I have been waiting impatiently for a carb kit from Robert's Carburetor, he specializes in old JD stuff. Got it today and installed all the gaskets and widjits, and set the float level, and now there is no more stumbling and blowing black smoke. It idles like a watch now and runs up the rpm smoothly.
I can't think of any earthshaking ah-ha moment of a plugged passage or anything, but I did note that I think the float needle was too small in diameter. The new needle and seat fits together much more tightly.

Robert's also sells a video, which for me was a waste of money but I thought there might be something to learn off it. If you had never dealt with these carbs it would be a great thing to have.
The video did show me that I am missing a part out of the carb. It is a sort of brass frost plug to prevent the gas sloshing up into the bowl vent and flooding the engine when traveling over rough ground.

This tractor is officially done. It is going in a parade on June 23.

Besides the parade, you could take it to Irricana in August.... Lots of old tractors there of all colours. Even lots of antique trucks and a few horses.

Good to hear it is finished. Now remember to start and use it regularly. I think that is my problem, my equipment suffers from not non use more than overuse. Plus, most needs repairs now.

You should bring it to Darwell in August and hook it to a sled.

I had to quit wearing a watch because of that.

Bounty, you would beat my ass with that rig of yours. I think this machine is retired. When I got it it came with several bags of used parts. A box of used bits and pieces of carb, and magneto, and a complete engine gasket set removed from an engine. I have no idea if these came out of this machine, but pulling a trailer is as far as I want to go with it.

Excellent job,
I have used Roberts also, they seem to be very helpful. I rebuilt 2 carbs , one 39 H and one 40 H Had lots of problems with the one on the 40, called Roberts and they told me over the phone where to look, and I fixed it right off.
What Year is your BO? Do you know if it had all steel wheels when built?

great looking tractor,
Rich

The BO series have a different set of serials and were built for 6 years if I remember.
This is a 1945 year and that was significant because the war years, I am told the model B had angle iron for the engine forward part, due to metal conservation.
This was right at the end of it and has castings forward of the engine. As this was an orchard machine, and all the stacks are off and shielded for limbs sliding over the hood, I can't see steel wheels that might rip the bark off a tree faster than rubber.

I'm guessing here. But this machine is slightly different. By this time the B had a grill and rounded off tank and was called a "styled model"
This critter has an unstyled hood and rad so I think they were using up old stock to create the BO when they went styled on the B.
