    No problem, that's what this site is for. Just glad to see some younger folks getting into the older carburetors.

    You're such a big help. Another ? On this carb, is it possible to get the metering plate switched. Reason I'm asking is the carb presently on the truck has mix screw on the side of the secondary block but none for the primary. I dont know if this carb has been messed with or not....
    I'm becoming more interested in it because many do not know anything about them but still some people are still relying on carbs for their equipment.

    On top of the metering blocks there are numbers, pri block 9421as, sec block 8105a & yes it is possible, but this model did have idle mixture screws in the sec. metering blocks.

    By the way, I rebuilt carbs from combines to fork trucks, once you learn the basics they all are pretty much the same except the updrafts, my age is showing again.

    OK, I'm supposed go to the farm tomorrow, so I'll let you know later on in the evening what I find on the metering block numbers. But I know for a fact that no mixture screws are on the front/primary bowl.

    My son is a master mechanic. Went to tech school for 2 years, owns his own shop but wasn't educated in carburetors. Thats a shame. That's why I help on this site when I can.

    OK, so went down to the farm/mill the numbers are primary metering block 9421 secondary metering block 8105 so they are correct.

    NO mix screws on the primary block? Why?
    I checked the grain truck, the mobile mill and the feed truck. All with 366's gas and no mix screws in the primaries.

    I did fool with it a little and I need to adjust the accelerator pump for more squirt sooner.

    I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.

    The governor controls the pri. idle circuit. At WOT .015 between pump lever & adjustment accelerator arm. Any movement of the throttle should produce a squirt.
