Understand - don't want gas in the engine's crankcase oil.
I/we have redone the carburetor in our 1980 JD 111 3-4 times. Gave up.
Installed a shut off valve on the fuel line between the gravity fed fuel tank & carb.
Done with work - turn off fuel flow & let engine run at idle 'till the carb's outta gas
& the engine stops running. Then remember to turn start key to off.
Next time, remember to turn on the fuel flow when wanting to restart the engine.
Been working just fine this way for us for over 17 yrs. now.
