Re: Ohio Weather

Up here in the frozen north of MN I had the coldest I've had so far, -41. I'm ready for spring! :D

Re: 450C Track Adjustment

Has to be a bad zerk fitting. They have a check ball in them to prevent what you are experiencing. Try another fitting.

Re: carb problem

You guessed wrong. I had put a new load jet in it. It was part of the carb kit that I bought from Lavoy. EVERY hole and orifice was thoroughly cleaned multiple times - there was not a speck of dirt in it. I had even ran the tip cleaner from my set of torches into every opening looking for anything t...

Re: carb problem

Believe me, I tried this same thing several times with my carb but could not find/fix the problem with it. Whatever was wrong with it will remain a mystery.

Re: carb problem

Thanks for the link but I had already printed this thinking it would help me with my problem but replacing the carb was the only solution,

Re: carb problem

UPDATE - replaced the carb with a rebuilt and my dozer runs like a charm! Tried it out by pushing out a pine stump from a tree that had blown over from a storm this summer and it didn't hesitate one bit. I had even sprayed some paint on the machine to make it look pretty. :)

Re: carb problem

Update - rebuilt the carb installing all new parts from a carb kit but still have the same problem. If I ever figure this thing out I'll let everyone know. Leaning towards replacing the carb if I can find one. Wish me luck!

Re: carb problem

Lavoy, I sent you another P.M. I would like to purchase a kit for this carb to see if that will fix it.

Venturi can only go in one way - one end is larger than the other.

Re: carb problem

When my carb is all together the venture will not move, so I assume that it is sealing. I sent you a P.M.

Re: carb problem

yellowcrawler, thanks for the post. The link you gave leads to the carb manual that I downloaded and printed when I started working on this problem. At this point I'm willing to try anything so later today I'm going to try sealing the venture and see if that helps. To recap, the compression is good ...

Re: carb problem

I can back out the load needle until it is ready to fall out and still have to run it with choke under load.

Re: carb problem

Thanks for the input again, Lavoy. I've already done what you just suggested - all passages will flow brake clean through them and the holes in the nozzle are open and clear. Just tried a different coil but there was no change. Have you heard about the venture having to be sealed with some kind of s...
