Is that the standard diameter of a grounding rod? Like for an electric fence? I ask because the remnants of one (about 1' long, but bent) at our farm is always threatening to snag my tractor tire as I pass a specific fence post while mowing our pasture.

It would be the incentive I need to get out there and either pull it up or cut it off!!! I'd be happy to mail it to you! :lol:

If what you have is a normal grounding rod they are copper and can be either 1/2" or 5'8" diameter and should be about 8 feet in the ground.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Ahhh...yes, copper, not brass. Guess I'll just continue to dodge the darn thing. :?
I'm sure it's deep down in there...that's why it's still there!!

Dig around it, cut it off with a reciprocating saw. Borrow one, if you have to.

If one of your five Cubs has a FH, pull the rod up and take it to a scrapyard, you might be pleasantly suprised.

I think most ground rods are copper plated steel. Solid copper would be hard to drive without bending it.

:lol: That's one of the great things about this form. The imagination of ideas and suggestions are unlimited! Things I would never have thought about are presented and sometimes are a better idea. BTW, I think that Bob has come up with another approach to use a 1/4 inch rod and adapt it to the carb. I'll post it on the Other Tractors forum when the details get worked out. Thanks for all the suggestions. Stan
