Where would one find
Carb kits for those Carter N carbs.
I've looked a bit, but no luck.
I'd like to have one on hand.


Give Bob a try he's a sponsor.

Thanks.
I was his site earlier, but did not find what I was lookin for.
I wasn't aware that Bob was member as well.
I will PM him.
I'm guessing he doesn't have all his goodies catalogued on the web site. Lotta work.

Had some of those shiney hub caps up on the shelf, waiting for the right
tractor to put them on. So I put them on the 8E, and took her out into the sun.
I think they look just right on the Executive.

Don't leave her out there too long, that sun is brutal. She might have a heat stroke or something. Looks great. Thanks.

That's a great looking tractor. Thanks for the pics (and making us jealous) :D

One more question, how is the seat bolted on? Is it like the other massey's or is it a single bolt in the middle of the seat?

I think I saw a Carter kit for Kohlers in the Napa catalog. Unfortunately it's at work, so I won't get to it until Monday. Check with your local Napa to see what they may have.

Looks really good, that one cleaned up great, good stuff.

If you search "NAPA online.com" down in the states you can browse there parts books for all there stuff.
Goto small engines and you can see all they have for Kohler's and the others.
Take the US part# to a Canadian Napa store and they can get it.

I've found that is you ask for a part for a car truck or small engine lot's of times they can't find it, but if you look for it yourself you can most times find it, at least that's what I've found over the last few yrs.
