Fuel line goes through the tank bracket hole and then behind the shroud next to the cooling fins.
Dont have any pics of the carbs saved on file maybe someone else can chime in and help, if you got the rebuild kit from me there was an instruction sheet that should show float setting, the float does keep the needle valve in place
The lack of engine power could still be carb or valve issues, have you checked the carb for warped sides?
I did not buy from you. I had found this kit in the stuff that came with the tractor and decided to replace a few gaskets in the carb. I think the previous guy tried to rebuild it. I did check for warped surfaces using a ruler and checking it in an X pattern. Everything seemed flat. I did not check the flange that connects to the elbow. Ill take it off and check. You know, the more I think about this, the more questions I have. I am going to take my carb back off and take it apart and take more pictures of how I have it set up. I feel like I am missing something.
I believe the fuel line should be routed across behing the flywheel if it is the same as a TRA10D - http://gardentractor...project/page-28 post 415 pictures 7 and 8. The fuel line does a 90 degree bend and goes on to the carb inlet fitting on the right hand side and the left side pushes on to the fuel tank valve - http://gardentractor...project/page-29 post 423 figure 4 and http://gardentractor...project/page-31 post 461 figure 8. I added a fuel filter just after the fuel tank shut off valve on mine - hope this helps. If you do not have the heat shield that you were missing on the right side of the engine that is painted ivory on my engine you could have things getting hot that may cause a vapour lock problem - just a thought.
Chev! Perfect! Thank you! All your posts are like picture books. I love them! This is exactly what I was looking for. I did get the heat shield I was missing. Which has improved the heat distribution immensely. I don't have that screen on my flywheel though. Gonna look into making me one.
Thanks again guys, Ill be back on here tomorrow with some pictures.
