winterizing

I want to mount a side shield on my hood to cover the side of the carb so the throttle doesn't freeze up while blowing snow (last year was the first year it ever did) but I don't use the original muffler. I use a regular round briggs muffler that comes straight out so the original shield, if I built one, wont work. I know there are many others that use the same muffler as I do. Does any one have an idea for a shield or know of an idea that some one has allready come up with?

Bruce, Last year I had the same problem with my carb. Got a template of a winter shield and modified it to fit, wasn't too much modification just a bit of metal off from around the muffler.

Thanks, my tractor is a newer model but seeing this adds to the list of ideas. I know I'll come up with something but I wanted to see what is out there. What's holding the shield on? It doesn't look like it is attached to the hood in any way. Air cleaner??

Brucep, I have the drawing for this shield, it is designed to fit the Nelson Muffler though. As stated by Kserver, a slight modification will be all that's needed. If you want the drawing, let me know. Mike

Mike, sure I'll take a drawing. It will save me some time and work and I'm sure I can modify it to fit. Sure appreciate it. Bruce

Hi, The shields definitely work. If you get caught without one, shooting WD40 on the linkage and carb shaft keeps the ice and snow from stickint on these parts. Doesn't work as well as the shield, and you may have to respray in a half hour or so, but it beats not having the governor work. I would assume any penetrating oil or light oil would do the same. BTW Nice job on the shield. Al Eden
