Carb Inlet Stripped

Postby Johnbo » Mon Feb 24, 2020 3:25 pm

Where the gas line connects to the carb it is stripped. Does anyone on this site still repairs these? It has been a while since I last posted, just retired in August 2019 wanting to start working on my cubs again. Thank you for your time.

If anyone here repairs them, I'm sure they'll chime in. It seems that a helicoil repair is popular. http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=104765&p=829531

There is a helicoil repair available, but it requires some special tooling that only a handful of forum members have. If interested, one of the carb gurus might let you ship them your carb body, and they could make the repair. See if someone chimes in with such an offer.

Alternate to helicoil. Purchase a 5/16 compression union and rethread one side with a 1/2x20 die nut. Seal this re-threaded side into your carb with JB WELD or thread sealer of choice. Reconnect the fuel line to the other side of the union with the other compression nut and ferule.

I use someone in Michigan who remanufactures the carb. Fixes all of the treads, replaces the hardware with ss and rebuilds the carb. The carb are more remanufactured than rebuilt and are like new. He is expensive at ~$200 for a beater carb less for one in better shape. I have sent many to him and have been very happy. all of my IH carb cubs start right up. PM me if you want his contact info.
