New to me 753 Carb questions

Recommended Posts


I just got a 1963 Wheel Horse Model 753. It has a K161 with a Carter Model N carb. Its my first Wheel Horse and I was looking for some advice.  It runs great, starts right up, idles good, accelerates fine... but after running for 1/2 hour or so when going full throttle the engines sputters just a little bit.  Does anyone know what to do?  Its not a problem just annoying to me.  I have adjusted the carburetor best I can. I made it have a slower idle speed and normal fuel to air mix.  Any thoughts?? Thanks

So it runs perfectly before 1/2 an hour?

      Hi I am trying to resurrect my fathers 1966 wheel horse lawn ranger.  I have gas leaking from the carburetor and I need a replacement.  I can not seem to find any accurate resources for the correct one needed. 
      Here are the specs for the tractor.  I am also in need of a seat for it if you know which work for this model.  
      Thanks in advance!

      my throttle return spring is basically useless.
      3 questions; 
      - if I remove the throttle butterfly screw that holds the shaft in there, do I need to use loctite or similar when putting it back ? 
      - I cannot find any reference online or anywhere to the model of carb I have; 676794 or 676704 (attached pic), are those springs normally standard (any link to a replacement would be great)
      the rest of the carburetor is not in that good of a shape, I see all bunch of cheap carb around on ebay but again, none that match my part number.  Other than the throttle/choke/fuel line, can I safely replace mine with another model assuming it's built for the same engine size (10hp).
      my current block is a sbh-225 (hh100) installed on a raider 10 (69-70)

      Developed a little gas leak on a K301 carb this weekend so decided it was due for a long overdue cleaning. While I was at it had a carb off a 241 that I might as well go through for a ready spare on the shelf. Question here is the best way to bush the throttle shaft. These both had the removable linkage  so hopefully no need to take the throttle plate off.   Carb on the left has brass/bronze washers around the shaft so does this mean a PO had put them there?  The one on the left has that recessed area where they might fit in? Is the small stepped area on the one on the right a bushing that must come out? I know Dan @Achto has recently done this on his Raider 12 resto so hopefully he'll chime in to elaborate.

      Hello, my new to me C-160 seems to surge a little when idling at half and full throttle. It also bogs if I go from low idle to full throttle quickly. I moved the governor back and forth with my hand then started it and right after it would go from low to high normally, then later it had trouble again. The surging also seemed to be less when I messed with the governor and the spring but doesn't go away. I plan to clean and maybe rebuild the carburetor and adjust everything. I've never done this on a tractor before. What rebuild kit do I need for the carburetor and is there anything else I should consider doing or get. I have a K series pdf manual that explains the maintenance so I'd like to go through and do everything. I just don't want to mess anything up because it seems to be in decent running condition aside from maybe cleaning up and making adjustments. I've changed the oil and transmission fluid and am moving on to the fuel system. Any help and suggestions are much appreciated.

      Hello, I have a D 200. It has been running great, I was having a hard time starting it and I replace the filter and fuel pump. Adjusted the carb, and now under heavy load she will bog down and stall. If you are just driving seams fine, but if you tow a trailer with the mower, I boggs and stalls? Carb Issue or Fuel Pump?
       Thank you
