float adjustment?

Postby Dusty B » Sun Jul 24, 2022 8:51 pm

1945 H Starts and runs fine IF choke is pulled 1/3 - 1/2 out! Am I correct in my thinking that the float setting is too low? Carb has been rebuilt twice by "experienced" people (one the IH shop). Other than that runs and pulls well for sitting for 15 years outside!!

It may also be a restriction in the fuel supply.

I doubt that your float level has changed, on it’s own. It’s more likely a blocked passage within the carb. or fuel supply issue, as Don mentioned.
