I guess I'm starting this thread to get some help here and there for my 1254. I bought a carb kit from tubeframes and soaked my carb on some berryman chem-dip. Just finished soaking yesterday. Sprayed everything out extensively with brake cleaner and carb cleaner. My problem is that I took the carb apart in like September, hoping that I could till the garden before snow. well, that never happened. So, being as I took the darn thing apart so long ago I can't remember where a couple of things went.
First of all, did I get this right? Are the plug and inlet in the right holes?
Where do these go? The camera takes a bad dark picture, but one is a really small pin and the other is a tiny spring.
Also, if my regulator has rusted connections, will it work right? Or should I just buy a new one right away? What is the round thing with the plug wire coming out the top? Condenser? Coil? Should that be replaced also? I'm new to these older tractors as this is my first GT.
Yesterday I got a stack from TSC. I'll be making a bracket and pipe for that this week. Everything gets permanently mounted after the carb goes on. Does anybody know what those 2 small pieces are from???
I, too, need to get mine up and running. It's missing a fuel tank and need a rewire too. This photo was taken when I took delivery of it; I have since washed it, pumped up the tyres, grease the suspension etc. for some reason it's up side down

I would sand the regulator terminals. For the coil, I would just go on EBay and buy a Beru coil, just search for "Volkswagen Type1 bus coil" and you will see a blue coil for around 30 dollars. Should be a direct replacement for yours, as I have one on my 1000.
