Hi All, I have just picked up a 12/20. the carb is missing and was wondering if anyone had a spare or could tell me what would do. A friend thought they had a Kingston fitted? Will get some pictures up. The number is 106113. Thanks John
As Phil said it is a L3V Kingston carburetor. From what I have seen there is no other tractor that used the same carburetor as the 12-20. The Challenger / Pacemaker used a very similar carburetor except it had the water injection and throttle butterfly in the carb where the 12-20 had those located in the vaporizer. A newer Challenger / Pacemaker carb can be used it the vaporizer is changed, but those are hard to find too.
Here are a couple of mine so you know what to look for.
Thank you both for your help. I am trying to load photos, I bought the gas engine shown from an old sawmill and they rang me later and said they had found this old tractor and was I interested in buying! I am really a stationary man but thought it would be a show stopper if I could get it running and take to a show as is. Any idea what year, roughly? Thanks John
Now that's a really nice engine! I know a few people this side that would like that, myself included!
Te Massey looks great, nice find and even better being offered it first. Hope you get it running, look forward to updates.
Nice engine there, Once you've got the tractor bug it's hard to shake off look at me, I was/still am gas engine mad and then I bought a old Allis-Chalmers crawler 3 years ago, and now I have 16 Tractors, (No. 17 is on it's way!!!) to go along with my dads 55 or 60 tractors. I had to get the correct carb for my Wallis 20-30 and that had to come from Indiana, after 18 months of searching and a tip off from a nice fellow collector
Good luck getting it going
