Well finally got to do some work on the tractor today. First I had been waiting on carburetor rebuild parts, then I needed the time, so now that the holidays have passed there should be more movement.
I rebuilt the carb with the new parts. New needles, jets, springs, and gaskets. I had to use my tap and die tool set I got for Christmas to re-tap some threads where the main jet went. The old one was stuck and I had to drill it out to remove it.
I halfheartedly bolted it in place for now, I’ll tighten it up before I try to get the engine running again.
