I did , and no I didn't know about the resto of this . Do you know where?

If you do have a spare tunnel , I would surely be interested .
Looking it over today , I found the carb linkage to be fouled up and it fires but wont run , probably due to the fuel line being routed wrong . Its nothing I can't figure out.


your lucky I found it! looks like the same tractor

It does look like the very tractor I have now ! Really a nice job on most of it . It has been changed since then with a chrome stack and the Ags on the front . Someone really botched up a carb. change and put a plastic tank on it , but I think I can fix those things. Thanks for finding that Jabel!

The porter is running great. Rebuilt the carb. I need to get new drive belts. Old ones suck. I need to get the deck bracket welded and that's ready to go.

It's good to see the old Porter Cable working. I don't have any attachments for the one I'm working on, but a sweeper would be ideal to tow behind it. Thanks for posting the pics, Dayton.

Great way to get an older tractor to work. I keep thinking that a lawn sweeper is something that would be good to try.

I forgot to write it down, does anyone have the correct part number for the 1958 5 3/4 hp Briggs flojet carb kit?
