I know that there are jet differences between the Numbered Series IH 3/4" Updraft carb and the regular IH carbs. Are there any issues with say using a 154 carb on an early -- '47, '48 or '49 Cub?
Well I learned something today. I always thought they were the same basic carb. Eitherway, I would think a newer 154 carb would work on a older cub. The choke lever may need to be flipped to the other side.
you will need to change the choke shaft

There are a bunch of different Zenith carbs. I have one that came on my Lo Boy and like it a lot. They do seem to be a little more finicky when the Cub is cold, but I still prefer it.
They were also standard on the long stripe Cubs, with a slightly different manifold (larger intake hole) and a choke cable vs a rod/lever.
Possibly looking at the parts manual will answer some questions??

I am looking for a carb for a friend up here whose carb somehow mysteriously disappeared during the rebuild process.
That won't be a big deal as I already have the parts. Unfortunately I didn't get an answer from Roscoe early enough so I missed a good one. Thankee - you know who.
I have a 154 Cub Low-boy with a Zenith carburetor. Pulled the 154 into the shop today to work on. Actually haven't done anything with or on the 154 since I purchased it this spring as a winter project.
Starts a bit hard but runs ok once warmed up. Needs a tune up.
Parts book, TC 131, shows a Zenith carburetor for the 184 and 185 Low-Boy tractors. Same parts book shows a 3/4" updraft IH carburetor for the 154 Lo-boy tractors.
I have an excuse. CRS.
