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!

Nope 

Semi-direct EFI .

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!

      Hi,
       
      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) 
       
      thanks

      Hello all I am in the market for a carburetor for my clinton 1200. Does anyone out there have one?
    • By WHX21
      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?
       
      Thoughts?
       Thank you
      Brian
