Two More for a newbie ......

Recommended Posts

Added a couple this week..... First, I traded a nice Gravely 1238H and $100 for a 3212V, a 46" blade, 42" deck and a spare 3 speed chunk. The gravely was a freebie that I've only invested $35 in a new belt. That's a 7010 with a 3400 series hydro being rebuilt behind it......


Last night I gave $200 for this 3410s, another 46" blake and 42" deck. The blade is in really good shape. The deck shell is shot, but all the hardware is clean. PO teaches computer classes at a local college, says he's not mechanical ..... huge understatement. Check out the picture of the carb below.




I've got a new plug for this carb, but what's the right way to seal it in? Believe it or not, this things starts right up with NO SMOKE! The parking brake rod had also been burnt in half, and the tension pulleys/bracket had somehow been ripped off the frame. He gave me a file full of reciepts, including new piston/rings and all new ignition components and bgb rebuild in the early 90's.

On the carb plug and if the groove is clean, you can use a golf ball and seat the plug with a medium smack from a hammer and that should be it no sealant required.

Learned this trick from Bob here after trying and failing to successfully seat welch plugs. It works!
