  1. I have my k90 out of the rj59 rebuilding carb I've searched around and only see #16 carbs for them but never an #18 mines cast inside #18 I think I saved the carb ordered a gasket set and a replacement carb model #16 though. Has anyone ever heard a model #18?
  2. Well I put some fuel in the fuel line of the rj59 I looked up the casting on the rear and it turned out it's a Feb 5 1959 rj but any way pulled and pull nothing happened so I pulled the motor and the carb and it was just full of crusty hard stuff. Not a varnish but a hard flaky white crust. So should I soak this carb and rebuild or just buy a replacement if soak it what do you recommend carb cleaner did not even take it off. And should I just pull the motor apart and rebuild it or just go with it and check the gaps and run it
  3. Where the the wire connect to on the motor does it just connect to the top of the spark plug
  4. I'm looking to wire up the hood mounted kill switch where does the wire go to I see your points cap is like mine with a botton was that were the kill switch was on these
  5. Ok so I removed that random bracket off and came up with this I have a tab sticking off and asand asI turned it the Gov spring got tighter so I found a spot where things were neutral and made a cable clamp and that's what I ended up with I did lubricated the cable and housing. My glass fuel bowl was gummed up so I took it apart I need to make a new cork gasket unless they sell them and re do the fuel line also I seen there is no oil or mesh in the air filter so I read a few things in here and seen guys put stainless mesh and non detergent oil in the filters.
  6. What's missing with this carb linkage it doesn't seem right
  7. Suburban mower deck and unknown rear end.

    Hey will this fit a 57 58 rj58? Or 60 suburban your about 4 hours from me 18322
  8. Gattett is his name we couldn't javf asked for a better kid to have hes sp easy going, he is the reason I was able to bring both home my wife and grandma(my mom) helped to.
  9. Does anyone have a picture of a factory k90 throttle setup mine isn't right at the carb
  10. Hey I just got an rj58 with k90 engine the throttle linkage isn't right looking can someone post a picture or diagram of how the linkage is supposed to be setup. I have the factory throttle mounted on the hood. I'll post a picture of my setup later
  11. Thankfully for him was the reason I was able to get the pair ha I can't say thanks enough for the help I've been on forums for other things and their just is no one helpful, not here I found on here a smart belt stop even for the suburban A recoil pull start would be nice for the k90 instead of a rope pull where would I find one
  12. Yeah I do need the guards either I buy the factory for both of the tractors or make them. What's the link to where to buy them. And I'll have to make a tab for the belt to see if that let's the belt not grab the pulley. But I had to take the suburban for a spin so just started in gear and took for a spin haha the wife just laughed and walked away
  13. I see that tab I was looking at the rj and notice the tab on that kept the belt up off the pulley I'll have to make on up and yeah I need a gaurd lol and to move the exhaust no more hair on my calf
  14. The seat is soild I'm writing down all the numbers and part. How do I get this tractor into gear the tranny doesn't stop spinning with pedal pressed down. I put a new liner belt on so it would totally disengage but it still catches enough to spin the trans this is the one with the new Briggs motor
