Nice ! I have a carb that is the previous version of the one you have, its quite interesting but i don't think i am going to put the time in to clean it up because of how old and brittle the seals all are.

yeah they are called a flow jet carb, pretty gigantic compared to OHV carbs & others I have.

Yep, that always sucks big time. I've had to cut 'em off before, it's a real pain. Anti-Seize goes on afterwards for sure, haha.

Ooh I hate when they stick to the axle. Now that I look at your hood though, almost looks like an international or a Massey Ferguson. Mine looks a little like a baby sears SS series

im gonna try a few more things, I saw online some guy using some kind of puller to take them off, I am not sure what it was for though.... Basically a bolt in the middle and a clamp that goes around the keyway bulge...

The rim has two holes 180 degrees apart right? See if you can make a rim puller. That’s what I’m gonna do on the spare MSTs I have

i’ve had good luck using heat and a puller with the two holes in the middle. The rim was stuck on so bad that the metal deformed around the holes but the rim was OK.

Ok I forgot I had a pulley puller set, and this thing was in it, and it worked good.

Oh and yes it had to pee, oil leaked into the intake & I had to pull the carb again and clean the oil out of it, stupid move....

got some tires mounted up for it, pretty happy, still need to finish wiring.  Also put one of my spare Lt1000 hoods on my old square body craftsman, the hood that was on it broke too many times....

That's just like the one I borrowed one time from the electric motor repair shop at Kodak Industrial Park. It worked great.

Haha thanks, I am very well aware.  I didn't have time to mount all the tires I needed, that one was a spare I have the other matching ones..

The atv rims are much harder to get the tires off of, compared to tractor rims.  They are very flat and wide.

Im confused about hooking my stator charging back up, it has two wires coming from it, one red and one green (coming off the block).  I thought there was supposed to be a diode or something between the red and battery.  There is a circuit breaker #19 right in front of where it connects back to the battery, otherwise there looks to be no diode or rectifier or anything like that?  Is this correct?

On my simplicity there wasn't a fancy recitfier or reguator either.  There was one wire for charging the battery and another wire for headlights. When I first got the tractor only the charging wire was hooked up because it didn't have headlights. I hooked up the other wire to the headlights through a relay that was controlled by a switch.

I thought it had to have a diode somewhere to convert the voltage or something....

I recall there being a small diode in the wiring harness coming from the motor but it was a long time ago and I don’t have the tractor anymore.

Yeah I have to look at all the wiring I ripped out again and see if there is one hidden somewhere.

None of the carbs I have messed with lately are close to the same, the OHV carb, Opposed carb, & flo draft carb. Figuring out why I have parts left over after the rebuild is the hardest part.

Yeah, that may not be a good thing unless you used a rebuild kit.

I opened up an oppy carb and it was full of white powdery flakes from having water in it for years, once i cleaned it a couple times it ran fine tho, i think it was a 4 bolt carb cause it didnt have adjustment screws like the older ones do.


I really like the looks of this little tractor .
