  1. There were 2 different sizes used 1/16 or 3/32 ball bearings. You can find them in the drawers at an old school hardware store (if there are any left around you)
  2. You're welcome ! Glad you finally got her going.
  3. Does anybody know the size of the check ball in the carburetor



  4. It wasn't a big event. Just at a guy's house but yeah, it definitely got some attention. I enjoy explaining what they are, answering questions and trying to generate interest in them
  5. Didn't have time to really set up the display so they ended up scattered on the trailer. There was still a couple left in the van.
  6. Ah man, wish I knew it was missing the metal diaphragm disc. The arm can wear the diaphragm but it can work and run without it. Make sure the thin plastic check valve (#6) is on top of the gasket. It seals the little hole on the diaphragm body
  7. Here's the list of more that's going. I'm hoping to generate some more people's interest in O&R stuff and the best way is to let them see a bunch of the applications available and how cool these little things are. That's how I got into it when a couple of them were sitting on a shelf where I went to buy something else.

  8. Yes. I'd prefer having the smaller Buffalo Turbine one but ...
  9. This WAS a nice NOS chicken power unit in the original box too It's been packed way in the back and has been there for a very long time. 2012 maybe? Pulled it out today and discovered the ruined unit. Mice made a home in the box and the urine covered thing now needs a complete overhaul and paint.
  10. Next Saturday is a smaller get together up in Maine so figured I'd bring up some of the stuff that doesn't go to the big shows. They haven't seen the light of day in a LONG time so it'll be nice for people to see them. They're too small and expensive to leave unattended at the big shows although I have never heard of any stealing of anything at any of them. Just a small sample and will probably bring about 20-25 tools or so depending on available time to get them out.

  11. Those rubber pad arms are the newer type and difficult to find as there were not near as many produced. They tried to band aid the carb again with that fix instead of the ball. You can try sending a PM to @Mike in NC as he recently posted a big parts find and may have something in there for you. He never mentioned if he was going to sell anything or not but worth a try. A product called Seal-All will stand up to the fuel or Yamabond sealer to try and glue it . Since I'm always working on bush fixes for unobtainable things, I was looking at the Kohler carb float valves. They have a rubber tip on them which is about the same size. Never tried it yet but if it can be cut off clean and flat, then poke the point (may need to be sanded or cut a little) through the arm hole, Use a solder iron or something to melt the rubber to lock it in the hole. Small RC check valve or valves in the fuel line before the carb? Changing the diaphragm body to a ball type. It will bolt right on
  12. Or, just in case it disappears like a sock from the dryer! No one knows how it happens but we all know it does happen. LoL Once it's all back together use a piece of fuel line connected to the inlet and try to blow in it. It should only allow air to pass when the primer button is pushed. If it's allowing air to pass otherwise it's not sealing and therefore not check valving. Some carbs allow the cover to push down on the little arm ever so slightly too. I typically don't use a paper gasket along with the diaphragm but I do add one when this condition occurs. It's an easy solve compared to trying to bend that little arm.
  13. There were 2 different sizes but I "believe" yours would be the smaller of the 2 . They are 1/16 and 3/32 ball bearings. They can be found at old school type hardware stores with all the little parts in the drawers.
  14. The little steel ball bearing in the carb is not sealing. You can see the bearing in the carb pic above. That ball bearing sitting in the hole is the check valve. If fuel is pushing back past the ball, you can see it travel towards the tank. If the ball is sealing well, the fuel will travel through the carb to the engine. Getting that ball to seal better will help with performance of the engine.
  15. All appear to be Little Wonder trimmers. ( Or at minimum the same thing because many O&R tools were simply branded different. ) The later type engines are 13B Scroll through this for info concerning the different engines
