OK,I am trying to help a neighbor with a B john deere carburator.
He has a set of videos in regards to the rebuild process.
We thought we had it right but it filled up the crankcase with gas a while back.We found the float to be out of adjustment.Aint sure someone didnt help it be screwed up trying to fix it for him.
But anyhow,in the video the man has a little stand to bolt the carb to and he has a small fuel container about 3 feet above the carb that hold a small amount of gas.He removes the fuel drain from the deere carb and puts a hose barb fitting in there.He then puts a plastic clear hose to that and curves it straight up.When fuel is turned on the hose is supposed to fill to a point and stop,in this case 3/4 inch from bowl top if the needle and seat are working right.
Is there any reason a feller couldnt do this with a Holley NH or other carb for that matter?
There is a fuel drain on most of them.
Also,how would you know how high the fuel should come to in the hose in comparison to the carb body?
Thanks for any ideas as I ask for and got a picture of the drill out holes and such a while back and I want to do a couple carbs for my T's during the winter.
I aint never sent 1 off or anything.Allways just cleaned and worked on them myself and they work ok.But I want to really go over a couple right and see if I can improve the idle on both my T's.
Mack I think there is information like you want in Ted Aschman's Tinkering Tips. He had quite a few articles that were about carburators.
There is also some thing like you want in the service bulletins.
I think the info would transfer to the Model T. I do recall that it covers setting the float.
"and see if I can improve the idle on both my T's"
Mack, FWIW, I had idle problems on one of my Ts and it turned out to be a worn camshaft. A reground one from Ford-n-More (Spokane) cured it.
