That's stupid. This is going to be a 90% stock tractor and the dang problem isn't even the carburetor.

Mikuni is a Japanese company that makes performance Motorcycle carbs.

buy the way, you know you have an idel and a run jet to adjust, if main jet is to far off it will be fine with no load, then stall out as soon as it needs to bring the throttle up.

did a few things, put it back together and clear coated it, wired up a kill switch, dual wired it because I may add an hour meter or an under-the-hood kill switch for the heck of it, and then I ordered a new carb, should be here Thursday.  After that, this thing is ready to go!

1975 MTD 990 Farm King - Page 3 20190340

Zip tied everything up and out of the way because since the coil is on backwards, the kill wires could easily get tangled in the flywheel.  And 'cuz why not?

1975 MTD 990 Farm King - Page 3 20190339

After the clear coat, I think it looks fantastic but that's just me.

1975 MTD 990 Farm King - Page 3 20190412

Then I found out that this sleeve hitch that I bought on Craigslist and put on the John Deere is actually a 3 point drawbar with some stuff welded to it, LOL.  So I need to cut that stuff off, and then I have a moldboard that's not actually a moldboard but it works lol, and a ripper.  I also can easily get a disk for it, and a rear blade for not a lot of money.  this is nice because I don't know the load cap of this hitch, and I don't want to blow $600 on a 3 point attachment in the first place (which is what they cost), then find out its too heavy or something.

1975 MTD 990 Farm King - Page 3 20190411

Waiting on the carb, that is the 1 thing I am waiting on, after that it should be ready to go plow a field.  Since it from the factory takes a car battery that's like $100, I'm going to stick with the pull start it has on the s/g pulley for now.

Oh sweet, thanks for letting me know, that's 100% what it is.  It even had some white on it when I got it.  I guess the rest of this was completely home fabbed up, which I thought it looked professional enough to be factory. I'll take some pics later.

Well it has legit car battery cables in it. And my lawn tractor battery couldn't turn the s/g over, I had to jump it off my Explorer.

Nice that thing is cool, looks almost like the size of a Case tractor.

According to Tractor Data, this tractor has a 2" longer wheel base, 2 more horsepower, over 100 more pounds not counting wheel weights, 2" wider cutting width, and 3" smaller rear tires than a Case 444, which is what Allis has. So except for the tires, it's slightly bigger in just about every way.

Mine probably has a compression release in it, but it doesn't act like it. The s/g probably needs to be cleaned a bit too.

VICTORY IS MINE!!!

I just got the new carb in, threw it on, fired right up without choke, and it drove just fine. Reverse, forward, hi, lo, hydraulics, everything works. I have a vid but I have to upload it later.

I haven't tuned it yet. It runs fine so I haven't had to mess with it.

Thanks, yeah it has plenty of compression. Thanks!

Carb was $33 with free 2-day shipping. I'm a little annoyed because the needle doesn't seat all the way, and if you know how an updraft works you'll understand this, when the engine is not running the bowl overflows and the gas pours into the bottom part of the carb, and then leaks out through the hole where the pin for the air filter threads in. It's not bad enough that it leaks when the engine is running, so for now I've just been shutting the fuel line off when I turn the engine off. I'm a little annoyed, probably going to leave a bad review, but I'm going to see if it just needs to break in a bit, and if not I'll have to take it apart and clean out the needle.

@Double W Cross Ranch I had the same problem with an ebay carb I bought for my K301 in my C-125. It was a really easy fix. It turned out there were some small metal shavings on the needle or seat that got in there after I threaded the fuel line adapter into the carb.
