Carburetor Replacement

Recommended Posts

msdhomeplans@gmail.com

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!

 

Model Number L 156

Serial # 219222

 

Wheel Horse Lawn Ranger L-156

Tecumseh H60

1-cylinder
air-cooled
Displacement: 221 cc
13.53 ci
Bore/Stroke: 2.625x2.50 inches
67 x 64 mm
Power: 6 hp
4.5 kW
Starter volts: 12

Techy carb # 631067A

 

Just a leak may just need gasket and repair set 31840

 

Lots of cheap knock offs around.  Some work well others not so well you pays your money you take your chance.

 

 I usually try to repair the original first

 

Knock off and original

I'd second the advice of trying to repair what you have.   

Properly diagnose the actual issue before doing any repair.  (On anything really).

Once the carb is dis-assembled, hold it near your ear (or in my case, the good ear) shake it and listen for the sound of the check ball in the emulsifier tube to RATTLE - if there is NO sound, it is stuck and there is no positive way to clear that passage - time for a different carb. BT,DT

Someone here did a thread on drilling out the brass pin that captures that ball and using a small machine screw to seal the emulsifier tube back up after cleaning it out.

@squonk? @stevasaurus?

 

The issue is that the emulsifiers fuel passages (both the entry and exit) are extremely small.

Only time I've succeeded getting one unclogged was after a longish session in a friend's ultrasonic tank (too bad he's moved away and I'm too cheap to get my own).

I think this is what you are asking about.  @rmaynard  This thread is in the Reference Section / Engines.

I have tried to fix three of these, they all had a steel ball plugging that passage.

Used a Dremel with carbide burr, took considerable time. You have an aluminum

carb body with a black oxide coated pin in that passage. With water in the gas and

resideing in the carb for who know how long it is a recipe for trouble.

Wish they had used something else for the plug. At least the ones I tried were that

way.

      I am selling a 1970 Wheel Horse Electro 12. It is in *working condition*.
      It has AG tires and a mid-mount blade from wheel horse. 
      It also has a front mounted generator that currently doesnt put out power. It has been in the barn quite a while, so it may be a corroded connection,  not sure. Although there's not too much that goes wrong with them. 
      The tractor has been a great one for me. The last 6ish 7ish years that I've had it where I lived it brought the gravel back up my driveway for me every time it rained. In the last few months, it would run for 20-30min then die.
      I was moving at the time so just didn't have the time to look at it. And it seems I still don't. Where I am currently I don't have a place for it. I don't want it setting out and deteriorating. So here we are.
      Please contact me by text or email. 
      Thanks for looking!

      i know that there is ebb and flow with market conditions, but I have been seeing bargain 520 and c-160 prices more common. I recently saw a c-160 like model on a place other than here that was close by, but i did not get a chance to see it as I was still on a medical tether getting care. i say c-i60 like model because it was a series of numbers like 4455 or somesuch .Tractor had the k series engine clearly a sixteen HP and came with a decent looking deck and pusher blade. i called my buddy Jay and told him for the $250 ask , he better hustle after it. i really do not know if he did.
        I also have been seeing 520s and such lower than I can remember as well as the D series..My theory is that people experiencing paycheck to paycheck living are increasing in number.
      You even are seeing a lot more older trucks like square bodies and especially big blocks than you did before. we used to see this a lot in new trucks when fuel prices hit records.
      i am not claiming expert status on this, but it seems to be trending this way one county next to indiana and 90 miles North of the Ohio River.
       Tell me what you are seeing out there and what you think. 
           Edit:  Jay and I ran up to buy Bob Ellison's tractor in MI.  Bob was very nice to deal with and included his "last seat"   I got super lucky buying my first C-160 that did not start and another one shortly dropped in to keep it company. The tractor described above was listed for only two days and was gone
