I like Rachael's repair videos. She makes them for all types of repairs and brands. When you stone throwers make your own How To videos I'll watch those too. You don't find many young people much less young ladies with an interest in this stuff so I give her a pass on anything that isn't 100% per the book. We all learn with time in the hobby.

You can throw all the stones you want at me, if someone makes an instrumental/instructional video it needs to be spot on. Especially for the newcomers into the hobby so they don’t mess their stuff up and it cost them money to replace a broken part they thought they were repairing correctly.

I agree with Shane. There is a big difference between "instructional" posts made here on the forum, and the videos that Steiner offers. With our "in house" posts, they are open for corrections, amendment, and offers of altenative options by fellow forum members. Only after they have been reviewed in this way, are they added to the HOW TO section. There is little or no opportunity to correct Steiners videos. I have certainly enjoyed many of Rachel's videos, but recognize that there are some errors, as well as unrecorded key procedures. They need to be open to corrections, and make editing changes where those errors are pointed out.

Perhaps someone will forward this thread to them?

I don't have a lot experience with the Cub carb but one thing I have noticed is the idle tube has little to do with how it runs.
Broken/missing/intact...runs the same.

You can get by with it broke or missing, as long as you have a really straight, flat top. I had one that was broke and ran great. The top was as flat as a two sided pancake though.

The calibrated orifice is in the threaded end which usually remains in the carb top after the idle tube is broken off. I think I remember George Willer making a similar statement years ago. I sent a "comment" to Rachel at their parts website, and also added a comment to the Youtube video. Haven't heard back yet.

I met Rachel at Red Power. I commented on one of her videos, where she wore a hooded sweatshirt, with the strings dangling in front. She used a pneumatic wrench, to remove a rear tire. My comment, Rachel, I'm glad you still have your head attached. One of the strings, tangled in the wrench, and you wouldn't have it attached, any more.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

She doesn't do videos for Steiner anymore - her parents have their own parts company and she does videos for them instead. Her videos she did do for Steiner's are probably still on their website, but her last few videos aren't, but are on her parents company's website. There is a link on the youtube video link on the first post of this thread. Here's the link. https://farmtractorrepair.com/

Agreed. I’ve found her very helpful.
I’ve also found that the best of the best are sometimes not 100%.
If I’ve got a problem that needs a solution I’ll reach out to those with knowledge and willing to help. I’ll listen, I’ll read up, take what I get, then ultimately decide what to do and if it doesn’t work out the blames on me.
As for any instructional being spot on, there is no such thing. Everyone’s unique and gets information from his/her own angle.
