Digging out some snow gear. Blade, brush, chains, etc. No finished pix here, might get some later if I want to drag tractors out again, sorry. Just a note on the Speedex. Have had the Briggs leak gas at carb for 2 yrs and never left gas on and had to keep turning on and off all the time or big dripping. While I had out for blade took that thing off and re-adjust the float to Non-Standard setting and put back together hoping it would not be a problem. MAN....that thing runs much better now. No dripping at any time. Throttles up much cleaner and smoother, doesn't seem to change tune after warm up and such, and starts instantly. Should have done long ago. I like tractor even MORE now that it is running so good. Barely had to teak the hi-speed to smooth out, had it open more when tearing down, and once run, the idle could be set down lower and not die off, it's great!

Glad to hear you made a ton of headway on that.  A leaking carb is a real PITA.  Has one that kept filling the crankcase with gas while it was running.  Had a heck of a time getting that one stopped but like yours, float setting.

I am not ready to think of snow gear yet. I usually wait until I actually see snow.
