Michigan Mike the Cub Carb Man

Postby jlmason81 » Mon Jan 28, 2013 11:25 pm

I know that many of you have either used or know of Mr. Mike in Milford, Michigan that does wonders to IH Carburetors. I have been using him for the last 3 years to restore all of my carbs to their "Original" Glory. As of last Sunday, I received my first Zenith that needed his attention. I emailed him to asked if he was up to the challenge, which he gladly accepted. So last Wednesday, I sent it off to him from Texas. He replied back Thursday afternoon and had explained that he received the Carb and done all the repairs (in 1 day!!!). Well today I received it back and mounted it on the tractor, looks good as new!!! One turn of the key and the tractor was running and idling properly. Yet another success.

Check out the work! You should see what he is set up to do on the IH Carbs!

It would be nice to have a location to post contact info for this and other members that offer services without spending a bunch of time searching for that info. How, 'bout it Moderators?

Ricky, this has been around for a while but nobody other than Tim seems to use it. viewforum.php?f=158
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I forgot about that forum, it is kinda new. But I guess this thread really belongs here, at least until we can figure out if those posts get pruned or not.

Guys,

I talked to Mike today and he asked that I post his email address as his contact. So here it is. Fixitmike1@aol.com

This is the first Zenith I have had rebuilt and I'm extremely pleased with the outcome. His true expertise is in the IH Cub Carburetors. He has all of the necessary tools and in stock parts for the rebuilds.
