Question about John Deere 3010,3020 Tractor Basic Carburetor Repair

Open Question

I have an early model john deere 3020 gas and am having problems with it running rich. It has electronic ignition to replace the points and I put new wires, coil, and plugs in this spring but it still runs rich and idles high when it gets warm. I had RDO in town rebuild the carb and it seems worse that before. It has a zenith carburetor on it. RDO said that they could not rejet the carb and I think that they are wrong. Does anyone have any ideas for me or can anyone tell me where to buy new jets for these Zenith carbs? Thanks for any help you can give.

John Deere Snowblower 1032 won't start. Obvious solution?


First dump the old gas and put in fresh. Clean or replace spark plug.
Put a squirt of starting fluid in the carb. If it fires the ignition system is good. Do this a few times because there is still old gas in the float bowl and fuel line. When the fresh gas gets to the carb it will stay running. If it did not fire with starting fluid the points and condensor will need to be replaced and maybe the coil.

Have you checked that your float is working properly in the carb? If it is sticking with the plunger shut it will block fuel inlet regardless of having fuel supply?

Have you checked to see if there is definitely fuel in the line at the carb when it's acting up?

Have you made sure that there is still spark when it quits running? You could have something that is grounding out when it warms up and makes it quit firing that while you 'fuss' with gas issues, cools enough to spark then fails again. Hard to say without more details. Also are you sure there isn't a clogged fuel filter in the tank, carb-inlet or inline somewhere?
