I may have just gotten a carb that is rebuildable, don't know yet! I'll have to make sure it is the right size. Give me a bit to check it over.

I haven't taken it apart as yet, but it is on a K341 I just picked up. Kinda chilly out there! I'll go back out in a bit!

I pulled the bowl and it had dried up gas in it, so it will need a kit most likely. Will this work for you:

If so, shoot me a PM on where to send it!

You and the guys on this forum are the greatest. Thanks for all your doing for Her. Hopefully it will brighten her Holiday some. 

I'd be curious to know how that barn fire started.

Chris, we all have a soft spot and like to help if possible. Collectively, we can move mountains if the need arises!

she is very grateful for all of the help she is given. she was in tears when I told her I had it all running and that she would be able to use it. I even told her I would paint it and she said "absolutely not I want it just the way it is". the fire started by a little electric heater. it shorted out.

I don't blame her for wanting that tractor's "fire patina" to help tell about her terrible loss! What a story it has to tell surviving (with the help from y'all) the fire and rising from the ashes!

if all of you guys and gals want to see what Tiffanie does you can look at her candles, warmers, tarts, etc. on facebook. she makes all of her own scents all naturally. she is very talented at this and takes great pride in her work. if you want to order something she does ship everywhere in the u.s, she is kinda limited right now on what she can make since the fire, but she is still plugging away and is replacing stuff alittle at a time. her facebook acct is.... www.facebook.com/LACandlecubby.... check it out!!

I "liked" her page. She makes some cool stuff. There's a few pics of the burned out shop being torn down.

If it is the right carb, I'll volunteer my time and carb kit, to a total rebuild.  Ship it back to you all shiny and new...   :thumbs:

another update on the tractor..  KennyP donated a carb to replace the worn out one that was on it. I let it soak in chem-dip the last 2 nites. got it all cleaned up and on the tractor today. it runs great and I can finally idle it down now. VERY HAPPY FOR ALL THE HELP AND GENEROUSITY FROM ALL OF YOU!!!  AND SHE IS VERY THANKFUL ALSO!! she says she cant wait to mow with it this spring.
