it  and it is keeping gas just fine.  I sure hope this thread saves a few other carbs.  This took about 2 hrs. total time, but over three days.  I will use the correct sized screwdriver from now on.  :dancingbanana:

Now all you have to worry about is the vibration over time. Good luck!

Thanks KennyP.  I have an extra screen from a gas tank shut-off valve.  If I put that up next to the jet, I that will work just fine as a safe-guard.
