Those old cast iron carbs are pretty robust. If all else fails soak it in muratic acid. it will be sparkling clean for @30 seconds then it will start to flash rust. I've saved many old carbs like that.


Yup, that's the fastest way to do it. If you want to go the incremental route, then start with a 3:1 solution of white vinegar and water. Bring it a boil in an old pot and put in the carb. Let it simmer for 20-30 minutes, then remove and rinse with water. It works almost as well as the old fashioned "hot dip" carburetor cleaner solvent we used to get in the 60s and 70s before the EPA banned it.
Gonna have to save that for future reference.

Moving right along on the ollie.  :bravo_2:

When your done I'll bring the super 55 up and you can go thru it. It just has a bad injector pump a burnt PTO clutch pack and 20 yrs of neglect to get right.

I have a super 66 diesel next in line you can park it next to. My son wants to do it next because it's "small enough for him to drive", he is 3  :D

I didnít look this close at the flywheel when I removed it from the engine. The pressure plate looks the same. Wifey dropped the flywheel off at the machine shop this morning and I just ordered a clutch kit with the pilot and hub bearings along with the pressure plate, surprisingly the clutch kit was only $224.
