It runs !!!!. It had new points and condenser in it already,the wire running from coil to condenser was bad, runs smooth and no noises or smoke, that is until it flooded out.float must have stuck.anyway made good progress.

Glad to hear this! What are using for a fuel pump? Onan floats will not take much pressure to bend them.

I don't think that would do it. Might have a hole in the float if it's brass.

Hi if the carb is original / never OH it will have a plastic / fiber float and they are trouble some if that's what's in it a new brass replacement is a good way to go. One thing to check with the old float is to make sure its not contacting the float bowl walls and hanging up as posted its easy to bend them out of shape.

Good deal on getting it running its nice when its a simple fix that is easy to find and repair.

Hi I forgot to say that you can remove the 4 screws in the top of the carb and lift the top off along with the float assy, you can pretty well clean it up and check things out that way, to remove the complete carb requires removing the intake manifold to get at the carb mount bolts and that means new intake gaskets unless your very lucky and they don't brake. Here's a link to the replacement float I used and its been working good, another thing the fuel pumps on the MS DD carb are weak at best so they can struggle to get gas from the tank to the carb, originally Sears / Roper had no inline filter there is a screen it the tank outlet, I had so much trouble I installed an electric pump and that cured lots of problems but if you go that route the pulse pump needs to be disabled or there will be to much pressure for the float needle assy.

Good deal its nice when its a simple fix and having the brass float means you should have no problems with that, sounds like you have a good machine for a bargain price.  :dancingbanana: :wave:

I usually dont get so lucky so im pleased with the outcome. I greased up the deck today too. Everything looks,felt good,i do believe all thats needed is the blades sharpend. Yesterday i cleaned the gas tank.i had to punch a bunch of 5/16 holes in 1/4 inch plate,i kept all the slugs from the metal muncher. I poured a bunch in the tank with a little water and shook it till i was about dead. It cleaned it up good.hell of a way to get it done.lol
