Ferguson TO30 running terrible after Carb Rebuild =(

Fred Hello there, I have a 50's Feguson TO-30 with the 4 cyl gas engine, it has a marvel schebler carb on it. The engine began to run very bad, no power at all, engine bogged down, would barely run. So I replaced points, cap, rotor, spark plugs and rebuilt the carb (unfortantly the carb rebuild kit was a joke and barely contained any parts except a new needle and seat). Now the engine is worse off then before, except now Its very hard to get the engine to run, its worse now then ever, the carb seems to be flooding out the air intake, the float is ajdusted to specs, I am at a loss as to what to do now.

Any help or advice would be greatly apperciated.

Thank you,


Dave Anderson Had same problem with a T0-35. Went through the electrical and rebuilt carb. It happened to be the gas tank. It was like last resort. It had so much rust in it the little particales of rust stopped up the screen filter in the stem above the glass bowl. Empty tank remove the stem. It's threaded into a fitting in the bottom of the tank. I had to have the tank cleaned and coated inside to prevent rusting again. Bought a new screen filter runs like a dream now. Hope this works for you OK.
marc m cannot find info for carb rebuild on 49 T030 this is the info I've been given is there somewhere a walk through for a rebuild...
Hal Hadaller There are several classes of rebuild kits for the Marvel carburetor. Get the $30+ kit and it will have about all the replaceable parts in it. You get what you pay for. Lots of kits available for the TSX458 (TO-30 carburetor).
Lee Kisselburg To Dave Anderson:
The new screen filter that you replaced... Where was you able to find one of these at? I am having the same issue with our Massey TO35... THANKS! Lee

Re: Ferguson TO30 running terrible after Carb Rebuild =(

I took the 'screen' to a guy who had an ultrasonic bath machine. It uses ultrasound and solvent that is heated to about 140 degrees. It got my 'screen' 2/3 cleaned! AND come-to-find-out, it is not actually a 'screen'... It consists of layers and layers of very thin spacers, alternated to give a "screening" effect. So I cleaned the rest and reassembled. WORKS LIKE NEW!
