  1. Super nice score!!! Is that the same one from the beginning of this thread? Customer for a diaphragm decided to sell?
  2. No, the hole isn't the same and the arm is different. You can switch to a ball type as it will bolt right on to the same carb body
  3. You can try soaking it in carb cleaner but new fuel line is fairly cheap
  4. You're not supposed to. The only way to access them is to split the tank open. Thought you had to do this before? All of them are a screen on the bottom of a small cone. Soak with carb cleaner in the tank. Then I use something like this connected with a fuel line to force flush the cleaner back and forth through the screen. Never had to open a tank yet. If the tube is filled with gunk you can use a fine wire to clean most of it out but BE CAREFUL not to poke it through the screen.
  5. Parchment paper is used for cooking/baking Jungle site is Amazon.com
  6. Make your own A circle paper cutter-- search on the jungle site for one Parchment paper is thin like those gaskets
  7. Yes. Disassemble the engine to access the reeds.
  8. Spark should be a sharp snapping blue color. if it isn't, try changing the condenser If it's still hard to turn as mentioned before you should try it with the spark plug out. It should now turn as easy as every other one does. If it's not, there's something binding inside from assembly and you will need to find out what that is and correct it.
  9. After rebuilding engines I know they pull "harder" because of the compression but not crazy hard to pull
  10. What are you powering with it? Sensitive computer equipment? Typical lights and motors ain't gonna care. The governor should limit the rpms so make sure it's not hanging up or something. You can probably add a screw where the cable would go for things like a drill or mini bike engine that uses a throttle cable if you need to limit the butterfly from opening.
  11. I just pinched them with my fingers and kinda twisted. I guess you could make a ring compressor from some thin sheet metal and a hose clamp to tap them in sorta like big engines.
  12. Some good reviews on the 110v Harbor Freight ones according to a guy I know. Not overly expensive. Spend good money on a good helmet though, you get what you pay for and welder's flash really sucks when it happens!!! Sell me one of your rare O&R tools (Cheap) to finance one! LoL I had a Hobart 140 using flux core wire before graduating to real 240v mig with Argon mix gas. It was great little machine for the "everyday" stuff but I would still stick weld any heavy structural type things. I'd like to learn how to TIG weld.
  13. Dam, that looks real good. Nice job! I agree that it would look funny if it was left shiny new compared to the rest. How did you finally attach the ring to the plate?
