Carb adjusting tool kits

Recommended Posts

So with all these weed eaters, chainsaws, leaf blowers and whatever we have  that have these pesky Walbro's or what not carbs that are not supposed to ever require adjustment I need to get one of these.

So does a guy just get the 21 tooth spline or the whole set "just to have"?

None of my two strokes have anything but the spline?? ....Thoughts, comments?

Tired of trying to use a piece of rubber tube.

Well, you can NEVER have too many tools, and the man with the most toys wins,

I think tools can be added to the toys, so GO FOR ALL OF THEM!

There are some nice carbon adjusting tool kits fairly cheep on evilbay. I bought a 4 tool kit that has worked on all the ones I have. Around $10 shipped to the door

All adjustments are done on a laptop through an aftermarket fuel controller .

I have been known to take a large, heavy golf club to old Solex carbs , as well as a few of the Holley/Weber knockoffs ....stand on the fenders just right and you can launch one a good 30yds if you can get a clean swing at it ..

I made adjusters of different sizes out of brazing rod with different size electrical butt connectors on the ends of them- they slip on tightly and have more than enough grip to turn the screws- Thanks- Al

Thanks Al good idea. I fired up the crapsman leaf blower last nite to dust off a little snow off the sidewalk. and it didn't run quite right and I know those little screws just need a tweeking. They are pretty tight so the rubber hose trick didn't work making me wish I woulda ordered a set!

      I have a  NOS Kohler / Carter carb and air cleaner (no. 4147804 for sale). 
       
      This will fit, I believe,  K181 applications and perhaps others.
       
      Will forward pics upon request.

      Has anyone ever used one of these replacement Kohler carbs from Amazon?  Went ahead and ordered one for my 16 HP K341.  The throttle shaft on the old one has so much play that I'm surprised the thing even runs at all.  I've heard plenty of good reviews and also plenty of jeers claiming they are cheap and don't work as well.  Looks like an exact copy of the Kohler carb.  I guess we'll see for certain tomorrow when I get it put on...

      Thanks for starting this section @nylyon and Mike @prondzy for suggesting it so with thanks given I would like to kick it off by  seeing pics or comments on your favorite piece of shop equipment or tool(s). You know something that you couldn't work on horses without or that they would have to pry it out of your cold dead hands. It can be more than one thing of course! Pics of mine to follow.

      So I just purchased a nicely running WH 212-6 (32-12 K601) and I am in the process of performing some maintenance on the tractor as there were a few TLC issues.

      The carb is leaking some gas and I suspected it would be the main O-ring for the bowl and indeed when I opened it the gasket simply was not there.   My main question is in reference to the float.  The float is not level when removing the bowl rather it is tilted downward at an angle from the pin.  Should the float be level once the bowl is removed?

      If so what is the best way to remove the pin and the relevel the float.  

      There is a great diagram for the carburetor here:

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks!
