656 Carburetor

Recommended Posts

I have a new to me 656 Gas, I believe it has the Marvel carb.  It has set with bad gas for I don’t know how long and I managed to get it cleaned and running just not very good.  Has anyone purchased the Zenith replacement carb from Steiner?  If so how well does it run?  Not planning on working her too hard just disc the garden and blade the drive.  See below, once she’s running good I will be asking about paint tips.

Unless the carb is damaged beyond repair, don't buy a new one.  No reason to.  If you can't get it rebuilt right, pay someone to do it. Still cheaper than a new one.  There isn't a carb easier to rebuild than these old MS carbs.

That is a IH carburetor.  Not Marvel Schebler.   Good carburetors.
