Will this work?

Recommended Posts

I noticed that the plug was knocked out of the Carburetor intake when I got it home Sunday.

I fabricated a plug out of the bottom of a soda can and epoxied it in place.

Will this work or will it blow out with the first backfire?

I have taken those plugs out of one carb and installed them in another. I just recently sent johnmonkey a plug that I knocked out of an old carb body. They should be readily available at a small engine shop. I have used plastic caps that were taped on when I didn't have the right plug laying around. Whenever I install a new one, I always make sure to stake it in about 6 spots so that it won't come out on its own.

The "pcv" tube (not sure if that is correct) or tube that is supposed to be attached to the valve cover is missing and "they" covered the hole in the carb intake with tape. Once I get this thing running I am going to rig something to replace the tube.

      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
