Carbs

I would assume so. I've owned it for about 4 years but haven't had the time or money and now the space to really do anything with it. Do you handle stuff this old? The carbs were rebuilt before I bought it but whatever was put in the fuel did a number on them.

Seems to be leaking, float too high, or stuck float. Is it burbeling, running rich?

Carb kits

are only $10 each, that and a gallon of carb soak will do the job. I don't keep them in stock (not real popular) but they can be ordered. There isn't a more simple carburetor to work on than a solex, not much to them.

Thanks Hamp

I'll take a look this weekend and let you know. I have one gasket to replace on the motor but need to drop the motor to get to it. Throws oil but doesn't burn any.

pulling the motor,

there is only four bolts that hold the motor to the transaxle, it's all of the cooling tin on those things thats a pain in the ass. Where is it leaking, the rear main seal? That is the only reason I can think of for pulling the motor.

Paid Extra

I paid extra for the tails on the zips!! All of what you see is the way she came. The jets are fouled with whatever so they will both be coming off. I have replaced the lines and flushed the tank. Held out hope that the carbs would be ok but no luck. Got busy after that and haven't had a chance to do anything with it.

pair a dikes (that spelled with a Y?) wd40.. your set brother an couple old belts to use as leather bearings (cut down and stick in the race) wire together for fan belt.. Good to go.. oh yeah and oil.. lots of oil seems to help.. when you start burning it, you don't have to do that pesky oil change thing anymore..

Solex

They are Solex. And yes it is 2 zips end to end holding the coil on. Thank you very much!! Sam I have tucked the green wire into one of the zip ties just for you. Don't ya feel special? I did buy a bale of baling twine the other day. No wire.
