I need a new carburetor or a better understanding of how this one works. I dont want to spend $200 for a new one. But mine needs major work and im not sure how it works. Its a unique carb

Whats wrong with it exactly?

There's overhaul kits to replace the needles and gaskets as well as options to replace upper & lower halfs of the carb.

 

Does your engine run at all with the carb on? Have you had it apart to clean inside?

It works just not well. I think the choke lever is installed wrong because based on pics it appears to be backwards or beoken. Also the lever on the dash that says idle to fast might be on wrong. It works but i dont think it hooked up properly because the springs dont move. Also what i think is the throttle kill isnt hooked up to anything. I have the exploded parts manual but it doesnt help much. I need a video or photos to show how everything should be connected and how to adjust idle. Im used to small carbs with a high and low needles. This one is different or just confusing. Starting the tractor is quiet the task.

I guess i need to unserstand how the governor and carb work together. Im used to carbs controling everything all in one piece. My governor springs dont do anything and my throttle stop on carb is attached to governor. But doesnt move when i move the governor lever. Explode manual doenst show how everything should be installed. I need pics or a video
