I just got my first Cub Cadet Original the other day and was working on it this weekend trying to get it started.
I know I can get it to start if I can get past my carb troubles.
It has a Carter Model N carb that is gummed up with sticky stuff from old fuel. I was able to get the tank cleaned out and fuel running from the sight bowl thru the line but nothing is getting in the carb, I assume it is plugged up from this sticky stuff but not sure what to do now.
Should I take the carb off and soak it in something?
I took the bowl off the bottom of the carb and sleaned all the nasty out of it already.
The second problem is that the metal fuel line from the sight bowl to the carb is now leaking on both ends of the line. It has was appears to be rubber seals on both ends that are rotted.
Is there a better way to run the fuel line than using this little metal one??
I will listen to any suggestions you guys have.
Pictures of how you have your fuel system would help as well.
Here are some pictures of what mine has right now.
