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 Willy.
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.
