Hello Zach,
Have you gotten anywhere on your WH or JD?



Yes ive been using my WH around the yard and its been running great!
I also fixed the deere, just took an air compressor and blew out the fuel lines from the tank to the pump and the pump to carb. I started right up, a little smokey at first but then it cleared up. So now my little bros are driving that around and i use my WH for just use around the property. I have to say, i like the wheel horse better than the deere. Glad i purchased the WH totally worth the $200. :)

Im thinking of making a cool exhaust for my WH, right now it has the stock exhaust which is just a pipe with a small muffler on it. I was thinking of just straight piping it, does this engine require any back pressure or anything of that sorts? I was thinking doing a straight pipe with a flapper cap at the top of the pipe...
But just for now i would like to see how it sounds with the stock pipe but with out the muffler. Its kinda rusty so i will try to see if i can break it loose...

I'm not sure if a straight pipe would affect the engine or not. Someone else on here might be able to help you with that. It might be kind of noisy without a muffler. :)

Young age to get hooked on a habit but a lot better than all the bad stuff kids get into these days. Keep it up kid, everything you learn about  finding, obtaining,  troubleshooting, restoring and building will help get you through life. Oh yeah, did I mention frustration and the  joy in a job well done? Welcome!

One question, my WH had been running a little weird. For example it will stall out when i take the choke off. Thats even when fully warmed up. And i checked out the air filter and its in a bunch of small pieces, its like foam stuff. Pic: ImageUploadedByTapatalk1398727513.091558.jpg
So would i just be able to cut a sponge to fit? Would that work? Also do you think that is the problem with the stalling out when not choked? Here is a pic of a sticker on the top of the air-filter cover...ImageUploadedByTapatalk1398727604.442219.jpg

As far as the air filter goes I would just get a replacement part. You don't want to use something that might come apart quickly and clog your carb. When it stalls out when not choked I would adjust the settings on the carb.

There are usually two adjustment on most carbs for the era. You might do well to get some basic understanding on how a carb works and what the adjustments do.

Do yourself a favor and read thru this for educational purposes and then I bet you will be telling us how easy it was. :D

It's for the bigger carbs, but it'll teach the basics.

I got it off with some pliers, but do they sell a special tool to remove these?

Your supposed to pry it off with a flat blade screw driver (at least that's how I do it).
