Jack, I'm probably the person responsible for the 'flow thru carb' number of one pint in two minutes. It is a safe round compromise number. Many years experience have me running around 8 hours on 10 gallons (usually mowing w/ bush hog) and that & a calculator yields 2.67 OZ/minute or a pint in 6 minutes. HOWEVER, the Nebraska tractor test on an N-tractor shows 2.7 gallons per hour, which is 5.76 OZ/minute or a pint in 2.77 minutes. I personally have never seen such high consumption (10 gal in 3.7 hours as in Nebraska), but they are the testers and were measuring at highest work load the tractor could pull, so I have, for over a decade, suggested that a "pint in 2 minutes,or less" is a good test, based on experience operating, Nebraska test, and the fact that my two 8Ns will easily meet the pint in 2 minutes or less with a clean fuel system. So, ...if flow meets that pint in 2 minutes, you will be safely home! :)
