Oliver Suiper 55 Carburetor
|Gentleman Farmer||Despite the kind ministrations of a truly good neighbor, the Carter UT carb on my 1955 Oliver Super 55 is leaking fuel out the air intake. I know the Carter UT and the Marvel-Schebler TSX were OEM on the early Super 55s,and a Zenith was fitted as OEM on the late (1958) Super 55. I am ready to go with a remanufactured unit to reset the carburetion, and have found a source for a what appears to be a good, warranteed M-S TSX unit. My quandry is this: Should I change to the M-S from the Carter UT (are they about equal in performance), or should I try to find a reman Carter UT, or attempt to retrofit the later Zenith. It has been frustrating, since I was able to get the tractor running well for a little while, but I think bsic carburetion problems has caused this latest setback.
Any advice from more knowlable Oliver owners is greatly appreciated.
|Butch||If the leak is not caused by a crack I would think a new needle valve and seat should fix that problem.
|Gentleman Farmer||Thanks, Butch. I'll check that out.
|Butch||When you have the carburetor apart check to make sure there isn't any gas inside the float causing it to sink and keeping the needle valve open.
