i could really use a breakdown of the carb on this.. ive cleaned the carb and stuck it in my untrasonic cleaner and it still surges unless i put the choke on just a tad.. i need to see if these a o ring missing someplace or maybe the wrong jet... it will idle fine but at opperating speed surges a little.. ive removed the main jet its spotless and cleaned all the passage ways and blown them out a few times its gotten better (having to use less and less choke) each time ive cleaned it.. id like to get and extra needle and seat and gas tank sediment bowl to

email vdub4201@aol.com

thanks in advance!

I emailed you a workshop manual on this unit. Maybe the carb section will help you find the problem.

I have a KUBOTA 1k identical to this. Mine was built by them. I wonder if they built them for ONAN too. I have a manual for it if you would like it.

I found soaking the carbs in 90% rubbing alcohol for a few hours then blowing with air cleans them very well.
