Green thumb farms? Hey you said you have same carb I ordered. Is your choke cable or rod? Mine has a cable new carb didn’t come with the part that cable runs through and has a screw that tightens against cable. Where do you find that part or what’s it’s proper name? Not sure why they ship them out without it kinda crazy don’t they know we need that part bahahaha

Hi,
If the part you're talking about comes off the original carburetor, you can put it on the new carb.

All the parts of the carb are shown, and the names are shown in the links I posted at your other post, My first international cub.

Hi,
You may need to keep the whole part that attaches to the carb with the 2 screws, and the arm that is held on the shaft with the nut. Use penetrating oil on the screws and nut if they are tight, don't twist them off.
You can sand them and paint them, if you are restoring the tractor.

The cable came from the factory attached to the choke lever by means of two opposite 90 degree bends that slipped through the small hole in the lever. A PO, at some point in time, replaced that setup with a cable stop. Probably because they broke the end of the cable off. Those stops are available at most auto parts stores. Even the big box ones.

Oh ok so it was originally just a z-bend cable. That’s the problem with older tractors that had 5 owners they all tinkered with it over time and didn’t put stuff back how it was suppose to be. Hate that. Ok so I’ll either buy a z bend tool or go find another cable stop. Or just switch whole thing over

My tractor has the choke cable. Off the top of my head I can't recall if that came on the new carb or if I took it off the old one. We are full swing in the field picking corn, so when we have a rain day I'll go to the parts shed and get the old carb out for a look

I just re-read the responses...my carb does have the Z-bend cable, so that piece is a replacement on your old carb. You can always transfer the choke arm to the new carb, just be sure to clock it so cable out is choked and in is choke opened

Fuel line came in today. Both ends the brass fitting just slides off. Is it missing something? or do I need to do anything to it?

The nuts should have compression ferrules attached to them. When you tighten the nut the ferrule shears off and compresses on the fuel line. Be sure you have the fuel line pushed into the carb or sediment bowl completely before tightening. The metal in the carb and sediment bowl is soft so be careful not to strip them out. I prefer to use a brass fitting of the correct size to compress the ferrule and then put the line on the tractor with the fittings already compressed on the line

Hi,
You probably don't want the end of the tube touching the metal in the carburetor or gas strainer, but the tube has to be through fitting some.
Like he said above, the little ring breaks off the fitting the 1st time it is tightened, and the ring shrinks so it is tight on the tube. :)

What fitting do I need that screws into sediment bowl and fuel line screws to it?

The fuel line should screw directly into the sediment bowl.
