A few months ago I bought this Agco Allis 918H from fellow member Mike aka Case442. When I bought the tractor the engine would run but only with full choke. After running for a few minutes and warming up the engine would bog down and stall. Mike had told me that the tractor had sat for 10+ years so I knew it was running bad due to a dirty carb.


First I tried to take the carb apart to clean the inside but two of the bowl bolts stripped so I couldn't get them out. Discouraged I tried a few different tricks in an attempt to clear what ever the blockage was. They didn't work.


Since I couldn't get the bolts out and had nothing to lose I decided to drill out the bolt heads. Of course after I drilled through the bolt heads the bolts turned out by hand. The inside of the of the carb was nasty. There was a lot of chunks of what was left over from the old gas drying up. To be honest I'm surprised the engine even ran at all. I got lucky and was able to replace the bowl bolts with two that came from an Onan carb.


After getting everything back together, the engine runs like new. Now I just need to get a deck drive belt and I'll be set for next year.

Nice work! That machine is one of the best out there...the result of 30 years of making what works, better and better.
