B&S Carburetors

Recommended Posts

Just a warning to anyone disassembling a B&S carb on a 10, 12, or 14 cast-iron engine without the aid of a manual. The top has 4 screws attaching it to the body. Before you take the screws out and try to separate the two parts you must remove the needle valve on the lower front of the carb and then the tube that it fits in. This tube runs from the body up into the top and will be damaged if you attempt to force the top off. Tim

Hi Tim, Thanks for posting your message as I was later today going to go through my carb. Infact I was gathering my tools. Thanks again for the warning and I now know what to check for. Your friend Jackl

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
