I have pulled the Carter N series carb from the 110 John Deere.
Not a pretty sight.
The fuel cap had cracked, got a gob of J-B Weld on it so an attempt to repair the cap was made. Water got into the fuel tank, ran into the carburetor.
I imagine some of You may know where this is going by now.
I removed the float bowl, the float was froze into place, along with being smashed from water forming into ice.
I set the carb into a coffee jug filled with vinegar. WOW, after a day, the needle valve loosened up and the float would swing on its pivot,another day of soaking and I got the pivot pin out.
So far, all is fine and dandy.
Another day of soaking and, the choke and also the throttles butterfly shafts are seized in their bores.
Is there any hope that these shafts will ever turn free again or, is a new to Me carb body in order ?
That is the question of the day.
OH Yeah, also, the chokes butterfly has chunks rusted out of it.
