I rebuilt a dtlx double induction M S Carb off of

I rebuilt a dtlx double induction M S Carb off of a John Deere 60. The dealer I bought the tractor from said to set the float level 3/4" from the gasket surface on the float bowl to the top of the float. When I turned on the gasoline at the sediment bowl, gas began to leak out of the intake side of the carb. 1. do I have the float level set correctly 2. is there another problem that causes this.
Thank you

SOURCE: I cleaned my carb on

On most float-type carburetors, the float is usually perpendicular to the edge of the carburetor body when the needle is seated.Turn the carb upside down and adjust the float if necessary, to where the float is parallel to the carburetor bowl mounting surface. There are tangs at the front of the float where it hangs on the pin that can be bent up or down to accomplish this.

I can not get my John Deere 2020 to start. I have replace my battery, rebuilt the starter, and replaced the key switch. What else can I check?

the john deere 2020 gas tractor has a automatic reset breaker. If the tractor has a short it will shut off power to the ignition switch and reset in 60 sec. If the breaker is bad you will have power at the switch until you turn it to start or ecc.then no power at the ignition switch. I can not find the breaker. let me know if you do.

Where can I get a new carb four 2010 john deere not rebuild .will not start when worm.

You should be able to get a new carb from any john Deere dealer.You may want to check the tractor for fire when it's warm,you may have a coil breaking down when warm due to the oil has leaked out over the years.I would check to see if you have spark or not before buying a new carb.

Try going to your local john deere dealer and tell the man at the counter with your engine model and seail number and ask him if you can by a print out of you carb, most times they will giveit to you. Or if you can get the numbers off your carb and type, go to your small engine supply store, they will give you one.
