Oh, and I was wrong about someone drilling extra holes in the engine carrier.  The manual indicates they belong there.  Now I am wondering why they don't fit the Clinton bolt pattern.

Was thinking about that this morning, i think your Clinton took the other sump base with the smaller mounting holes.

I can measure the one one i have for you to compare.

Well, that was one of the shortest mysteries.  I had the engine off the 40 today to change the base gasket and noticed it has exactly the same holes.  In fact, the engine carrier platform is identical to the one on the 20.  Guess that explains why the outer bolt holes don't match up with the Clinton.  They are for the Wisconsin.   Guess that also means they are not alterations for a previous re-power, but factory.

I thought I hadn't taken any "before" photos of the carb.  Again, I was wrong.  Here they are.

Didn't have much time left after changing the base gasket on the 40, so I made a governor mechanism for the 20.  It is far from perfect, but it will work (hopefully) until the OEM parts arrive.

No, the Wisconsin is OEM for the Model 40, and the Clinton was OEM for the Model 20.  Waterloo just used the same engine carrier on both tractors.  Guess it is easier & cheaper to use one part for all models.

I need to rig the throttle cable & the kill wire.  But, first I have to make a stop button ...

Yes, always good to have a Stop plan in place, before Go.

Two steps forward. One step backward.  I got the gas tank on and the fuel line run, but then I got ambushed by a leaking carb.  Now I need to re-do some paint.  Anyone know how to keep gas from ruining a rattle-can paint job?  I used a rattle-can clear coat that says "oil & gas resistant".  Didn't resist for very long.

Nope, even after a 6 day cure is still eats it, sand it using different grades, tape off and repaint.

 

I don't bother painting carbs, these new paint is nothing like the old leaded paint.

Although, there is a neat trix i learned from other restros.

 

To keep the carb from corroding again paint it inside and out with fuel tank sealer, if i remember correctly Por 15 is clear coating but i could be thinking of a different one, Kreem mabey ?

 

Could be tried on top of the paint ?

I use only Van-sickle paint.  Have little to no problems with gas harming it.  And yes I spray all my stuff with a can.

Does it come in stock colours only or can you get it tinted?

You can order it and have them custom blend it but be prepared to spend a few $$$, next to the Zinc Chromate for aluminum and other i forget the names of the Van-Sickle is well worth it.

I don't think you can get it tinted, but it comes in a zillion colors, and I think if you want enough they would make it for you. they have a pretty good website, and I know theres at least one dealer for them up in Canada.
