Carb Problem

Recommended Posts


I have finished the restoration of my 914H. Now lI am starting to work on a B210 a good friend gave me. Took off the tank and the carb took out the 4 screws on top of the carb and tried to separate the top from the bottom. It will separate by a 1/16th of an inch and no further even with a screwdriver tip to help pry. Is there something holding it I don't know a bought? It is a Briggs engine.

The emulsion tube goes through the lower body of the carb into the top. You have to remove the screw and nozzle from the bottom to get to the emulsion tube. It is brass, so it will strip easily. Make sure you have a screwdriver that fits EXACTLY into the slot on the emulsion tube, even if you have to grind one to fit. If it doesn't fit, you'll strip the emulsion tube and not be able to use the lower body.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
