UHOH carb mounting screws gone in my Ultima

Recommended Posts

Mowed hard an left 1920 behind the barn. Later I went down to bull into cover and she started for a brief time and run putrid finally dying. When I cranked it again she freewheeled with no compression. I opened the hood and checked the carb cover and she moved in my hand. I opened it and it rotated on the one remaining bolt. Three were gone down into the intake manifold. Maybe I got lucky and they are in the intake valves.

Thanks for the support Dutch the no compression was a good sign, maybe lodged in the valves. Pulled the shields and heads. Nice thing about the Ultima is you don't have to pull the engine. Big fear was the screws got past the valves and scored the cylinders. There they were holding the intake valves open. Pulled the intake manifold and levering the valve open, took a magnetized screwdriver and lifted them out. Buttoned it back up with new head and intake gaskets, and she fired up strong. That 20hp Magnum is leaking a little oil around the breather and or the fuel pump gaskets. Thats the next project.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
