Re: carb problem

Lavoy is correct, originally the venturi fits tightly. I believe over time the venturi relaxes and loses the tight fit, that is why I used the sealer and it cured my problem. I believe the venturi is aluminum or pot metal while the carburetor body is cast iron.

Re: carb problem

I believe I used permatex aviation gasket sealer. I used it in the past for Volkswagen engine cases and it worked great, I still have the same can from over 40 years ago! I wanted to use something impervious to gasoline but removable in case I needed to take it apart again. When you take the carbure...

Re: carb problem

I had the same problem with a marvel-sheibler carburetor on a different make of crawler. Since you had the carburetor apart, is the venturi removable? The problem I had is sealer is needed where the venturi seats. The area around the venturi vents to the atmosphere, so if it is not properly sealed, ...

Re: Case Backhoe Question

I can second Dale at Tractor stuff. Very good to deal with, reasonable prices, new and used parts and very knowledgeable. Back to your question, to release the latch, could you use a come-along to release the tension? or back the dipper against a tree, then trip the release? I did a similar thing on...

Hood

The 440 IC and the 440 ICD hood dimensions are the same, the cutouts for the intake and exhaust are in different locations. The door for the radiator filler is in a different location also as I recall.

His work.

Reminds me of the old saying, "Give a man a fish, feed him for a day, teach him how to fish, feed him for a lifetime." Jesus worked with the fishermen and made them fishers of men. I am glad you shared the ministry and I believe it is a great thing to do at the right time. May the Lord richly bless.

Carburetor

Also check the venturi in the carburetor for a good seal, it can suck air in, causing a lean condition. To test, try closing the choke when it backfires.

Carburetor

I had similar carburetor problem because I had not sealed around the venturi properly when I rebuilt the carburetor. It sucked air through the vent. Sealed the venturi with non hardening Permatex which solved the problem.

dowels vs bolts.

According to the 1010 parts manual, PC 727, crawlers before serial number 15258 had dowels, after used bolts on the flanged axle.
