I'll check on the choke location etc. I've taken those style Marvels apart and reversed the choke/throttle levers.

Thanks Doug, I'll keep your offer in mind. A machinist friend is getting a power needle from a friend of his. I don't know what it from but I'm thinking an Allis or Farmall with a Marvel carb. We are thinking the plug on top of the carb. where carbs. like the 406 have the power needle, could be knocked out and the power needle could be put in the 403. There are threads under the 403 plug and there is a jet where the needle would seat. Without the power needle, the jet hole regulates the mixture but with the power needle, the hole is adjustably (word?) shut down and the mixture is regulated.
Anyway, that is what we are hoping will happen??
Does the Case VAC carb. have the throttle and choke on the same side as the 403? The Allis carbs. have them on the opposite side.
Thanks again.

Has anyone found a muffler for an OC-3 in a tractor store that fits without much modification. I have read that a 1.5" O.D. inlet goes inside the exhaust manifold outlet. My Oliver exhaust manifold also has a lip on the outside that is 1 7/8". I found an ac-1 (ALLIS) muffler that would work well  but it is just a little large on the inlet and I'd prefer to have it clamp to the O.D. of the exhaust manifold outlet (1 7/8"). The inlet length is 7" which would be just right. Before I start welding up an adapter, is there anyone that has found an easy to fit muffler.

I checked all my carbs and the all the ones that were, or on HG's and OC-3's have the adjustable main jet. I'm thinking someone changed yours. Best thing you can do is get the right one. I do have an extra Marvel with an adjustable main, it's from a Case VAC. Different #, but basically the same carb from an engine with a displacement close to what the IXB is. If you can't find the exact one, this one would work.

Hi Blake, they drove it till the throw out went threw the clutch fingers. It was covered in giant prickly pear before we looked at it and when we got to it it had small prickly pear growing out of everywhere. it took a lot of time to coax the engine into life one cylinder at a time  Smiley. How they drove it amaised me as the steering bands were steel on steel so getting it of the mountain was difficult and onto the truck without steering. The only things that worked ok was the blade and ripper. I have some video of starting it and moving it i will post later when i work how to do so. Cheers Keith
