  • Carb poll
  • How often do you disassemble and clean your carb?

    Itís been a few years, at least 3 since I last did mine.

  • I haven't touched the Marvel carb on my 9N since atleast the mid 70's. I do clean the glass sediment bowl whenever I see debris floating around.

  • Only if I find that starting/running issues are fuel related and the three filters are clean, gas tank vent is open, etc. A simple diagnostic that you can perform is to open the valve on the sediment bowl, get a pint Mason jar and remove the drain bolt from the fuel bowl on the carb. If it quickly (maybe a minute or so) fills the Mason jar you know you are getting good flow through it.

    If you want to do it "just because", we have some good info in our How-To's library here to be a guide for you.

  • If it is now working, don't "fix" it until it is broke!

  • I am pretty sure that is exactly what I told him, Jesse. That said, it is his tractor, so therefore his prerogative on how he maintains it, which is why I referred him to our library of helpful information (one tutorial of which was co-authored by you) to help him do it correctly.
