HELP: Need advice on carb repair AC B-10

Recommended Posts

meck
Finally, after getting closer and closer over the years, the needle valve completely stripped out of the carb. housing on my B-10 with the B & S engine What stripped is not the valve, but the piece/nut through which it threads and that then threads into the carb housing. The threads in the carb housing are gone, completely slick. I can use some advice on a good fix for this problem before I go to messing with it on my own. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks

Double check the threads in the carb housing. Haven't seen them strip out very often. Most generally the nut strips, leaving it's threads in the carb body so it only APPEARS as if the carb body is stripped.

I agree, a new carb will greatly improve performance. The throttle shaft will be nice and tight, and all jets are clean.

John I agree with Pat.... check that the threads are just filled with material from the nut. If you decide to toss it and get a new carb let me know as I need the top half of a four screw flo-jet carb! Larry

Thanks for the responses. It is, in fact, the threads in the carb body that are stripped. The nut looks fine even though it looks like it is also aluminum. I may have to buy another carb., but, first, I'll try a couple of attempts at cheap fixes. In the meantime, I won't be having this one or parts from it for sale. Thanks again

3M makes an epoxy thread repair kit. You put a tread release agent solution on the bolt/jet threads then you apply the epoxy to the bolt/jet and thread in. After a few min you tread the bolt/jet back out and allow the epoxy to finish drying then you can tread the bolt/jet back in and it should hold.

      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 
      Paul
