Thumbs up Re: Want to get grandpa's old Massey runnin again.

A White vinegar solution works great at removing rust without being to aggressive like Muratic acid would be. There quite a few articles on the Web concerning the many uses of Vinegar. Check em' out. White vinegar is relatively cheap to buy $2.50- $3.00 a gallon at Wally World or your local grocery store. I know it cleans up coffee pots realy good. Gets the lime build up and coffee stains gone. Good for cleaning the lime out of the wife's steam iron.


HOPE THIS HELPS

I used muratic acid on a motorcycle tank once that worked well. Would it be ok to used for this once I have it completely disassembled?
It says it's a model TR on the side, where is a reasonable place to get a rebuild kit for it?
Did a quick search, is it a TRX-36 Marvel Schebler Carburetor? May need to clean around the "TR" and see if anything else is stamped or cast into the carb housing.

May want to call Steiner's tractor parts and see if they have a Carb. kit.

Here's an instruction manual on Marvel-Scheblar, it's not on the TRX model but should give you a good idea on how to proceed.

Found another link for the TRX-37 & 38 model carbs:

Welcome! Keeps me sane until I can get back home and gives me something to do looking up tractor info. Plus I learn alot while doing it! Thank your son for me for his service! I'm just here supporting our route clearance troops by servicing their equipment.

Almost forgot!

Carb Cleaning MTF search results:

http://www.mytractorforum.com/gtsear...%3Fp%3D2118764

I like this one, may try it next time I need to and see how it does on a junk carb first!

KHodges
AKA Moses Lawnagan

Something we radio control airplane guys use to clean our glow engines, is an old Crock-Pot that has the ceramic removable tub. Fill it with antifreeze that is compatible with aluminum, disassemble the carb and put it in the crockpot on low overnight.
You can drop an entire glow engine into this solution, and it will come out looking brand new. The ethylene glycol dissolves the varnish deposits that the burnt methanol, nitromethane and castor oil fuel leaves on the engine, and doesn't harm the metal at all. Most glow engines are aluminum castings with either brass plain bearings or steel ball bearings, it doesn't hurt any of the metals.

Have fun with your project!

Regaurdless of what you do over there you in a place where alot of us wouldn't want to be. Everyone's job there is important.
I think it's cool with technology that I'm talking tractors with someone on the other side of the planet!

If you know a good sheet metal shop, it might be easier to have new side shields made.

My boss has sent two of his to this shop in NY and they completely redo it, paint it gray and get it set where it needs to be. Tractors run great right out of the shipping box. I can try to find the name if you want. Here is a place that I read about in the IH Red Power magazine that looks pretty legit http://www.dennyscarbshop.com/ Let me know how you make out.

I cleaned the carb a little so I could determine what model I have. it's a trx-22. Steiner tractor carries the economy kit for these so that will help with getting her working again.

Talking Re: Want to get grandpa's old Massey runnin again.

The picture is a 101R, the 101 super came latter when they increased the engine size. There used to be a company that made replacement side panals for a bunch of different tractors like the massey 101's, oliver fleet line models.

My 101R has a zenith carb on it.
soak it in paint thinner then rince in hot soapy water then plain hotwater and blow the jets and channels dry.

If I soak it in paint thinner should I remove the needle? There are a few brass "plugs" that thread into the body, should I remove those also and will there be any tiny parts falling out if I do?
As far as it being a 101R, I looked at the serial# site that someone else linked up in this thread. From what I could tell it's a super but I'm just going off what I read. I just need her working since I just got a call from a friend that has a 6ft PTO driven field mower I can get for free to mow the pasture down.
