Does anyone in Middle TN know of a place to get a rebuilt carb for a tractor? Can they be ordered at say autozone or advance? I inherited my dads old 60s International and I would like to do some fixing up on it. It runs now, some times it runs great but other times it barely runs. when it acts up I have to pull up and down on the throttle and choke just ot keep it from dying. My truck run similar before I changed out the carb. I have looked online and new are at least 250 to 300. I don't want to pay that for carb a little more complex than a lawnmower but less than a car carb. I do think it leaks and has air leaks at times. I have seen the carb kits at tsc and I think they have one for less than 30 but I am not brave enough to try to rebuild one again. I tried rebuilding the one on my 352 in my 66 truck twice and finally gave up and got a rebuilt one.
I will check with NAPA for a carb. I have been to yesterdays tractor but I sometimes forget it. I was looking for something local so I could pay with cash and not a credit card. I have tried to get away from cards years ago, I hate the suckers the way they do you . I do have a debit card but I am leary about buying online with it as well. As far as the tractor goes I think if the carb was rebuilt it would solve a lot of my issues. It leaks a little but I can deal with that. But what I don't like is wondering if I can get it back to my barn when it starts acting up in the field. Has anyone rebuilt one and how easy are they to do compared to a 2 bbl 352 FE carb from the 60s?
Neighbor here is going through that with their tractor *****.
I'll let you know what happens with them.
Not much luck as far as I can tell. I wish I knew more, I would offer to help you with it.
