Bob, thanks for the offer but I have it torn down and cleaned up this evening . The idle tube unthreaded very easy with a pair of players, it was plugged. I have the gaskets ordered from my local Napa.

If your gas tank is not in the best of shape (rust/dirt) you might want to consider an inline fuel filter between the gas fuel bowl and the carburetor inlet. Just a thought.
Also if you don’t use the tractor for long stretches like over winter I always turn off the fuel and then drain the carburetor dry for extended down times. Let’s gunk build up also flushes out the carburetor bowl once a year.

Wow what a difference. Cleaned carb, new gaskets. It started right up, didn’t need to choke it. It runs and idles Better than it ever did. Looks like I need to do the ih carb on the 49 too. It idles rough and needs choke to run
