2 cycl carburator

Recommended Posts


What could I be missing, can not prim fuel through carburetor , carb. is clean no restrictions, prim bulb does work. what is the setting for the inlet needle valve ? can not for the life of me figure it out... Test made on bulb brings fuel right up from tank, return line clear, no problem with fuel tank vent, diaphragms good condition, can not buy parts for this machine Solo 471 KAT NR 002818-01, carburetor is a Bing. Looks a lot like Husky equipment, machine was made in Germany, I think Husky was also. If anyone has had a similar problem with 2 cycles please comment.

Solo USA still has a parts list up for this machine.  If they still have the part, you will probably have to order it through a dealer. Try Meyer Seed Co in Baltimore, 410-342-4224. Tell whoever answers the phone that you need solo parts and ask for John. Good luck.

      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
