M2 High Speed Tractor carb info

Post by pvtcook » Mon Jul 31, 2017 3:14 pm

I've got a friend that's restoring a M2. He's needing a Tillotson YX3A carb or a carb kit. Does anybody know off a source for these? Any help will be appreciated.

Have you tried your local parts store like NAPA,may be the same as many farm tractors,You have to get them to look in the farm and industrial catalogs.

Yeah Jeff I think he has. He found out that a Chevrolet distributor cap and button fit it. But no luck on the carb.

That carb is a very hard one to find. I looked for about 3 years finally found one on eBay. I will keep a lookout for you one.

I have not bought a carb. kit for these old carbs, Make your own carb. kit, Sharp knife and a leather hole punch will make your gasket, clean up the check valves make sure they work,needle and seat has to seat, float has to float.

I found a place in Missouri that makes a kit for the carb. But they want $650 for it. Includes everything but the float. The guy that has the M2 is a retired veteran and he can't afford that. So im not sure what he is going to do.

You or him are not going to learn any thing by opening your wallet,These carburetors are very easy to work on.
