B-112 Choke Routing

Recommended Posts

Anybody got a pic of how the choke adjustment wire hooks to the carburator and the routing of the wire after it leaves the engine compartment? Not sure if my 112 has the wrong choke wire or the wrong carburator, but I can't get it hooked up.

there is a screw clamp right at the furthest point of the gas cover on the frame before it goes to the engine compartment and carb. There should be two clamp screws on the carb. The cable on the b-112 DOES NOT use them. The cable attaches to the upper side of the choke butterfly. Hope this helps.

If you want a cable operated choke you can make a bracket that bolts to the bottom of the air cleaner retaining stud and attach a cable clamp to the bracket. Might have to drill a hole in the end of the choke lever if there isn't one beneath the plastic cap/cover on the end of the lever.

You have the medium Flo-Jet carb. Doesn't appear to be aftermarket, but it is for engines of 9hp and smaller. The correct carb is the large flow jet which has four screws holding the carburetor body together. Roy's suggestion for the choke will work, but you have the wrong choke shaft for your application. To drill a hole and use the long part of the lever, where the rubber is, you'd have to loop the cable and come straight up from the bottom. To use the current hole for choke (the little nub with the hole at the bottom of the choke lever), you'd have to loop the cable towards the front of the tractor and come in from the front. Otherwise your choke control would work backwards. Meaning in for choke and out for no choke. What might be a bigger problem is that it appears that you have the carb from an aluminum engine rather than from a cast iron engine. The difference is in the direction the throttle opens. On aluminum engines, the governer rod pushes up to throttle the engine down. On cast iron engines the governer rod pulls down to throttle the engine down. In your center photo it looks like the governer rod is pulled down (which should be idle position on a cast iron engine) but I see from the idle speed screw that the throttle is in wide open position. I can see that you have your throttle cable connected. Place the throttle control in wide open position. The idle speed screw should be in the vertical position shown in your photos. Rotate the throttle shaft counterclockwise to place the idle speed screw as close to horizontal as possible. You should notice a pretty fair amount of resistance to do so. If you have the wrong carb, and again with the throttle control in high speed position, the idle speed screw will be in a near horizontal position and you will feel a fair amount of resistance to rotate the throttle shaft clockwise to place the idle speed screw in the vertical position shown in your photos.

Here is a picture of the choke cable run on my B10 with a similar carb. It will give you a better understanding. I believe your choke cable would be backward though as pulling the cable would actually turn it off not on. [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v233/kismar/B10/20070428_00001.jpg[/IMG]

      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
