The idle tube threads are 4-48 not 4-40. The idle tube threads into the carb top, not the bottom. I have no idea why she would think the bottom needed to be drilled and tapped and then sealed with JB. The concave plug and felt rarely need to be replaced, and the screen she shows goes in the gas inlet, not there. It's also staked in place, not just tapped in. Some good basic info in the video, but enough mistakes to cause someone to potentially ruin their carb. Especially with the incorrect idle tube info.

I saw Rob's and tst's posts then clicked the link. As soon as I saw the source, I was thinking "consider the source" or "what would you expect". Then I watched it. By the time I got to the end, I didn't even remember the errors in the first part. This video clearly does more damage than most of her videos.

Did anybody notice how she separated the top from the bottom at about 2:10 in the video. I never did like any of her how to videos.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

:Dito:

What a horrible example of carb work! She's obviously been instructed by someone how they do it and not by the Service Manual (or by the wealth of information on FarmallCub.com). Some of her other videos are benign, but this one actually is counterproductive to anyone trying to follow her example.

Following the resources in the How To Forum here will put you in much better shape than doing what she suggests.

:shock: I am no expert on rebuilding carbs, and I can muddle thru and kind of out of the norm for some I do like looking at service manuals, but this video :shock: :?:

I "think" she just whacked the carb with a screwdriver handle to separate the halves. The idle tube may have broken when she did that. You want to pull the two halves straight apart. I did send a comment to her on their parts website. If she replies, I'll post what she says.

You could be right about that. But I still think someone off-camera had some questionable repair practices in the past. Whoever heard of drilling through the bottom half of the carb to install an idle tube?!! Absolutely no evidence of that prior to her getting out the drill. I'd thought if she broke it off on-camera, a simple investigation would have shown where it was to be threaded into. :roll:

Unfortunately, this poor video brings all her other vids into question...

I think that ship had already sailed. I'm under the impression that she learned her repair techniques from her father, who had (has?) a tractor repair shop.

Probably broke the idle tube before shooting the video. She normally takes things apart and then puts them back together loosely before shooting a video

I believe she used the Geech technique to separate the carb halves.
