Ensign type R carb disassemble ?


Recommended Posts

Trying to see what is going on with this brass carb & float off a  10-20 .   I removed the bottom acorn nut and the thing is still solid in one piece ?    Should start to loosen up each section of the carb ?    Info says that bottom nut holds just about the whole carb together ?           Any one take one of these apart lately to know ?          Same carb on a Regular from what I read .

You found the weak spot of this carburetor.  The shaft that the nut came off of is hollow and easily twists off and is ruined. Put your favorite lubricant in there and let it work. If you are lucky you can start to rotate the body parts and work it loose.

    Thanks for the reply .   I thought so too that this assembly should slip off that stem .   I think its a 2 dissimilar metals not liking each other problem too .

I can see the float is stuck as it will not budge or flip flop in the inside of the bowl . Just like the stem holding it together .

Now that I have gotten a rebuild kit from Branson ,  The suction stem that was hard to get out and damaged ,  is replaced with a new one .  BUT  the new one just slips through the bottom body of carburetor where the old one was stuck .     Is that going to make the carburetor run poorly  ??     Any brass carb rebuilders notice this when you do a Ensign  R    rebuild ?
