After looking at your info and looking at carbs most mysteries solved. Of course the rebuilt carb with the wider stud spread is missing its tag. The side of the bowl does have a 20 E stamped on it. The other extra carb I have is a TSX 458 (ferguson/massy)massage. The carb original to my 51 8N is a TSX241B. I was looking to switch carbs because of poor running condition. Start right up at 1/4, run OK, increase throttle and die. Made adjustment, run ok at 1/2 throttle. Put in gear, release clutch and die after moving 3 inches. Made one more adjustment after researching info on here. Starts right up, runs good in all throttle ranges, but need 3/4 throttle to make tractor move. Seems to me that's awful high RPM's to have to run at to get the tractor to operate. Any thoughts?
