carb question

Postby winton » Tue Jan 12, 2016 7:45 pm

cleaning my cub for paint I found I pin hole in my manifold.it really needs replace.it's a 51.i have a IH carb. Are the bolts from the manifold to carb threaded into carb or through bolt w/nut? Mine are through bolt but the nuts don't look like they are original. IT has also had a barb fitting for inlet.I guess they forced a mip fitting in it.

Is this the pin hole you mean. If so, it belongs there.

The bolts are through bolts passing through the carb. They are threaded into the manifold. The nuts on top of the carb are fine thread.

The inlet can be helicoiled with the correct threads.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

The end of the stud that is in the carb flange is 1/4-20. Those holes can be helicoiled/ezsert repaired if drilled or stripped out. The other end of the stud (manifold flange) is 1/4-28 and has a nut on it. The gas inlet thread should be 1/2-20 but was probably stripped with 1/4" npt thread.

When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

Forget what I said, I was thinking of something totally different. :oops: This unusual freeze in the area has me screwed up. :lol:
