many years oftroublefree service however as in the case ofall mechanical devices they do in time requireproper service and repairs An their construction and how they operate aswell as an understanding of their function withrespect to the engine will not only avoid manyfalse leads on the part of the service man in diagnosing socalled carbureter complaints but willcreate customer satisfaction and a for the progressive service shopTo understand a carbureter it is necessary torealize that there is only one thing that a carbureter is designed to do and that is to mix fuel andair in the proper proportion so that the mixturewill burn efficiently in an engine It is the function of the engine to convert this mixture intopowerThere are three major factors in an enginewhich control the change of fuel and air intopower 1Compression 2Ignition has been listed last because it isabsolutely necessary for the engine to have and good ignition before it can havegood the average person thinks of carburetion they immediately think of the carbureteras a unit Carburetion is the combined functionof the carbureter manifold valves piston andrings combustion chamber and cam shaftIt can be readily seen that carburetion is afar deeper subject than consideration of the carbureter alone and expecting the carbureter tocure faulty ignition compression valves etc willonly result in wasted time and effort on the partof the service man and added expense to thecustomerIt must be remembered that the function ofthe carbureter does not extend beyond delivering the proper mixture of fuel and air to themanifold and the other factors which effectpower and economy cannot be changed or corrected by the carbureter Inability to understandall the factors that effect engine operation is thereason many service mechanics change from factory standards and attempt to improve on theengine setup by their own methods or standards All that any service mechanic should evertry to do is to make the particular engine he isworking on as good as the manufacturer intended it to be but he can make it a lot worseFar too many engines are running below theirstandard of performance in service todayFor the carbureter to accomplish its functionit must be able to vary the mixture strength dependent upon the engine demands It mustsupply a mixture strength that will allow the engine to give maximum horsepower whenever thethrottle is fully opened while at part it must lean out the mixture so thatmaximum economy can be obtained In additionit must have flexibility throughout the entirerange of operating speeds from idle and partthrottle to full power wide open throttle position The carbureter must also have an accelerating well with enough fuel capacity to starthandling sudden maximum loads In other wordsthe carbureter not only varies the volume of fueland air that enters the engine but also varies theamount of fuel that goes in with a given amountof air in order to produce the proper for any condition under which theengine is operating at any timeIn order to understand the function and operation of the MarvelSchebler Tractor and Industrial Carbureters it is well to consider the systemsthat make up each carbureter These systemsare The Float System The Idle System ThePower Fuel Feed System The Back System and The Choke SystemA thorough knowledge of each system willhelp the service mechanic to quickly locate andcorrect legitimate carbureter complaints as wellas to inspect repair and put back to standardany carbureter that requires an overhaulR 1258254S5GROUP II

Back Suction Economizer System assures the proper metering of fuel to the the service life of the carburetor asthere are no moving parts to wear out or adjustments to get out of order It is essential however that the system remain free of dirt andforeign matter because any foreign substancein the system will restrict the flow of air improper pressures in the fuel bowlchamber and resulting improper fuel deliveryto the engineFig S16The amount of fuel supplied to an engine iscontrolled by the size of the power jet the position of the power adjusting needle and thedifference in air pressure between the fuel bowlchamber and the venturi However in manyengines the mixture must be leaned out additionally during part throttle operation to obtainmaximum economy To provide this leanermixture

theengine than can be burned A large percentageof the unburned gasoline is lost through the exhaust system The remainder of the raw gasolineis forced between the pistons and cylinder wallswashing away the protective oil film and increasing engine wear and enters the crankcase whereit dilutes the engine oilAny adjustments that are necessary on thecarburetor should never be attempted until theengine has obtained its normal operating temperature and the choke valve 25placed in the wide open positionand the warmup period Under these cold conditions it is necessary to supply an additionalrich mixture of fuel and air as only the lightends or more volatile portions of the fuel willvaporize with the manifold and air temperatures at these cold conditions Consequently itis necessary that a large quantity of fuel beavailable so that there will be enough lightends to combine with the air to form a combustible mixture for starting the engineThe function of the choke valve 25restrict the amount of air that can enter thecarburetor and to increase the suction on the nozzle14so that additional fuel will be drawn intothe manifold As soon as the engine fires andruns the rich mixture must

Carbureters is the mostpositive and satisfactory of idle systems becauseit is working under very high suction and themixture flows through the small passages at veryhigh velocities It is necessary to bear in mindhowever that there are times when these smallholes may become plugged with particles of dirtor lint but very seldom If idle trouble is experienced first check the manifold to cylinder headgasket and the carburetor to manifold gasketfor air leaks At slow idle an engine requiresonly approximately 20 to 25 lbs of air per hourand a slight leak will result in a very erratic orrough idling engineOther causes for a rough idling engine are uneven compression caused by sticky or leakingvalves leaking valve seats tappets with improper clearances leakage past pistons andrings cylinder head gasket leaking weakspark or spark plug points not spaced correctly ignition cable covering cracked and thus grounding spark and cable not assembled properly inthe distributor cap which causes corrosion andweak sparkThe spark timing of the engine is most important and should also be checked very carefully and set exactly on the mark as called forin factory standard specifications In fact allof the above items must be checked very carefully to factory standards and not just given acasual inspection with the common looks OK You can KNOW definitely that the tractor is up to the standards setby the AND are received from the field thatthe engine will not pull or develop its or that it develops good power butuses far too much fuel Too often a service manwill at once change the carburetor to correctthese complaints but by so doing he may not besuccessful in overcoming the difficultyIt must be clearly understood by all servicemen that when a new engine is designed anddeveloped the management first decides whathorsepower they want this engine to produce ata definite rated speed The engineering department develops the new engine to pull the required horsepower In the design there are certain fixed dimensions that never change Forinstance the bore and stroke the ratio diameter of valves lift ofvalves diameter of intake passage Thecarburetor engineer works out the diameter of throttlebore venturi size and provides for means ofadjusting and regulating the power fuel mixtureratio as well as the idle Now in service consider that the compression ignition and timinghave been checked and found to be 100 inthis engine If the air intake temperature andthe water temperature is held constant then theonly variable we have that affects is the fuel mixture ratioIf compression ignition and timing whichare variable are first properly checked by aservice man and set to factory little difficulty will be experienced in adjusting the carburetor to give the and economyA great

service man can do to thecarburetor is to disassemble it BE SURE that thepassages are open and free from dirt that thereis no wear on the throttle shaft and bushingsthat float valve and seat are OK that the floatheight is correct and that a good airtight sealexists around the bowl gasket If such does not correct the complaints a complete check of the engine must again be madeTo check the float

throttle operation while still permitting the richer mixture ratios that are neededfor full load operationThe economizer system performs its functionby establishing a back suction on the fuel inthe fuel bowl during most of the part throttlerange of operation This back suction is createdby manifold vacuum through the channels connecting the throttle bore with the fuel bowl Thisretards the flow of fuel through the and thus permits the carburetor to operate on leaner part throttle mixture ratiosThe rotation of the throttle shaft controls theeconomizer system During part throttle operation from

factory specifications asregards fit of the throttle shaft If the fit ofthe throttle shaft is sloppy in the throttle bodyand it is desired to use the same throttle bodyfor reassembly of the carburetor then it isabsolutely necessary to install throttle shaftbushings A poorly fitting throttle shaft upsetsidling of the engine for the throttle plate willnot be correctly located in reference to the idledischarge port and also it is possible for additional air to be admitted into the throttle bodyaround the shaft which will also tend to upsetthe idleThe following procedure should be adhered toto properly install throttle shaft bushings inthe Zenith 161 Series To properly rebush the throttle body of theZenith 161 Series carburetor it is to have available the proper counterbore reamer and line reamer and the bushingdriver tool needed to install the new reamer No C161731 line reamerNo C161711 and bushing driver No C161721are used The bushing itself is CR913 Afterthe new throttle shaft bushing is in place it willbe necessary to redrill the economizer restriction located in the cover and the channel fromthe throttle body bore into the throttle shaftholeTo obtain the correct drill sizes for this operation consult the specification card covering theparticular outline in question To drill the channel from the throttle body bore into the throttleshaft hole it will be necessary to remove thebrass channel plug in the throttle body Thiscan be drilled out using a 332 drill and a newoversize plug No CR13710stalled after the drilling operation is completedThe throttle body should not be rebushed if theextent of wear of the throttle body and shaftdoes not warrant it However if the wear issevere enough to warrant a rebushing job thefollowing procedure should be followed1Place a suitable center in the drill press bedWith one throttle shaft hole on this centerbring the spindle down until the contacts the opposite shaft hole Thereamer in this instance is of a diameter toresult in a press fit for the outside diameterof the throttle shaft bushing2With the casting still in place as described inthe above paragraph set the stop on the pressto the length of the bushing This will giveyou the approximate setting of the hole is then counterbored to accommodatethe bushing4A throttle shaft bushing is driven into placeusing the proper bushing driver tool5And this bushing is then reamed with the linereamer Use the opposite shaft hole as a pilotto align the line reamer in the bushing6Now turn the casting over and prepare theopposite hole to take the bushing It will benecessary to reset the stops on the spindle againas described before Then counterbore the hole7Drive the second throttle shaft bushing line ream the inside diameter as the finalmachining operationThe casting is
