My carburetor in my PK 2414 quit idling. Gas tank is clean fuel hose is new, it must be the carburetor. I went to Walmart and picked some carb cleaner. They were out of the cheap Walmart brand so I ended up with CRC carb cleaner for twice as much.
I decided to do the quick cheap carb clean. I pulled it off and took the basics apart. I sprayed all the passage ways out. I checked the float while I had it apart and it looks as good as I can tell. The float needle had a nice black rubber tip with no indents. I could not find a manual on this site for my carb so I just did by seat of the pants work. I put the carb back together and it idles beautifully. I just used the default settings of main screw 2 turns out and idle adjustment 1 1/4 turns out as described in the PK manual under tune up.
The only problem I had was cleaning the carb before I took it off using brake cleaner. I was thinking brake cleaner would not take the paint off like carb cleaner. I was wrong. The paint crinkled and started flaking off on the carb.
I did not even fine tune the jet adjustments. I left them at their starting positions. The tractor runs better and idles nice now. It was worth the hour it took to clean the carb.
