So, when I pulled the cylinder head off of Bror, here is what I found….
Here’s what the carb looks like:
So, that’s kinda disappointing to see. The Walbro carbs for the JD 112/Tecumseh HH110 engine are kinda hard to find (read: impossible) so that would be a bit of a show stopper… However, while cruising MTF, I saw a post from a guy who runs CarbRescue.com. So, on a whim, I PM’ed him to see what he thought… Here’s his response:
“Bring it on son. That’s pretty nasty. If the body isn’t rotted out, particularly under the bowl, it’s a walk in the park. By the way, I don’t just clean. I do full restorations and make any part on it that I need to. On top of that, I guarantee my work and that it will run like a new carburetor when I’m done. You just make sure you save those pictures for some before and after posting on here. Hehe. Be glad to do it for you if you decide the motor is good. ”
Soooo… Once I’ve had a chance to really tear into the motor and figure out whether its worth proceeding, I think I will send him my carb….
