i am new to this site and cant find specifically where to post, so i apologize if im posting in the wrong spot. i need help with my gravely. its a 1963 7.6 super convertible walk behind i do not know what motor it has the tag is gone. i can get it to fire by putting fuel down the cylinder. but as soon as the carb kicks in it flood the cylinder with si much fuel i can take the spark plug out and shoot fuel six feet in the air. i have taken the entire carb apart and cleaned every thing and put on a new gasket, set all valves closed. i started turning all valves open little by little. i had it running for about 24 seconds then it died. so adjust the air and fuel again. flooded. turned them back again and did one by one. again flooded. start all over. this time doing one adjustement then the other. eventually flooded again. it gets sooo much fuel i fill the cylinder and it spits it out of the exaust.
the carb is cast aluminum and brass floats, the float is good.
if you need further information tell me how to find it on the tractor. the motor i can take a pick of and figure out how to post if needed.
