De-Icer For Older Model Tractors
For years Roger Kuntz had problems in freezing weather with carburetor icing in his old Massey Harris tractor. He solved the problem by making an air pre-heater for the tractor and says the idea would work on other tractors, too.
The idea involved making a heat chamber around the muffler pipe. Outside air enters the chamber through perforations at the bottom, runs up along side the heated exhaust pipe, and then out through a piece of pipe down to the air cleaner and into the carburetor.
Kuntz says the hot air keeps the carburetor free of ice and also helps efficiency of the engine. "It's a simple idea that's easy to make and works well," he says. Contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Roger Kuntz, Rt. 1, Box 69, Grainfield, Kan. 67737.
