I finally got my 1956 L running, after finding out that I put the big carburetor gasket on backwards! :ROF idiot! flooding it out. I recently did a carburetor rebuild on the old Zenith cast iron and got it working good, with PERFECT float height and some new jets and gaskets. It can still flood somewhat if you leave the gas on from the tank because the pressure from gravity forces it into your choke, then the air cleaner tube, then you gotta take it all apart.....not cool:Disgus: . Me and my dad have been busy workin' on it, my dad put new points and condenser in the old wico and timed it for me, and I did a carburetor rebuild and added cooling shrouds and a new exhaust system. Also I took an old beat up hood from my other L for the summer. I'll post a video of it running tommorow on Memorial Day and some plowing.....should be fun! :thThumbsU. Oh yeah and I'm workin on the other complete model L, trying to get it running too!
