Oil bath

I found an old 3 piece oil bath (lid, element, can) however, it seams to be missing a gasket between the top of the carb neck and the can. It causes the vehicle to run rich. I have tried with varying oil levels and without oil, no change.

Any ideas?


You know you only truly love your old truck or tractor after the point at which you are ready to push it off a cliff, but you suck it up, get it running, and get it back into service...... The 3rd time

And I cleaned the element in the same manner as my two piece oil bath, and dried and oiled it, no luck.

My oil bath has no gasket between the carb and the base that sits on it. Near as I can tell it never did. There is a rubber seal between the base and the copper filter media canister then again between the filter media canister and the lid. I think it's more of a carb issue than a filter issue.

Mine is missing the gaskets on either side of the element. The carb sorks great with a paper or the later style air cleaner. I will see if I can recreate or track down the missing seals.
