Just need to cover the basics, and all the bases. Why do say that you need to pickup another carb now? Your original Marvel-Schebler carb is the best thing since sliced bread. Todays' aftermarket ones are mostly Cheena made junky clones manufactured poorly. You had the right idea to remove and rebuild it. The trick is to let it soak for several days at least, in carb cleaner before cleaning out passages. I prefer lacquer thinner myself, shellac thinner equally as well. I use old guitar string pieces for the small orifices. The round wound type add a bit of reaming action to actually 'scrape' the walls to help remove any caked on residue. Simply soaking for a few hours won't allow the cleaner to work at 100% effectiveness. Also, never use drills or reamers to open up passages. It's your tractor, your $$$, so do what you feel is right. As I said, when you ask, you will get standard generic answers, especially when all info not given initially.
