I am trying to part together a JD 214 for me brother and sister-in-law.
I have taken it all part, cleaned, greased and repaint the whole 214.
I did not take the engine (K321) apart to look at the insides - which I should have.
I put the K321 in the 214 and got it to run.
It burning oil and blowing oil out the exhaust, needs to be rebiuld.
I have a K301 - 12 hp that I rebuild for a spare for me, for me 212.
I do not a have a carb (carter #26) for the K301, so I was trying to use the carb off the K321.
Which is a Walbro adjustable jets #60. Got the K301 running, but I can not keep the rpms down under 3600 rpms at full throttle. Go up over 4000 rpms. Runs great and low and mid range.
I think the Walbo is to big for the K301. From what I can find out the Walbro #60 went on the K321 (14hp) and K341 (16hp) and the Walbro #52 went on the K241 (10hp) and the K301 (12hp)
I do have several Carter #30 carbs that need to be rebuild.
Will I have the same problem as with the Walbro #60 carb?
I know the Carter #26 is the best carb for the K301, which I might have to got one.
If anybody else have this problem and what did you do to fix the problem.
